    Hi all.

    My partner and I are aiming to do this crazy thing in the Yucatan in June 2008. After I emailed one place and heard that they were totally booked up through June, I realized I'd better get our collective butts in gear.

    Here's what we're thinking:
    June 21, 2008 (summer solstice...we like the symbolism of that)
    In or near Akumal, about 20 minutes south of Playa del Carmen.

    That's all we know so far!

        Congrats!

        When I first started planning I wanted Cozumel and when I started calling resorts (about 8 months ahead of time, all weekends were booked). Actually when I decided to change it over to PV, the resort we are getting married at had not weekend weddings available until late November. So, we are getting married on a Monday. Make your reservations with the hotel/resort as soon as possible and everything else will fall into place. Hope we can help you out!

                Yeah, we learned the hard way too that we had to hustle just to get our resort booked but once that's done, everything else gets to be more fun and bit less stressful. Welcome to the forum!

                  Thanks! That's pretty much what I'm counting on. What's most important to us is making sure that we find a good place (or places) for our guests to stay, as we're looking at this as a group vacation that's more about spending quality time with our family and best friends than a ceremony that'll be over in an hour. =) I think that's what we like most about the destination wedding idea...that and the fact that it's an equal distance for all of our friends and family (in NY, PA, and CA). No one can accuse us of favoritism!

                    Yay! Someone else with my date! We were engaged June 21, 2007 & are getting married June 21, 2008. I also think it's cool that its summer solstice.

                    Originally I was looking at Akumal, but ended up finding a hotel that fit what I wanted in Puerto Aventuras (between Akumal & PDC).

                    I don't think you will have a problem finding a place. Some book up far in advance, but others can be booked a few month prior. You'll find the forum really useful for getting started planning.
