Oh also here are a few of the resorts i was looking into

 

Jamacia

 

Iberostar
Riu
Secret

 

Mexico

 

Royal
Dreams
Barcelo Maya
Riu Palace

Hi breetuti2,

 

Congrats on your engagement and of course choosing a Destination Wedding!

I was married in the Mayan Riviera and it was beautiful, we chose the Now Jade Riviera Cancun and it is a fantastic resort, we also just returned from another vacation a couple of months ago we loved it so much.

When it comes to choosing your resort it comes down to a lot of different aspects such as the budget for your guests, what style of resort you are looking for, is your preferred wedding date available etc.

The Mayan Riviera is rated #1 Destination Wedding spot and it offers amazing prices and high quality resorts so that would be my recommendation.

 

All the Best : )

Do you plan to have a legal wedding? The requirements are the worst in Mexico. I'm getting married at the royal playa del Carmen in Mexico but I plan to do the paperwork in the US before going and have a symbolic ceremony there. Congrats!!

Have you considered the west coast of Mexico? Puerto Vallarta or Punta de MIta area? Does it have to be a resort? Most brides now are going in the private wedding venue direction and of course stay at the resort but have the wedding in a separate venue.  www.martoca.com can help you with your planning advice.

I have a friend who is a wedding planner in the caribbean and can help you as well. If you like I will tell her to email you.

Happy planning.

Jimmy
