    Hi Staci! welcome to BDW. Congrats on your engagement. 

     

    There are TONS of resorts and options to choose from. Start with deciding what YOU (and your groom...) want for your wedding/event. Big resort? medium resort? small resort? location (Cancun hotel district, RM, Tulum, etc)? what price range do you want to be in? high rise hotel, or resort feel? 

     

    If you don't have one, I'd highly recommend a travel agent, such as Wright Travel Agency - these ladies KNOW the resorts and have tons of experience with weddings and groups. They can help you narrow down your options, get pricing, and help your guests book. 

     

    Happy Planning!

      Welcome to the forum Staci,and Congrats on your Destination wedding, 

       

      As a wedding planner here in the Riviera Maya, would advise you on the following when it comes to resort:

       

      By asking yourself what your expectations are for your ideal resort such,

      are you looking for an all inclusive?

      must is it be a family friendly or adults only?

      is beach more important to you?

       

       

      When it comes to your wedding location are looking for more private location or a resort?.

       

      Feel free to ask as anything and we will be happy to help

       

      Happy Planning

        Welcome to the forum Staci + Congrats!!! on your upcoming dw :) you're already off to a great start by joining our community, as you can see from the advice you've already rec'd.

         

        Another factor you may consider (if photography is important to you) is whether the resort you're thinking about allows outside vendors, and if so, what they charge.

         

        Wishing you happy planning and that it all works out to be the Most Amazing Wedding Ever!!! Cheers :)

          Hi Staci,

           

          Since you are not getting married until 2014, why not do a scouting trip? Visit Tulum and Playa for the more intimate resorts.

           

          You will definitely find something that works for you.

           

          Best of luck,

          Jennifer
