    My name is Melissa and I was married on April 6, 2006 in Playa del Carmen. I obviously am not planning a wedding but thought I may be able to offer advice to other brides planning a wedding in the Riviera Maya.

                  We stayed, along with our families, at Grand Coco Bay Resort which was a great hotel. We actually didnt do a wedding through our hotel. Instead I had a wedding coordinator in Playa del Carmen who did the organizing. We were shuttled to a private beach for our wedding ceremony which was beautiful and allowed for amazing pictures that didnt have interesting looking people in their swimsuits in the background :) The beach was called Xaman Ha beach I believe. It was listed as one of the options through our wedding coordinator. The coordinators are Destination Weddings and Wedding Planning Services in Playa del Carmen They did a pretty good job although I didnt work with the usual lady who does them. Instead I might have had like an intern or something. Everything that I asked for was done when I got there so it still went well. After our wedding, we hired a mariachi band to play for us at the beach and then we had a parade through the city of Playa del Carmen with teh mariachi band playing along with us. That was truly an amazing experience that I am so glad we did! Everybody loved seeing us parade through the city and our guests really enjoyed it too!! No better way to announce your marriage!

                    That sounds awesome! If you wish, feel free to share your pics and any reviews you have. There are a lot of RM brides here :)
