Welcome to the forum and congrats on your engagement!! Personally, I think selecting the location/resort was the hardest part of the process. I would recommend putting together a list of what you are looking for/what's important to you. For example - a few of the things we wanted were a family friendly resort, a beautiful beach for the ceremony, and not too long a flight to get there. But someone else may want an adults only resort....or to get married up in the cliffs, etc. Once you make your list, I would suggest finding a great TA. There's a link up at the top of this site to help you find a TA that specializes in DW's, or you can ask some of the girls on this forum for recommendations as well. I have a fabulous TA and she has made the process so much easier for me.But based on the list you make, and the budget you are looking to stay within, a good TA will be able to help guide you thru the process of selecting the resort and then making our reservations. After that you can start searching this forum for more info on things like a photographer, dresses, invitations, etc. :)


Happy planning!!

Congrats and welcome!!  I agree with hockeymom97...it all gets easier after picking the location/resort.


Do you have your top locations narrowed down?  You could always post them on here and ask people to share their thoughts.  This forum helped me tremendously in narrowing down my options.


Good luck!

Welcome to the forum and above all, congratulations for your engagement!

I think you should first start to choose the DW. It then all gets easier after picking the right location/resort. Have you thought about the Riviera maya?
One of the best things about Riviera Maya is the fact that you can get everything you dream, and it goes from the simplest things, up to the most elaborated...
I am certain that you will love it.
Your wedding is going to be full of magic and this website will help you a lot!

We wish you the best.

Happy planning.




Saludos desde Playa del Carmen!

Congrats and Welcome.  I thankfully turned to this site for some advice first.  I have just been reading through the forums and taking notes.... I am going to go see a TA next week to see what they suggest.  I will let you know how that go's.


Happy planning!!

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
