        Hello fellow newbie!

        I focused on time when we selecting Jamaica. Our time frame for our wedding is tight so I didn't want to spend more than 6 or 7 hours flying. I also wanted a resort that was relatively close to the airport so our guests wouldn't have to spend a bunch of additional time traveling to the resort. Also certain islands/resorts require different residency requirements in order to get married. There are some places that require you to be there for 72 hours not counting weekends before you can be married. That would have been too much time for us to be there before the ceremony.

        We also looked at amenities at the resorts and what activities are offered.

        Oh, yeah and price too!

        Good luck making your decision!

              Congratulations and welcome to the forum! You'll be overwhelmed with information here but I'm so grateful for it. My friends and family are mainly in California, but my FI's family is in Maryland/Florida, so we "triangulated" and decided on the Riviera Maya to be fair to both sides.

              Best of luck with planning!

                      Congrats and welcome !

                      I'm also from Houston and we finally decided for the Riviera Maya because it is so convenient to fly to Cancun from Houston - tons of direct - and short - flights ! Other places where there are direct flights to are Puerto Rico, and possibly other places in Mexico.

                      Good luck with your planning !
