Thanks for letting me know about this thread ChocoTaco7568!
Awesome to see so many Cancun & Riviera Maya Brides also! You ladies are lucky your resorts have allowed you to secure the 2012 packages for May 2013. That's the biggest piece I'm worried about because we're trying to get Memorial Day Weekend to alleviate the amount of days our guest will have to take off but our resort says they won't have 2013 packages until mid May. I guess that's just around the corner but I just want this huge weight lifted off my shoulders.
Here's my completed checklist so far:
Venue (chosen, not confirmed)
Currently working on:
STD & Invites
WC? (Do you ladies have a WC or are you just using the WC from the resort?)
TA? (Are you ladies using one or are you letting your guests find their own packages/airfare/room rates?)
Extra Decor Vendor (lounge furniture, ceremony backdrop, chivari chairs, flowers, etc since I'm not too crazy about the typical wedding decor at our resort)
oh boy...i feel like my list of immediate tasks just grew. Luckily my FI has been 110% supportive and actually doing most of the coordination as he has a flexible job being his own boss.

I know that TauruSmith, Bride81 and I are all having our weddings at various AM All-inclusive resorts in the Riviera Maya which might be why weâ€™re able to have room rates secured and everything booked. My wedding has been reserved since January and I signed my contract for group rates and my room block in March (all of which are based on 2012 rates). The only unknown is airfare since flights wonâ€™t be published until June. And since I have people flying in from 5 different states I wasnâ€™t trying to get a packaged flight/accomodations deal.
