Am I crazy?

The Riu resorts fitted our budget quite well - I really wanted Dreams, but when it came down to it, I was happy with Riu to save everyone quite a bit of cash! I believe the travel agent got a group rate through Sunquest.

I mean, as long as we get there, and our parents get there...then we're fine. He wants tons of people to go, while I could care less if anyone comes (as long as our parents come). so I'm looking endlessly at these stupid resort books trying to find a resort that he'd be happy with. I mean, it's our *wedding* not a random trip that we want the best deal on. I don't want to have my wedding at a hole-in-the-wall resort just to save a couple hundred dollars. It was his idea for the destination wedding, and he sold me on the idea. Help me out girls...Am I crazy?
Anyways, just wanted to suggest, we would go there ourselves had we not already went there once (for one of our good friends weddings). We went to Riu Jalisco in Puerta Vallarta, and although the water is not as nice as Cancun, this place, for the price, was probably the best value I've ever had on vacation. It was 1632 per person, in CDN $. So anyways, due your dilligence and check it out if you want, I really loved it and everything about the wedding was top notch too. The Gazebo is not anywhere near the beach (well it is within walking distance but not right beside it or anything) so you don't have crowds watching you. Anyways, our whole party of 38 really enjoyed it. The disco SUCKS though! haha

And yes, 2200 is a lot, but it really depends on you and your friends' situation. I'm in my late 20's and so are my friends, and we coudldn't afford that...

I think you should narrow your top 2 or 3 resorts down to show your fiance for where you two will be staying and have different price options to send to your family & friends...that's what me and my FH are doing, staying where we want to stay and then having a couple different price options from the cheapest to middle of the road pricing and also prices of where we are staying for anyone who may want to be where we're at. This way it gives our invited guests a range of options that they can seriously look at and determine if they can make it or not. Good luck in your planning and I'm thinking good thoughts for you!! ~Lea S.
