Glad to hear I'm not the only one with these troubles:-) Whichever resort we pick, it seems there is always a problem with: we need single rooms (never realised this was such an issue?), ppl coming 1 week and some for 2 weeks (can only get some hols for 2 weeks?), kids are coming (so no adult only resorts) and then there is the pressure of whether everybody will like it etc its very tricky. I think the Melia hotels have a good reputation and you generally know what you are getting with them, so they are probably a good choice (plus there website is pretty good for wedding info/prices).
We were originally looking at Mexico and the forums there are amazing. It would be so much easier if there was lots of reviews, pics etc to help make the decision easier.
Good luck, keep us updated! :-)
