    My name is Shelly!
    Andy and I are getting married in April of 2010
    And we're looking for somewhere gorgeous in Playa Del Carmen!

    Like most of you I'm absolutely overwhelmed with options and need your help to narrow it down!

    Can you PLEASE give me your top 3 wedding resort choices?

    And do you recommend staying at the same resort as your wedding?

    HELP!!! :)

              Hi Shelly! Congratulations and welcome!!
              I have to say that choosing the location is the most excrutiating part! It is however a very personal choice in my opinion as not everyone is looking for the same thing in a resort. For example, you may be looking for something reasonably priced for guests or you want certain features, etc. What I did was wrote down the most important things that I wanted. From there I was able to eliminate a lot of places. I would recommend doing the same thing. There is so much info on here that it should help with your decision. Good luck!

                  Congrats and welcome to the forum. I agree...make a list of pros and cons and just realize you can't make everyone happy but you can make yourself happy and that is what matters most! Have fun exploring!

                  Hi Shelly!
                  Definitely list out what you and your fiance want out of your wedding. Do you need a resort with a beautiful beach? do you want to get married ON the beach or in a gazebo? do you want a church wedding? Do you want a private outdoor reception? Will kids be allowed? what is your price range for your guests?
                  Once you start to answer all of these questions then you'll find it MUCH easier to narrow down your resorts. But the key is finding out what you and your fiance want out of YOUR wedding. Not what someone else wants.
