    So after pretty much planning every detail of our big, extravagant $35,000 (fall 2012) wedding, the drama with guest lists, finances, MONSTER-in-law, etc. was putting a strain on my FI & I's soon to be marriage. So much so, that we've decided to cancel everything and plan an intimate "elopment" in MEXICO this summer. Thank God we were able to get our deposits back for almost everything.

    I've done a little research and found a few nice-looking resorts in Mexico to have our wedding:

    1. Excellence Playa Mujeres
    2. Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun
    3. Dreams Riviera Cancun Resorts & Spa
    4. Now Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa
    5. Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe
    6. Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort
    7. Valentin Imperial Maya

    Has anyone been to any of these resorts? 
    Does anyone of any other AMAZING resort in Mexico for our wedding/honeymoon?
    How good are the resort wedding coordinators?

    Wishlist for Wedding/Resort:

    • bamboo canopy w/ drapes 
    • intimate beach ceremony location
    • intimate evening wedding dinner (for two)
    • recently renovated/fairly new
    • fantastic honeymoon suite
    • nice size pool & a pool bar
    • for young adults (not too much kids or retirees)
    • entertainment/nightlife

    I know, a lot of question... Sorry. I'm just freaking out about planning my wedding thousands of miles away. Pretty much have no control until we get there.

      Hi there!

      My fiance Brad & I are getting married in Riviera Maya in mid July.  We are looking at both The Valentine Imperial Maya and The El Dorado Royale.  They are both just breathtaking, and we are having a really hard time deciding!  I have received responses from both wedding coordinators as to what dates they have open for when we want to go.  They were very prompt and very helpful.  So Brad & I both have to work tomorrow and we are still awake trying to decide where the heck we are going so that we can go ahead and book our travel arrangements tomorrow. 


      Do you have your choices narrowed down at all or are you just having a really hard time deciding which ones you like better?

        Hi Jaime,


        Thank you for replying to my post and proving such helpful information. 


        My fiance and I have chosen to get married at the Dreams Riviera Resort & Spa in August 2013. We are inviting approx. 30 of our close family and friends.


        Thanks again for all of your help. I would love to see some photos of how your wedding turned out. :-)
