      CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

       

      Have you been to the area before?

       

      I think the biggest thing to consider first of all is if you are interested in more of the all inclusive resort style wedding or if you are leaning more towards an a different idea.  This can be accommodations at condos, boutique hotel, villa, house, etc, and then the wedding can be held at a number of different locations such as beach clubs, chapels, restaurants, etc.

       

       

      There are a lots of different options and ideas you can explore - all depends on your vision and a bit on your budget.

       

      If you get a chance to come down for a site inspection those can be very helpful in visualizing everything too!!!

       

      HAVE FUN!!!!! :)

      Leanne

        THanks Leanne..

        I have not been the area but friend of ours got married down there. Destination wedding seems to fit what were looking for the best. We want something small and intimate maybe 30-40 people if that. If I could have it my way .. Id love to just show up with my wedding dress and have things set up for us!! I want a drama/stress-less wedding :) if thats possible..

          The Royal in Playa del Carmen!  I am a little biased though lol.  I am getting married at The Royal in Cancun, but I've heard that Royal PDC is awesome.  It is all inclusive and adults only, and their sister hotel is Gran Porto Real PDC and it is family friendly.  It really depends on what your interests, and budget are. 

           

          Congrats! And good luck on your search!

            I think your first step is to determine what you envision for your wedding, and narrow it down from there by price, features, location, etc. We really wanted something small and intimate, so we pretty much ruled out the all-inclusives right away. We just booked at Mahekal Beach Resort and I'm really excited to get started planning all the details. It's a huge weight off your shoulders once you book a venue!

              AlyMay, when is your wedding?!  My wedding group is staying at the Mahekal and I will have all my events there.  My wedding itself is off site, but I love Mahekal's atmosphere.  I hope you are enjoying planning!!!!

                  Our wedding is 4/21/12. I hope you'll let me know how your stay at Mahekal goes. I love that it's a smaller resort, but that also means fewer people have stayed there and it's harder to find tips and advice. So far we've pretty much just reserved the date, so I haven't started much of the "real" planning yet.

                    You are exactly, right. Not many brides have stayed there, so there aren't a lot of reviews and suggestions, but I fell in love with the size and feel of the resort.  I visited in June and met a couple of the people who work there.  Urs is fantastic...he's the food and beverage guy.  He responds quickly and seems like he has put together a lot of events.  I am planning to do a cocktail welcome reception and the rehearsal dinner there.  They have been pretty open to hearing my ideas and trying to make it work.
                    I will definitely let you know how everything goes and pass along anything that I learn along the way!
