    My wife and I decided to get married in Tulum when we went there for the first time (our first trip there was just random), for us it was important to have our union in a place we loved...

      We've never been to Dreams either. and eveyone was telling us "you have to go there first, blah blah blah" i was like Dude- are you gonna pay for that?!

      I've read probably every single review on trip advisor and other sites and of course the BDW girls have been a HUGE help!

      i guess we'll see how it goes!!!! fingers crossed!!

          I have been to the Riviera Maya twice for vacations, but not to the resort we are having the wedding though. Never even heard of the resort until I started doing research...lol.

          And our honeymoon is going to be in St Lucia at Anse Chastenet/Jade Mountain... never been to the island or hotel before either.

            I have been to Playa about 10 years ago with my family, but I have never seen the RPRM. Tyler has never been to playa at all! We were just happy with the great pics and reviews.

              I used to work for a Student Tour Operator and literally LIVE in Mexico for 8-10 weeks every summer. I have been ALL OVER. FI and I have been to Cabo, PV and Ixtapa together many times. We both LOVE Cabo and it is close enough to where we live that it is fairly inexpensive for people to travel there. We have not been to the resort - we made that decision soley on reviews from BDW. We are going there at the end of May to check things out and get the lay of the land, but at that point it will be too late to change anything. We are confident that we made the right decision!

              Yup! We just chose a resort which had pretty pictures and was in our budget. I actually chose our resort when there wasn't much information on it on this forum too, so that was scary! I doubted it many times, but in the end... we LOVED it!
              It was also nice that we didn't have built up expectations. Like if we had gone to a resort and it was fabulous and the food was amazing and the service top notch, I'd be so nervous that I would tell all of our guests that and then they'd have high expectations and it'd be an "off week" or something and it wouldn't live up to their expectations. By going in site unseen we were all excited and everything was new and awesome.

                what better way to start your wedding life than on blind faith!! You love each other and you and your family are together so what else really matters. I am jumping in head first after being together 11 years and 2 kids later and I am so excited. These sites also make it less tressful by reading reviews of others who have been there. Carol

                    I've never been to my resort but it has good reviews and all the stuff I want ie: all-inclusive. I think most of us are in the same boat that's why we love this forum.
