    Congrats and welcome!!

    After awhile you'l realize that you can't really listen to the reviews too much. People have varying opinions of whats good and bad and expectations as well.

    I suggest you decide on what kind of wedding you want (families with kids or adults only) if you want something that caters to a particular religion, price per guest etc. Speak to a travel agent that travels to their brides destinations and knows first hand how the hotel is like to deal with.

    AI is FANTASTIC by the way... if you get a moderately priced and clean hotel, AI is the only way to go. It's so nice getting there and not having to carry cash or worry about what you can afford to eat/drink. I stayed at The ROYAL Cancun last year a month after I got engaged and was so impressed by how beautiful Mexico is and how good the food was at an AI that I was sold on doing our wedding in Mexico.

    Checking out the different threads here for various hotels will help as well.

    Good luck!

                You're gonna LOVE being a part of this amazing forum!!!

                My best advice as you start down the road to your wedding day would be just to take your time and do lots of research before you book or buy anything (resort, dress, flowers, you name it!) and make sure it's all that you've envisioned for your BIG DAY!

                And that's where this phenomenal site comes in: BDW has proven to be invaluable in my planning, and it's comforting to know that there are other brides and grooms out there experiencing the same highs and lows during their planning process...a friend is always just on the other side of your computer screen!

                CONGRATULATIONS and Welcome to BDW...it's a wedding-planning heaven!

                  Congrats and welcome...AI is great for the guests I've discovered and most AI resorts have some sort of fairly reasonably priced wedding package...but it's really up to you and your own personal preference.
