Hi ladies! congrats to both of you!! If you haven't already, I'd highly suggest a travel agent to help you narrow down your resort choices and find the one that is perfect for you - budget, number of guests, amenities, etc. The ladies at Wright Travel can help you with this if you don't have a TA yet.
There are soooo many fantastic resorts in Cancun and along the RM cooridor. And they all offer different packages and price points. It's really a matter of prioritizing what you want in a resort.
When I started my search, I built an excel spreadsheet to compare the resorts (# of rooms, distance from airports, # of restaurants, bars, pools, and other facilities, and the room rack rates that I pulled from their websites). then I added their wedding packages to compare what's included in the "free", what's buy-up, what flowers are included, spa services, private events, etc. I also compared the current incentive packages - how many rooms/room nights do you need to get a bride/groom stay free credit or private event credit - things like that.
good luck with your search, and happy planning!!

Thanks for the help ladies and gents!
