I think your post is one of the most exciting posts I've read yet! I'll explain in a minute but first let me say, CONGRATULATIONS! Woo Hoo! I'm so happy for you.
I wanted to let you know that I stayed at the Ocean Maya in 2006 and that trip changed the life of my BFF and I. We loved it there so much, we quit our jobs the day we got back to move there...lol. My plan was to go back to school to become a Massage Therapist but while I was in school, I met my now FI and moved to his town instead My BFF moved there and lived on the Ocean Maya resort when she moved there 5 years ago. She now has built a house and opened her own business P.S. She's never coming back to Canada...hahaha.
Have you been to the Mayan before now? It's amazing!! The last time I went was in 2008 to visit BFF; in August. The average temp while I was there was 110 degrees (with humidity). Personally, I love that heat so for me it was a dream. Not so much so for wedding guests I would imagine. It doesn't tend to rain that much during our summer months. Rainy months are from August to October/beginning of November. It's also hurricane season during that time but they don't see much of those. There was a hurricane watch when I was there (which of course made me nervous) but it changed course long before it hit shore. It is quit humid during those times, but can also be cool at night. If you pick your date between June and beginning of August, I'm sure you'll not only love it, but your guests will appreciate the decrease in humid temps.
I'm sure whatever you choose will be amazing. Can't wait to hear about your upcoming trip! Oh and if any of your guests are nervous about the safety of Mexico, there a great map post on the forum about how safe it is in that area.

Has anyone gotten married in the Mayan Riviera in the summer time? I'm nervous about humidity for outdoor receptions and rain!!
We're looking at:
Dreams Riviera Cancun - top pick!!
Ocean Coral & Turquesa - Where we're staying
Gran Caribe Cancun - Has a GORGEOUSSS Catholic Chapel, where we wouldn't do a Catholic service at the other places.
Have any of you gotten married at or been to one of these places?
Any and all advice is welcome! I am so happy!
