    Hello to all the lovely brides and brides-to-be (like me)! 


    I just got engaged a couple months ago, and we've just decided to venture off to Mexico for our wedding! I couldn't be happier, yet so confused and overwhelmed at the same time! 


    We have probably around 30 people attending (and some little ones), so we are looking for a family-oriented, all-inclusive, that is also fun and exciting for the younger guests. 


    I am torn between Playa Del Carmen (The Iberostar Grand is a contender, but not the one I don't think) and Cancun (specifically Moon Palace and Now Sapphire are contenders, but I think there might be better??). 


    My biggest worry is having random people hanging around the ceremony and in the background of my pictures. I want the event to be somewhat private, yet outside in nature. I am looking for a resort with a separate area for weddings. I would love a dance floor on the beach, and perhaps a beach bonfire? ;-) How amazing? 


    If anyone has been researching, and has come across any all-inclusive resorts that offer such, can you please share? :-D 


    Also, if you have any experiences at the resorts mentioned above, I'd love to hear!


    Any tips would be greatly appreciated! 


    Thanks in advance and happy Weddings!!! :-)

    Congrats on your engagement and wedding planning, I would recommend NOW JAde which is an excellent resort. If you want privacy, that will be a little hard considering there really isn't much privacy with a destination wedding. But if privacy is what you are aiming for you could stay at a great all inclusive resort and have your wedding at an off resort venue such as Blue Venado.


    Happy Planning!!!!

      We are getting married at Now Jade on May 4th. I've done a lot of research prior to booking the resort and i am quite happy with my choice. You should check it out.

            From what I have read, NOW Jade has better reviews.  Their wedding packages are also much better from what I remember.  Happy planning!
