        I am not from a borough... I am from Long Island but I thought I would stop in and say hi. I am getting married next August in Cancun at the Moon Palace. I know what you mean, I did not want typical Russos on the Bay either, even if I could afford to have it there! lol I worked at the Carlyle on the Green in Bethpage and I could never have a wedding like that EVER!!!!

            We will most likely get married at the Royal in Cancun but have the cermony next door at the Gran Caribe in the new Catholic Chapel. I've stayed at the Royal twice before and LOVE IT!!! I'm actually going back in 2 weeks to see the new chapel and meet with vendors. If anyone needs me to get any info or take pics just let me know. I leave on 9-5-09.

            omg!!! you just took away all my worries!! Were getting married at the royal in Cancun too! and you are the only other girl on this board that apparently is, I was getting so nervous! We stayed there last year in May for a week and was in love with everything, were going back Nov 27th to confirm and do our site visit.

              I have to say it'd be pretty damn fun to compare notes!

              So, this is what we bought. Got a zipcar & went over to Men's Wearhouse in Paramus on Sat. I called 3 area stores & the one on Rt17 was the only one that still carried it cuz it's on sale. It's on their website, but he wanted to try it on cuz he didn't know if he wanted a linen suit or just pants & a shirt. Still not sure about what type of shirt yet, but rest assured it won't be salmon.

              Have you been to the Majestic Elegance or Punta Cana before? We went a couple summers ago to the Majestic Colonial in PC and loved it! The DR is so beautiful!

                LOL I got so happy after I read the not salmon part lol. Thank you for that.
                Yea we actually went down to the majestic in the beginning of the month..long story short i've always wanted a wedding away..he could care less..so when we got engaged it basically came down to the fact that i could have what i've always dreamt of BUT..i had no clue what I wanted lol..so i drove myself nuts with like 50 websites open everyday looking at pictures of places..finally i said screw it lets just pick one island and then go there see what we like..everyone told us DR is the cheapest for ppl coming in from NY..so we decided DR, thats the one place i never been...then narrowed it down to 3 hotels..riu palace, paradisus & majestic..riu was our 1st stop & i'll leave my comments to myself on that one..Majestic elegance was our 2nd and we booked it on the spot.

                      Ha! I know what you mean about obsessing over which hotel to go with! That was the hardest part of this whole planning experience! Anyway, it's great you were able to do a site visit (or did I misunderstand?) - that has to help A LOT! We're flying blindly here. I visited Puerto Vallarta a long time ago, but we haven't been to our resort. I know I love that city for its beauty & culture and we're just going off others' reviews here and Trip Advisor and having faith that it'll be great. fingers crossed we'll love it.
