    Hi everyone, My name is Hanna and I just became a member after browsing the forum for a while for information for our upcoming DW. We are getting married in April-May 2011 in Mexico, Riviera Maya. As my subject line states I'm trying to choose a resort and it is so much harder than I ever thought.
    We are looking for an affordable AI resort with a very nice beach and preferably some kind of gazebo for the ceremony. We have guests from all over the world so we really want something everyone can afford.
    Any suggestions are appreciated :)

          Welcome. From what I've heard the best guaranteed white sandy beaches are often close to Cancun (if that helps at all). But there are sooo many great resorts to chose from! Congrats on the engagement and best of luck in the planning!

            Thank you!! I have been to Cancun and love the white sand, but trying to find something outside of Cancun and Playa de Carmen (not so close to the cities in other words). I love Azul Beach, but trying to find something a bit less expensive so now I'm looking at Catalonia Riviera Maya. Though it seems as their only wedding location is on the beach.

              There's just so many... what about Ocean Coral & Turquesa, Barcelo Maya and the NOW Jade Riviera. Those might be good ones to take a glance at?

              (I of course think the Azul Sensatori is ideal b/c it's where I'm getting married).

                I do like Azul Sensatori as well and got the pricing from my TA the other day. Love Now Jade Riviera as well, but way too expensive for us. Barcelo is just huge, too big for my taste. I guess beggers can't be choosers but I still hope I will be able to find a beautiful resort with reasonable prices. I really want it to be affordable for our guests since most of them are traveling from Europe (a couple from Australia) and staying for 1-2 weeks.

                  Check out the Catalonia Riviera Maya. It is a fantastic resort, I visited with my family last Nov. and am getting married there on Sept. 7th of this year! The prices are great as well!

                    That's the one I've got my eyes on at the moment :) Is there only one ceremony location (on the beach with the white tent)? Also, I can't seem to find an official website (that includes the wedding packages) for them, do you have one?
                    Less than 2 months left for you, how exciting!!! :)

                      Welcome and good luck. I am getting married at the Now Jade. It has everything you are looking for. Maybe the prices will come down for you. Congrats!!!
