    I am not sure if anyone will be able to help me out, but I will at least feel better sharing this! My FI and I love RM and are looking at a few locations. Price is a deciding factor, don't want to bankrupt our guests, but my biggest deciding factor is that my Mom is a teacher and can only come to my wedding over March Break (too expensive!) and over Easter weekend which we are looking at. So in the catholic church you can't get married on Easter. Good Friday is the 22 of April, Easter Sunday the 24 and Easter Monday the 25th. That leaves Thurs April 21st and Sat April 23rd. I don't know if they will even marry us on these days at the resorts. Not sure how I go about finding this out. Any other Catholic brides there??
    The only other option is to wait til end of June/first week of July when she is done school. Isnt that the start of the rainy season??
    Any help/advice would be much appreciated. Thanks for listening ladies!

      Hey when I called my resort they said that Monday the 25th was open but Saturday the 23rd was not. We are set to get married on the 25th at 4pm. We are getting married at the Barcelo Maya palace and this place is great!!!!! Not sure what it is like at the other resorts. They even have a catholic church on site. I know it is hard this was the only time that work for our families as well. Well good luck and talk to you soon.

        We initially planned to get married in RM on Easter weekend as well but I soon found out that many of the vendors I wanted to hire weren't available during that weekend... make sure you check that out.

            We got married during Easter weekend (the day before Easter) at the Valentin Imperial Maya. We loved the resort, everything was beautiful, and would highly recommend it. They have a chapel that they only use for Catholic ceremonies, and it wouldn't have been a problem for us to have a Catholic ceremony either. DH is Catholic, I'm not confirmed, so we decided to have a symbolic ceremony on the beach. But, we could have done it if we really wanted to.

              Thanks Ladies. We still haven't decided on a resort yet. I got quotes for the Riu but it is more expensive than I would like for our guests.
              The Valentin Imperial Maya is an adult only resort?? Too bad! My sister has a 6 month old baby and our best friends have a 2 year old so we need a kid friendly resort. I have a TA now helping me look into everything so we will keep looking.

              Hmm, this doesn't sound very good then! What vendors were you looking into that were booked? I haven't got that far yet!

              Thanks for your advice!

                I just thought I would post an update on here.  We are getting married at the El Dorado Chapel in a  catholic ceremony and staying/having reception at Azul Sensatori.  I'm so happy!
