    Hello everyone!

    My fiance and I have been engaged since July, and have just started planning! We have always wanted to do a destination wedding and had originally planned on getting married in Punta Cana, DR. However, we decided that we want to try and keep this wedding as affordable as possible for our guests, so we have narrowed down our wedding location to the Cancun/Riviera Maya area in Mexico. Last year, we stayed at Now Jade, which was phenomenal. The rooms and resort were gorgeous and the food was amazing... the beach was beautiful... we had a fantastic time. We went to a travel agent about a month ago and requested a quote for Now Sapphire, the sister resort to Now Jade, seeing as we know the kind of quality we want. The TA told us that it might be a bit too pricey for our guests so she recommended the Gran Bahia Principe Coba/Tulum/Akumal. That resort sounds nice, but just doesn't seem to measure up to the Now Resorts. Now, my fiance and I are thinking we need to do more research into resorts and finding other ones we like, but everytime we start looking we get so overwhelmed! 

     

    How do you choose a resort when there are hundreds? Any suggestions for resorts? How did you decide on a resort???

     

    Thanks for taking the time!

      Well you have a benchmark and that's good.  There are a lot of great resorts in that area.  I would suggest scouring reviews and photos and seeing what comes close to the Now experience you had. 

       

      Here is a link to RM reviews:

      And this thread may help:

       

      How do i choose the right resort?

       

      Good luck!

            Welcome! If you are still interested in the Gran Bahia Principe, here are a few shots from a recent wedding I did there.  I love the very natural, raw nature feel of the GBP.  There are some beautiful locations for pictures and the beach ceremony is very private.  If you want to get a feel for different resorts, Beach wedding at the Gran Bahia Principe, Riviera Maya, Mexico.
