@MandM2014 - thanks for the tip! I'll be sure to watch this closely as we finalize plans. Sorry to hear you are rethinking a DW in Mexico but totally get your reason for reconsidering. The wedding planning process in general is stressful enough but planning a DW increases that because you have to work around so many things that are beyond your control until you are onsite days before.
For what it's worth (my unsolicited feedback hehe) your guests will have just as much fun if you decide to go the FL route - still getting the tropical climate, beautiful white sandy beaches w/ turquoise water and maybe easier flights for your guests? I went to a couple one, in Marco Island (near Naples, FL) and the other in Miami and had a blast.
Do not let the BDR reunion your spirits! I say follow the destination that checks off all you and DF's "Must Have" boxes! *hug*
