Congrats on your upcoming wedding!!!
Maroma is often nominated one of the BEST beaches in the world and it's not that far away from the main attractions in the area: Mayan temples, cenotes, zip-lines, horse back riding, etc... You do need to take 20 minute cab ride if you want to go to downtown but if you have beach lovers in your party, they should be fine with that
Playacar Palace on the other hand, is conveniently located within walking distance of the heart of Playa del Carmen and is great venue for small wedding parties. It's also family friendly so the little ones are welcomed here too!!
Here are some slide shows of weddings we've done at both locations to help you visualize your day:
