    Hello,
    Im Shannon from NY, I am new to the forum. I am planning a wedding for July 2008. I am looking in the cancun area...I need an affordable resort for my guests, yet one that will be absolutelty perfect for me...any suggestions. I have been researching, came up with the Occidental Xcaret....I want a beach wedding and beach reception of about 75 people....What about the Grand Palladium in the Riviera? These are the areas I am looking at. I love the moon palace, but its a bit to pricey for my guets....man this is difficult, any advice would be great!

    hi shannon,

    welcome to the forum...i see jackie has filled you in on info on the xcaret...and valerie on occidental.

    the grand palladium is also a great choice...i like the colonial or whitesand but they also have great adult areas...

    they also have good prices...let me see if i have any pics.

      Hi Shannon welcome to the forum. Cancun is a great area and they have a lot of affordable resorts. Off the top of my head I know the Oxcidentals are great and nice places to have a wedding. I am planning to have mine in Cabo so I don't know much info about Cancun but there are tons of Cancun brides here who will be able to help you. What part of NY are you from? (I'm from NY too)

        Welcome... prcing is so important for both you and your guests. The good thing is you've picked a destination that is relatively easy to get to and rather affordable to fly to. Remember no matter what resort you select, how early you send out STD some people will complain and not be able to afford the cost.

        Good luck

                I'm pretty new the forum as well. I'm alos tring to go the the Cancun area. I was told to look at the Occidental Xcaret, Grand Palladium and Moon Palace. I was thinking about Moon Palace since my Dad said it was great. I still don't have an idea on what they cost. What were the prices you were quoted (if you don't mind me asking). I'm working with a lady on destinationweddings.com and she still hasn't told me any prices! I'm starting to get a little worried. I'm thinking about getting married Oct-Nov 2007. Thanks

                  Not to be a shameless promotion whore but Tammy (the host) is great to work with. If you girls aren't happy with your travel agent you should def speak to Tammy b/c she has lots of knowledge, gets back to you quickly, and being recently married in a destination wedding herself, knows exactly what you are looking for. Just a thought.
