    Hello fellow brides to be! My name is Amy and this is my first post on this forum. I am hoping you can help because I am going CRAZY!! I am in the midst of planning a destination wedding for April of 2008 and have narrowed it down to Punta Cana and Riveria Maya - BUT I am shooting towards Riveria Maya. Any suggestions of great AI resort in Riveria Maya for approx. 30+ people with kids. I would like something reasonable for my guests with easy access to places. Most of the people with us are in their 30s and enjoy the nightlife. I was also thinking of having a catholic ceremony in the Xcaret Park chapel - it looks beautiful.

    Thanks for your help ladies!

          Welcome to the forum Amy! There's a LOT of RM brides to be on here so you'll be able to get plenty of feedback pretty quickly. Sorry I can't be of more help. Good luck with the planning!

          Welcome! I'm VERY close to Milwaukee!!

          What about the Occidental Grand Xcaret? I hear it's beautiful, plus then you'll be really close to the chapel at Xcaret. And your guests can go to the Xcaret park for free :)

            Thanks TIseege (fellow cheesehead) for the info. I have looked into the Occidental and it is an option. The only thing is that the beach is very small (its a lagoon) and I guess its far from everything. I'm getting a lot of my info. from trip advisor.
