Hey I also got engaged on Christmas :) And we too are having a Mexican wedding in January of 2011. I know you said you wanted it near cancun, but have you concidered Cabo san Lucas, In the Baja (BCS)? We stayed at the Hilton there last year for my fiance's birthday. AMAZING!!!!! The beach was beautiful. No Seaweed at all! When we started planning the wedding we looked at each other and said "CABO!" It is a true paradise. I can't express how wonderful this place is. Look up some photos or if you would like I could send you pictures.

I've never been to Cancun, but it is a pretty big tourist place. A lot of my friends have been and everytime I hear it is crowded. When we went to Cabo, I think that there was maybe 10-15 other people at the Hilton. ...and if I'm not mistaken -Dec.-March is their main tourist months. Other than that everything is pretty much calm, so if you wanted something more personal with not a lot of tourists, that would be another reason for Cabo, but that depends on your personality along with your wedding party/guests.

Just some food for thought :)

Congradulations on the wedding, It'll be a wonderful day, no matter where you end up. best wishes!

Hi there!

Congrats on your engagement! My fiance and I went through the same thing as you, I think. To be honest, I think the seaweed is something that may happen at any of the resorts depending on the weather, time of year, etc. However, most of them have people who come out in the mornings and comb/clean the beaches to avoid that. Perhaps thinking about having a morning wedding might help.

Moon Palace is a gorgeous resort. I'm sure you won't go wrong no matter where you choose. However, if it helps you at all - when we were planning our MX wedding (we ended up not being able to have ours there), we were between RIU Palace and Dreams Tulum.

Good luck in planning!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
