I celebrated my 21st (30th) birthday in Mexico, which may sound relaxing but it was really a ton of work. I had to try ALL of the margaritas and food at the resorts we visited in order to be totally sure that we were selecting the right venue for our wedding in March. 

7 days, nine thousand pina coladas, a truckload of ceviche, eight games of rummy (I won!), three bottles of sunscreen and one serious tan to kick off my thirties later, we have arrived at a decision that I am so very, very confident will be a dream vacation for our friends and family come March 2015. 

Here's some of my favorite photos of the resort, El Dorado Royale and Generations Riviera Maya. They're sister resorts, which will be the perfect setup for our guests with an adults-only option and a family friendly resort, too. It's the most beautiful place I've ever seen and I cannot wait to walk down the aisle (pier!) with mi amor just 8 months from now.
