Hey everyone...so a quick update. Since I was on here last we changed course and decided to do Mexico instead of the USVI or Puerto Rico.
We're getting married at the Dreams Riviera Cancun (which I've heard a lot of good things about on this forum and elsewhere).
In the end, Mexico was just more affordable because of the great selection of all-inclusives. For example, we got a 5-night all-inclusive stay at a great resort INCLUDING a basic wedding for what we would have paid for just the hotel at some of the islands we were considering.
A couple people have to get passports, and yes, we'll have to do the legal stuff here. But it's not as big a deal as I thought it would be. I hated forgoing the idea of an "island wedding" but in the end, this just made more sense.
So I'm super excited. I'm all booked, bought the dress and am waiting on the RSVPs. I'll be posting in the Mexico forums from now on. Thanks for all the great advice!
