    Hello all - I just got engaged this past weekend and the only real decision we have made so far is that we are definitely doing a destination wedding! I love to travel and he just has too many friends & family for a tradional wedding (we do plan on doing a party back home after the wedding). I don't think we are getting married unil Nov 2011, so I have plenty of time...but I just can't stop myself from starting to look at locations for the wedding. I am thinking of the Riviera Maya or Cancun and so far I have been impressed with the wedding packages offered by the Dreams resorts. If you have any opinions or recommendations, I would really appreciate them!

      Courtney!! This is the best place to do research for sure. The Riviera Maya is AMAZING and the weather in November is ideal too. Not too hot, and past hurricane season! Have a great time planning!

        I see that you are a photographer - are there any resorts in that area you have photographed at that you would recommend? I really do want memorable pictures, so a resort that photographs well is important.

          Courtney,

          All the resorts are beautiful (seriously!), but Barcelo Maya Palace is one of our FAVORITE resorts. It is a huge property and there are just so many places to shoot, both day and gorgeous evening shots. The colors are warm and rich and it has the most photogenic Grecian gazebo. :) It has it's own private beach which is awesome too. I haven't posted photos from that one yet but I will get some on our vendor marketplace thread in just a little while. The Barcelo couple is actually from Greensboro, NC. :) One of our other favorites is the Royal in Playa. Not only is the property beautiful, but it is easy to walk into Playa and get some cool shots downtown. We do have some photos from a wedding there on our thread if you want to check it out:

          I will let you know when I get those others posted too. :)

                Hi Courtney! Congrats on your engagement! The Dreams resorts are amazing and have great wedding packages. My brother in law was married at Dreams Cancun and we got married at Dreams Puerto Vallarta. Do some searches for threads on Dreams and you will find a ton of information. Nov/Dec are beautiful times to get married in Mexico too. Happy planning :o)
