    So....we are in the beginning stages of planning a destination wedding and are finding it hard to find good info. If anyone has any suggestions or recommendations that would be incredible. We are planning to have around 60-70 people attend. Has to be kid friendly. We were hoping for something that wasn't too cookie cutter. We are open to the big all inclusives but would love to hear about other experiences as well. We haven't narrowed down a location so Mexico, Dom Republic, Cuba.... Let's hear about them!

     

    Thank you all for your time  ;)

      I'm getting married at Secrets Maroma Beach (which is adults only)  in the Riviera Maya , Mexico BUT have been to the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo resort twice over the past two years.  We originally wanted to hold our wedding there but they were all booked up for our time frame.   The Iberostar resorts in the Rivera Maya are amazing and family friendly! The cool thing about the properties is that there are 5 hotels in one large area and you can visit, swim, and dine at almost all of them! and they're beautiful!!!!  There is a lazy river, amazing pools-including a wave pool, gorgeous beach, and even a fun water area for the kids.  There is also the Iberostar Paraiso Grand hotel which is an adults only property if you want to escape for a few days after your wedding to be "alone."   I definitely recommend checking the Iberostar out if you're looking for a family friendly resort!  Good luck! http://www.iberostar...r-paraiso-lindo

            Beach Palace, Cancun! :)

            Palace Resorts are great for weddings and you can customize it how you want (which will take away that cookie cutter feel). We aren't having our wedding right on the beach.. we're actually having it on the sky deck.

            Ultimately we ended up with Cuba to better fit guest budgets but if that's not an issue I would consider Jamaica.

             

            The food is supposed to be phenomenal and the experience amazing! I had a friend who got married there and he was raving about how great it was. If you can find something there within your budget it's sure to be incredible.
