    Hi all...I just got engaged on New Years Day and I'm so excited/stressed in wedding planning!  My fiance and I would love a destination wedding and were looking into Cancun/Riviera Maya.  We both have big families and both have 8 groomsmen and bridesmaids, so thinking we'll have about 100 guests attending, including children.  I spoke to my wedding specialist today and she recommends Azul Fives and I have been looking at Moon Palace.  

     

    Any suggestions/recommendations would be greatly appreciated! :)

     

    Thanks!

     

    - Veronica

    Congrats and welcome to the site! Both of those suggestions are good ones in terms of resorts and both have a ton of information here. Definitely look through the forums for the resorts and read what past brides have had to say. I can almost guarantee that any questions you have, someone else has asked them and the answers are likely here! lol

     

    Take a look through the resort reviews too. Everyone is different in terms of what they want, or what they expect but the resort reviews will give you an idea.

     

    Definitely a great travel agent is a must as well. Not sure where you are but if the US, there is a fantastic TA affiliated with this site that are DW specialists - Wright Travel. If in Canada, there are different agents that the ladies have recommended.

    Good luck!


    I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

    Congrats on the engagement!!  We're doing Mexico as well, likely the Puerto/Nuevo Vallarta area, but there seems to be quite a few people going to Riviera Maya so I'm sure you'll find tons of helpful advice.  Happy planning!
