Hi! I'm Lori, and this is my first post. My weddding date is Oct 3rd (I know its hurricane season then, but having lived in Savannah, GA and Charleston SC all my life- I'm not run off by hurricanes). I am having SO much difficulty picking a resort. Any advice from those married in the Maya Riviera region would be greatly aprreciated. I only have about 8 guests coming, and chose a destination wedding to dodge the planning and stress coupled with my inability to make a decision. I definatly want my wedding in this region, and it has to be at an allinclusive resort (my dadwon't go anywhere else). My fiance has requested "a beach like the ones you see on the Travel Channel" whhich has led my closer to the Maroma beach area. The quality of the resort beaches (sand texture, water color and clarity, and ability to do minor snorkeling are priority. My fiance has never been out of the country ( I have been 6 or 7 times to the Caribbean and Mexico alone) so it is SO important not to disappoint him. I fell in love with El Dorado Royale, but I'm more of a fun loving, margarita girl than a romantic, uppity food girl (alhtough quality of food is very important- I wasn't impressed with the Palace resort food last time I went to Cancun). I don't want outside vendors, I want to keep it simple, and I want vibrant mango and magenta tropical flowers, so if your know of a the perfect resort for me...PLEASE help!! Thanks!
