Affording a destination wedding

Also, Dreams does not charge for kids if there are two adults in the room.
Dang, you are in Denver. I know there are not any beaches close by (my fam is from there too).
I would say if you really want a beach wedding, have a long engagement to prepare people. Most TA's offer payment plans. Then at the resort (at least Dreams, Tulum) you can get the complimentary wedding and keep it simple.
Good luck to you!

This was a major concern for us. We did a couple of things.
1) We booked early. The prices were significantly lower (prices have since gone up at our 5 star resort by about 900$). Also, this allowed people to plan around the trip.
2) We looked into a resort that had multiple prices ranges (we decided not to, but did go with a resort where there were different price points depending on room type (swim up, luxury...)
3) A lot of packages/hotels, offer discounts like " every 11th person free". We decided to pool the 5 free trips, and offer either a significant discount to specific people we knew couldn't afford to come, or reduce the price for everybody.
4) We also decided that since it would work out cheaper for us to do the destination wedding, we could use the extra money we anticipated spending, to help out the couple of people that wouldn't have been able to make it otherwise.
Hope that helps!!
