    My sister (with my help!) is planning an April 2012 wedding in the Riviera Maya, and the first step of course is choosing the site.  We are looking for a resort with the following criteria: all inclusive, family friendly (but still classy,) beautiful beach (they want the ceremony and possibly reception to be on the beach) and not too far from airport.  They don't want a smal boutique hotel, but a regular size resort. Any opinions and suggestions you may have will be greatly appreciated!  She is trying to weigh the pros and cons of the Dreams resorts, but is open to other resorts as well. Thank you!

      Try the BDW Travel Agents (Tammy the host is the proprietor). I believe they are the Wright Travel Agency or PM Tammy and she'll assign someone to you. All the best!

        Hi there,


        Congratulations,  many of the brides I have photographed have been very pleased with the Dreams resorts here in the Mayan Riviera.  They seem to meet all your criteria depending on which one you choose.  As well the forum is filled with lots of reviews etc for most resorts in the area.  There are a lot that fit what your looking for.   As well they just completed a huge over pass project in Playa del Carmen and Puerto Morales that cuts down a lot of driving time in the south end if your concerned about time from the airport.   


        Warmest wishes,

            I am still deciding on a Destination vs. a traditional wedding in Philadelphia.  However if we do a destination we are going to have it in the Riviera Maya.  I have traveled many times to Mexico and other destinations in the Caribbean and I have nothing but amazing things to say about Dreams.  My fiance and I stayed at the Dreams in Cancun and at that point I hated all inclusive resorts because of the quality of food, restrictions on restaurants, and many other reasons.  However after staying there it turned my thoughts around.  My fiance and I are food snobs, for lack of a better term, and the food their was amazing and the staff was great.  I would definitely recommend any of the Dreams resorts or Secrets resorts.  A friend of mine attended a wedding at the Maroma Seacrets and the loved it there as well. If we do a destination wedding I will only consider Dreams or Seacrets.


            Also, they have a lot of different activites throughout the night and day to keep your guests entertained.  Every few nights they had a dinner and show on the beach. 


            Hope this helps a bit.
