    Ok after months of looking and negotiating with my FI, we finally agreed on a resort, Palladium White Sands. Our travel agent called there yesterday and found out they are booked for all the dates in Nov we had chosen.

    So now I am trying to find a location outside the resort that is economical. I know in other threads someone recommended Al Celio but this is out of our price range ($ 6,599.00). Does anyone have any other suggestions?

      Well we are kind of limited on dates because of FI's job (has to be on a Friday or Saturday) and the holidays that fall in November (Day of the Dead and Thanksgiving). Basically we have 4 dates to choose from November 9,10,16,or 17th... so of course with the days being Friday and Saturday they are booked. From what my TA said they only have 1 wedding coordinator for the resorts and all 4 resorts share wedding locations.

      i thought they could book at the different resorts but just stagger the time...i think they have more than 1 event a day for all 4 resorts.

      it will be really ahrd to get a weekend day for nov. alot of them seem to be pretty booked. what other resorts are you interested in?

        we stayed at the Palladium Kantenah... but had our wedding at the Al Cielo Hotel... how about having your wedding in Playa Del Carmen and having the dinner in one of the restaurants there... like Yaxche Maya Cuisine Restaurant, or Ajua Maya

            Sorry its taken me so long to respond... my grandmother is in the hospital so I have been out of town for several days.

            Our other resort choices were Iberostar (which I wasnt thrilled with), EDR (which was a little over our budget), and Dreams Tulum (Not the kind of resort my FI wanted). My FI wants a resort that has buildings with a max of 10 rooms in each.

            My TA said he was going to contact Lomas Travel's wedding department and see if there are any available sites for those dates. I also asked him about Xcaret Ecological park and he is going to contact them also for availablility but Im not sure where else to look if these options do not work out. Im hoping to hear back from him today.

              I may have a solution for you. We are getting married on Maroma Beach, which is about 20 minutes south of Cancun. The beach we are getting married on is owned partly by Lomas Travel, and partly by Karisma Hotels. The beach is pretty much private, and you can stay at any hotel and still get married on this beach. If you go to Lomas Travel Cancun Online Reservations for Tours Transfers and hotels in Cancun you can see a lot of the stuff they do. If you go to my website at Wedding Websites - Kristina and Brian, click on Ceremony, there is a photo of what the wedding site would look like. Let me know if you want more info!
