    Hi Everyone,

    My Name is Erika, and my fiance, Erick, and I are planning to get married in Riviera Maya in March or April of 2012. We are getting a super early start on our search because we want to give our family plenty of time to save as some of them are facing financial hardships. Erick and I are currently in the process of making our top three resort choices for our wedding because we want to book a flight in August of this year to stay in our #1 resort choice. We want to stay in our #1 resort choice this August so that we can personally experience what our guests would feel like when they come for our wedding. Although, we are a little worried that things might change too much from now until March/April 2012. We would also like to visit our #2 and #3 choices when we go in August to keep our options open. So far it looks like our top three choices are:
    • Excellence Riviera Cancun
    • El Dorado Royale
    • RIU Palace Riviera Maya

    I loved the pictures I saw of the Excellence Rivera Cancun and would love to have my wedding there!! But I'm afraid it would be too expensive for our guests So as of now, Erick and I have decided that RIU Palace Riviera Maya would probably be our best choice because it is the least expensive of the three above and it seems from reviews and pictures that it is a beautiful resort.

    So therefore, I have a very important question: Can anyone please provide feedback on weddings at the RIU Palance Riviera Maya resort? I really need feedback from people who have personally been there for a wedding or have had a wedding there. I really appreciate in advance anyone who could provide feedback as, I'm sure you all know, this is going to be one of the most important days of my life! :)

    Also, I plan on using destinationweddings.com as a wedding coordinator (to assist in booking flights/hotels for my guests)... can anyone provide feedback on them? Do they offer competitive quotes? Thank you once again in advance for anyone who can provide feed!!! I really appreciate it! :)
