    Hi everyone! My BF and I have recently decided to get married in Mexico next year, and I'm looking for some guidance, as I'm all over the map. We decided on May 2011, and somewhere in the Mayan Riviera. My sister got married almost 2 years ago at the Barcelo Maya Beach, and it was very lovely. I would like to use a different resort for mine, and the number of guests we will most likely have will be about 50-80, including some kids. I'm leaning towards Dreams, Riu, and Grand Princess resorts. Any suggestions would help me so much in narrowing down a resort. We are planning on checking out a resort in a few months, and I am having a hard time in deciding which group of resorts to go with. My BF is leaning towards Dreams Tulum, for the chapel, and I am looking for a swim up bar, many restaurant selections, and a large enough place to handle a large group privately. Also, I would like the option to bring in a photographer, and not use the resort's photographer. I'm sorry this is still pretty vague. I'm sure my requirements will become more specific as I check out some more threads. Thanks for your help!!!

                      Welcome! Happy to see another Vancouver bride! My two-cents worth would be: don't rush into making decisions, you have lots of time!

                      Glad to hear that Barcelo was great for your sister as I am staying there with my guests for the wedding week and hoping to get married off-site. Good luck & happy planning!
