    Hey ladies! I've looked all through alot of the threads on here, and I cant find the answer to this one (ok a few!) question: I'm trying to decide on where to have my wedding, & a very important aspect of the resort is that there is at least one (preferably multiple) bar open until at least 2am. My friends are definitely a late night bunch, and I'd like it so that we dont have to leave the resort often. A great assortment of restaurants & a great pool and/or beach are important also. Lastly, a resort with receptions on the beach (I know almost all of them do them on the beach but I've found a few that dont!) Basically just want to have a blast for a week with our friends & family. Thanks to anyone that can offer a little insight, I'm a little overwhelmed trying to find the perfect resort, & I havent gotten responses to any of my emails to the wedding planners of the resorts yet, so you are my only hope for suggestions!

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

      Have you thought of 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 would love it.

      To check out various resorts, a good place to go is the hotel review section on tripadvisor.com and the venue reviews here.  TA will not offer many wedding reviews, but the list is probably more extensive and you can come back here to learn more about wedding experiences. I would suggest using both resources. 

      Your wedding is going to be full of magic and this website will help you a lot!

      We wish you the best.

      Happy planning.

        Congratulations!  It can be very overwhelming starting to figure out where you want to go, my you have already narrowed down some key factors that are important to you, so that's a good start!  I worked with a travel agent and gave him the location I wanted and what was important to me that the resort offered and he really helped me select a resort that met all my needs.  Keep researching and ask questions, best way to get the perfect place.  Good Luck!

          Well, it sounds like you would do best at a larger All Inclusive resort which can offer many bar options and also provide enough entertainment to keep your guests from leaving often!  


          Not sure if you are looking for adult-only resorts, but that factor will impact the type of late-night bar scene you are looking for.  I would focus on the larger AI's first and then start narrowing down based on your other criteria.  I definitely recommend checking out Trip Advisor to get a sense of the nightlife of the hotels you are considering.

          I am definetly searching for the same type of resort, and I was thinking Adults Only was the way I wanted to go!
