    Hi all!!! Me and my other half are getting married in 2014! Looking into Mexico or Antigua! Any recommendations? We really want the ceremony on the beach and will probably have around 15 people come with us (friends, family etc...) Literally have no idea where to start so any tips or help would be much appreciated!!! X

              Hello,

               

              I am also getting married in 2014, probably in August. We are looking at Cancun or Riviera Maya. I was told by my destination wedding advisor that Cancun's beaches are better when compared to Riviera Mayans. I am looking at Beach Palace and Moon Palace but have not yet been able to decide. 

              Congrats!!!

               

               

              Liz

                Hi, We've been looking at the dreams and secrets resorts in Mexico! There's so much to choose from! I'd really prefer an adults only hotel as there are no children coming. There's so much choice it's hard to narrow it down! X

                  Sorry, I pressed the wrong button lol but I believe the following are adults only. I believe the one in Cancun is not All-Inclusive, but the others in Riviera Maya are. Also, I was quoted $1066 p/p on the Dorado Resorts and around $1024 for Azul

                   

                   


                  • CANCUN
                    • Le Blanc Spa Resort

                   

                   

                  • RIVIERA MAYA
                    • El Dorado Maroma
                    • El Dorado Seaside
                    • El Dorado Casita Royale
                    • Azul Villa Esmeralda

                   

                  Hope this helps,

                   

                  Liz.

                  Hi Carla - congrats!!!

                   

                  The first thing is to figure out where - Mexico vs. Antigua. Both locations are gorgeous!!

                   

                  I don't know much about Antigua, other than it's amazing, so I'm not much help. But Mexico has a bunch of lovely adults-only all inclusive locations. We chose El Dorado Royale for our wedding, and it was just a dream.

                   

                  If you don't have one yet, I'd highly recommend working with a travel agent, regardless of your group's size. It'll make your planning much easier, especially if they are destination wedding specialists - they know the ins and outs of the resorts and the event planning aspect.

                   

                  If I can answer any questions, please feel free to ask!
