    Thanks so much everyone for the warm welcome. I didn't realize there were so many of you from the DC area!

    We are expecting about 80-90 people (including children). Ideally, we are looking for a somewhat private place to have the reception, possibly a restaurant terrace overlooking the water, but we want to be able to dance and carry-on without any time restrictions. His family is Latin and they will party until the sun comes up! :)

    We are coming down for a site visit on September 21 through 23 and hope to be able to narrow our options to a handful. We want to be able to check out the local Catholic Churches as well. Has anyone done their civil and then a religious ceremony in PDC?

            My fiancee and I are planning a May 10, 2008 wedding and we think we have narrowed it down to the Playa del Carmen area. We want to be married in a Catholic Church (yes we are aware of how complicated it may be) and then have a reception on/near/overlooking the beach. We are having a heck of a time deciding where to have the reception though. I am hoping that with all the wonderful information that is in this forum, we will be able to pick the perfect spot for us.

            I hope everyone is doing well! Congrats to all you brides out there.

            Hey Melissa! Welcome! Where in DC are you from? That's where I was born and raised. Mom and Dad just sold their house on the Potomac in Fort Washington to move full time to Ocean City..

                Welcome Melissa!

                25 minutes of Playa Del Carmen is Dreams Tulum resort and Spa. They have a chapel there... maybe you can have your wedding there...

                      I have already found so many wonderful ideas on this forum and haven't even come close to looking at everything. Thanks again for everyone's kind greetings.

                      For those asked and who are familiar with the DC area, I actually live in Rosslyn. Originally from Columbus, Ohio, I moved here via Minnesota almost 10 years ago and I love it here!!

                      Annie ~ Thanks for your suggestion about Dreams Tulum. Unfortunately the chapel there can only hold about 20 people and we plan on having 4 times that many people.

                      The research continues...
