Hi all!  Planning a wedding, rather local or destination seems to be a pain in the butt!  I have decided on a destination wedding in Mexico or Jamaica in October.  I know its not the best time due to rainy season but I'm just going to pray for sunshine.  I have a list of over 10 locations and I have been obsessing over the reviews and pictures and trying to make sure pricing will be right for all of my guests.  Phew!  Too much pressure.  I am really leaning towards a new property called the Royalton Riviera Cancun.  Fingers crossed, all will go well.  Thanks for letting me vent.

Welcome and congrats! I picked a new resort as well and I'm a little nervous but I'm confident that everything well turn out well.  This resort looks wonderful!!! If you haven't already done so, I would recommend finding a travel agent to help you with planning.  Good luck!!! :)

The only bad thing about picker a newer resort, is it is a lot harder to find info from previous brides! Seriously, this site is a life saver thanks to previous brides!

      Hi Tammy, we booked our wedding at the Royalton Cancun for September 2015. Do you have any information regarding how the construction is going. Is the resort going to be open on schedule for December as predicted? You mentioned that you have a number of weddings booked there, do you know how many weddings they would approx have per day onsite? I have so many questions and can't wait to get the information on the weddings. Do you have anymore insider information on the ceremony and reception venues lol. I might just have to be patient until November/December!
