    We just recently got engaged in Tulum, Mexico.  We will be planning a wedding for April 2012, in the Riviera Maya.  I've been lurking on this site and have already learned so much! Thank you!!

        I've always thought I wanted to get married at Secrets Maroma.  However I really loved Tulum.  We've been going to Playa del Carmen for the last three years.  I've emailed multiple places, only one reply.  I wish I could just decide on a place already.  But it has only been less then a week! I'm just soo excited and happy right now.  I swear all I do on my free time is check out BDW !

            Deciding the place is the most difficult part. This might help a bit:


            is a good deal..


            Happy planning and good luck!

                We were thinking Tulum, but my fiancĀ© is worried about not having AC for our guests. I hoping for Secrets Maroma, but I'm open for others in Playa del Carmen.

                Congrats on your engagement! For us picking the resort was the absolute hardest part.  We went back and forth between resorts and ultimately it came down to cost for us.  We really wanted to get married at Secrets Maroma, it looks beautiful, but they did not have any available wedding dates the week we wanted to get married.  I already told my FI that someday I will go there haha!  Good luck with your decision!

                  So exciting! CONGRATS!!! 


                  If you are looking in the Riviera Maya area you should definitely check out the Del Sol Wiki. There are crazy amounts of slide shows of weddings in the different areas around the Riviera Maya! This was really helpful in choosing a resort for me. I spent HOURS looking at all the amazing pictures...I got a little addicted! Haha! 


                  This place is awesome along with all the sweet people, and you will have lots of help and support from all the wonderful people on here. :)


                  Happy Planning!!
