I think we are now looking at Mexico. Maybe NOW Jade or one of the Azul resorts.We are from Texas, so going to Mexico is cheap and easy because it is so close. At first my family was reluctant because of the violence in Mexico, but the Riviera Maya is safe so they finally agreed. I too thought this would be low stress, but it is totally worth it!
JenniferLeigh77- I love Zoetry too! We might honeymoon there. It is too chill for our rowdy wedding group though!
Deesanders33- Thanks! I am really considering using destinationsweddings.com too. Glad you are having a good experience! Jamaica looks great, we can't find a resort that really fits all our needs. For example- having several children under 4, and 2 17 year olds coming. Plus every other age range you can think of! hard to meet everyone's needs and ours!
BusyBee123- You are right about reviews of places, it seems everyone has had bad experiences everywhere, so which to listen too and which are flukes. Sounds like a crazy trip to DR you had!! Flying from Texas the DR is at least 7 hours, where Jamaica and Mexico are much much shorter. That is one big reason we decided not to go to DR. The Gran Bahia Prinicpe looks awesome! I hope your wedding is amazing there!
