    Hi Everyone,


    I'm new to the site and I am very excited to hear everyone's opinions and thoughts. FI and I got engaged in October at the Secrets Maroma, which I must say is really nice and exudes romance. The food was excellent.


    The only thing we have decided on is a destination wedding, as we would like to have a smallish wedding (50 people or less) and we are thinking Oct or Nov of 2013. We are looking for somewhere warm with direct flights from Vancouver (Mexico, Jamaica, Costa Rica), affordable for the guests, and child friendly, an all inclusive resort that has somewhere a little more private for the ceremony. The privacy for the ceremony comes from the fact I watched 3 weddings while at SM, as the weddings are right beside the beach loungers. I also want the resort to have great food and a great beach. I don't know if this even exists. I am really hoping that it does, as I ideally would like to have everything in one location (i.e., stay at an all-inclusive resort, and have the ceremony and reception at the same place).


    Alternatively I have looked into the Xcarat, but it seems maybe a little too expensive.


    I have also looked into Al Cielo, as we went there for the day a few years ago and both the food and beach are amazing, but then I need to find an all-inclusive resort near Al Cielo. But ideally, I would love to find an all-inclusive resort that fits my criteria.


    In advance, thank you very much for your suggestions and opinions and thanks for having me on the forum.
