    I already had my DW in Aruba, but I am curious to know which 3 resorts made your cut. Do you mind sharing?

From there we got a list of 8 or 9 resorts which we priced and checked that their wedding packages included everything we wanted. Only three met all our criteria, much easier to make a decision at that point :) Good luck!

      We got the Iberostar in Jamaica (the one we chose), the Grand Palladium in the Mayan Riviera and Ocean Coral also in the Mayan. There were many others that qualified with the good food and nice beach but these three came in under 1700 Canadian for a week long stay and had flexible wedding packages.

        Congratulations and Welcome. I started by reading as many reviews as I could get my hands on. We settled on Mexico and that's about it for now. You have plenty of time so read lots of reviews (with a grain of salt) and go with the one that feels right.
