There is also another thread about hidden fees with Travel Agents, Planners, and hotels.
Hopefully someone can source the threads for you.
Anyways, you'll find a lot of help and information on this site. Good luck!

So basically, I would say set a budget and then figure out the cost of staying there on the high end. If it's still within your budget... then you've found your resort. If it's not, then there are plenty of resorts in the Playa area.

First thing...you need to set a budget, and, you really have to stick to it. That has been hard for us, but if we don't do it, things would just get WAY out of control! There was a point where we just did not think we would be able to afford doing even a destination wedding...but...with some perseverance, LOTS of research, and reality checks here and there (do we REALLY need this or that?)...its all coming together and then some. To give you an idea of what we're spending, we are NOT paying for our guests to go, they are paying their packages themselves. Including our flights/hotel and all the wedding trimmings (reception extras, actual wedding package, minister, blah, blah, blah) we'll spend about $10,000. I would say this includes our OOT bags that we are doing for each of our 10 guests, a two hour catamaran charter for our Thank You Welcome thingy, my MOH dress, all the guys suits (4), and the Luxury Package.
There is an awesome thread in the Riviera Maya section of the Forum...http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t17108
If you take the time to read through it all (and its a lot), so many of your questions will be answered, and most of us have posted costs affiliated with "extras", policy expectations, etc. The biggest thing with the Royal right now, is they have posted what their rates for 2009 are GOING to be...so my first suggestion to you is...don't delay. Book sooner than later to secure the rates of today, before you get dinged with the increases. If you have to cancel or whatever later, fine...but for now, just make sure you have an agreement or something, so you can secure those prices. Go from there.
You can always PM me or the other girls, or post in that thread I mentioned, as we're pretty religious about checking in!
