Hi! If you're having about 50 guests, I would highly suggest working with a TA!! They really help to keep everyone organized and you don't have to do any of the arranging for your guests (which I predict being a nightmare).
The rate we got from our TA was about the same... For example, our rate through TA for the GBP Akumal is $1758 (incl taxes) for 1 week in Jan '14. Expedia does not sell Akumal, but Tulum rates for the same week right now are $1781. So really there is not much price difference, and we get a free trip for every 16th person from Air Transat!! Other carriers offer the same sort of incentive deals when you do group bookings. But honestly, just to relieve the headache of trying to organize 50 people alone, I would recommend a TA.
Hope this helps!

The majority of our group lives in Regina, but our TA has also made arrangements for those flying out from Winnipeg and Calgary too. Also, some are doing 1 wk air & land, where others (including us) are doing 2 wks air & 1 wk land, and yet others are doing just 5 days land. So I think they can pretty much do whatever combo your guests want.

We sent out invites way in advance. We decided to forgo the STD's and just sent our invites out last Feb (I believe) with an RSVP date of Oct 1st. In the invite we put a card with our TA's contact info and we just put the date of our wedding. We also set up a wedding website with our TA contact info on it and included the link to the website in the invite. On the website we included lot's of travel info, including the dates we would be travelling.
