Im sure all the Riviera brides will be of great help to you. We all went through trying to pick a perfect place too. Ask lots of questions if you need to and hopefully your decision will be a cinch.

Congrats and welcome to the forum !


You already know you want to get married on the Riviera Maya and believe me that's huge ! It took me a few weeks to narrow it down to THAT point !


The Riviera Maya has a lot of boutique hotels and you can also chose to do a non-resort wedding, with your guests staying at a resort.


Somebody mentioned Tulum - there's also Akumal (check out the place where MarieSam got married) or Xel Ha, that is offering a very romatic set-up. SanFranSara got married at a place called "Al Cielo", which is on the beach. In all these cases your guests will have to stay at another place (the two first places don't have accomodation and the last one only a few rooms). So that can be an option.


To find MarieSam and SanFranSara contributions you can do a search, "search by user" and select "thread started by user" after typing their name. Narrow down the search to the Riviera Maya, for the site visits, and to the wedding details (where you have the planning journals and the wedding reviews) for the details. Both did a great job on their site visits and this could really help you.


I got married at a boutique hotel that I believe could accomodate all your guests as they 25 rooms. It was pretty upscale but without being posh, and very romantic. You might have to book the whole hotel though so I'm not sure if it will turn out that affordable. But if you like the place, you should just check out with them and see what they say. There's a link to my site visit in my signature below. Also check their website, their wedding section has pretty amazing pics (from Matt Addock I think).


Good luck with your planning !

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
