      Hi Lori and

      Do you feel that by having outside vendors that the will make more complicated with planning? By just using the resort list you maybe cutting yourself a little short, especially when it comes to photography. there are lots of great local photographers that are listed here on the board as well as many state side that are willing to travel. It would be a shame to go all that way and not have fantastic photos of your wedding.

          ~Lori Welcome! I had similar issues when picking a resort, I finally decided on Excellence Playa Mujeres based on reviews from Tripadvisor and a referral from a well traveled friend. Watch out for beach quality in the reviews you'll see many of the beaches arent swimable... Friends that attended a wedding at Excellence said My the food was awesome, especially the lobster tails!

            Maybe look for something closer to Playa del Carmen. There is so much within walking distance/short taxi ride.....shopping, nightlife, etc.

              Hi Lori,

              I'm a new bride to be also and have been doing ALOT of research. The only resort I've ever stayed at was the Iberstar Maya and it was AWESOME!! We have some friends who are getting married there in August that also have a small group of people attending. You should definitely check it out. Good Luck!

                Hi Lori,
                Congrats on your engagement & welcome to the forum.

                I am getting married this July at Secrets Maroma Beach. Cecilia the wedding coordinator there has been a pleasure to communicate with. If you have any questions about the resort there are a few girls on the forum that have been married there.

                Best of luck with your planning :)

                  Congratulaions!! Picking the resort will be the most difficult, once you do its smooth sailing from there. The Barcelo properties are all very nice. Good Luck and welcome!

                      Lori -

                      Congrats on your wedding! I am also getting married at Secrets Maroma Beach in May. I have heard such great things about the beach there and my TA has visited the property many times and has many great things to say about it...especially the beach. Like Beach2009 I have had a good experience working with Cecilia at SMB. I will not be using the photographer that the hotel offers but using an outside vendor, Sascha Gluck, with the help of this forum we found him and we are very excited as we didnt hear such great reviews about the one the hotel contracts with.

                      Good luck and after my wedding date if you have any questions or want any feedback let me know.
