Okay! Where to start. I'm being a rebel, and posting this a week after my wedding, instead of the week before - but now my ducks are all in a row.
The first thing we did was pick a location. Due to the nature of the group of people we assumed would come, we wanted somewhere "easy and safe" (we didn't have many world travelers, and for many this was their first trip anywhere) and somewhere accessible, as we had people coming from multiple locations in Canada and the U.S.
We decided on the Mayan Riviera (we had been to Mexico before and loved it) and after much ridiculous research and sleepless nights we decided on the Barcelo Maya Palace. It was big enough that we felt people could have their own vacations if they wanted, and look really nice.
It was gorgeous, and a good choice for a destination wedding.
