    We are getting married just the two of us at one and only palmilla. When you look at the room rate its def not cheap but we felt the package they have is reasonable, it includes :

    *Accommodation for four nights in selected room type*Bottle of chilled champagne upon arrival*Nightly cocktail snacks*Daily breakfast for two*Dinner on two of the four nights, including a romantic candlelit setting on the beach and ocean front dinner at Agua*Beach Ceremony with Minister service (conducted in English) *Share a moment of bliss and experience the Pathway to Love for two: includes couples yoga to relax as one, Spa cuisine and a 150 minute Exotic Coconut Rub & Milk Ritual (exfoliation and wrap, face and body massage) and Aroma Therapy Bath for two in our private couples spa villa*Wedding Day Delight for the bride including: 60 minute Soothing Wellness Massage, One&Only Ritual for hands and feet, bridal hair-styling and make up application*Private beach cove experience for one full day, complete with floating day bed and lunch for two*Private roundtrip airport transfers in Hummer H2*Departure Gift

    I think its great when its just all about you two. Best of luck to you.

      Check out Le Blanc in Cancun. Beautiful hotel - #2 on TripAdvisor - and they have a free package. Good luck!

        thanks for the support everyone! there are definately some drawbacks to going just us, and some disapointed family, but in the end, we are really excited! we can do what we want and don't have to worry about anyone else

          That's what my wife and I did, just the two of us. We also had our wedding at ERC (Excellence Riviera Cancun) and it was definitely worth it. I can't say enough about the staff and the whole experience.

              Hi

              We are going on our first holiday to Mexico in May and I have been looking at maybe also taking the plunge and getting married whilst out there. We would do a legal ceremony at home first and then have a renewal of vows type ceremony in Mexico.. we are looking at booking catalonia riviera maya for our holiday anyway and I see they do a package for $399 which would suit us too.. Just one question though about after the ceremony for those that did it just the two of you.. Did you have a meal in one of the hotels normal restaurant or were you able to have an area sectioned off for just the two of you?!?! I like the idea of having something private for our wedding night!

              Thanks

              Missyl

                I feel the same way as you however I'm not changing my day for anyone....if they dont like it then don't worry they will get over it once they accept thats whats gonna happen. I am not interested at all in a boring traditional church wedding and reception in some boring hall or something at all......so if it is just the two of us which it looks like thats the way its going to be then we will do that and have a reception for us when we get back. I feel weird about how I have no idea who is going to be our witnesses LOL and a few other things like I see these big huge wedding parties in alot of pics here and I wonder how ours will go? My guess is that we will have a beautiful romantic dinner after our wedding and then enjoy the night dancing and having a good time and leaving whenever we feel like it and not worrying that someone is upset because I havent spent enough time with these guests or these guests LOL .....arrrggghhhh
                I love thinking about us getting married on the beach or close to it weather depending and in such a beautiful tropical setting without all the hastle of decorating some stinky hall LOL

                Good luck

                  Hola Tara - congrats and good for you! It really IS about the 2 of you, when it comes down to it. I have enough drama in my own family and it's one of the reasons we are pretty much doing the same. Are you set on Dreams? I can't remember if they have pkgs. but I know Aventura Palace (Palace Resorts) has a free pkg and I believe they are in the same vicinity.
                  There's plenty more info from other posts but let me know if I can be of any help!
