    Hi Rachael! Welcome to the forum!! I'm sorry to hear about your previous experience, but glad you're on track now. I hope the rest of the planning experience is much much better! There are plenty of great resorts in the Mayan Riviera/Cancun area! We had our wedding at the Bahia Principe and had a great time! Congrats on your engagement!

        Welcome to the forum and happy planning! You'll find lots of helpful info here. Check out Dreams Tulum, that is where we are getting married at in December and it has lots of great reviews!

              I totally understand how you feel, my fiance and I are still trying to weed through all the amazing resorts to find the right one for us! We are also looking in Cancun and Playa de Carmen. Good luck!

                  Congrats and welcome! I honestly don't think you'll have a problem finding a resort for under $300 a night, especially with fall being low season. Good luck, you've definitely come to the right place :)

She kept sending me links to hotels that we either not in the area we were looking, out of our budget or specifically not something we were interested in. When I asked her questions about resorts she had not suggested I received rather gruff emails as to why "her brides" don't want that. We then put the whole idea aside for a while thinking we just couldn't make it work.
                      Hmmmm I guess I need to do some reading. So far I am using DW and my planner Danny is fabulous. Very responsive, patient (I email him a lot!) and is listening to me. However, I will keep an open mind and do some digging. Any particular place you saw the gripes about DW?
