      Congratulations and welcome to the forum. We're slightly in the same boat as you are - with the idea of just the two of us. There are so many choices, especially at the resorts. Many have a free package and even though it may contain extras that you don't need all you have to do is inform them and they take away what you don't want and it's much cheaper. I know a lot of people that do this and it worked out well for them. There is also the option of doing a Mayan Symbolic wedding on a private beach. Please let me know if you need any links and/or references and I'll be happy to private message them to you.

        Hi there,
        We're looking at similar options, an intimate wedding at an AI. At the moment it's likely it'll just be us and my sister and her partner. It's a long way for friends/family to travel and we'd like to watch costs too. Good luck with your planning.

        J :)

            Thanks for everyone replied!

            Yours Truly -- I have done some research and from what I could tell most resorts only offer "free" packages if you book at least 5 rooms or upgrade to a Honeymoon Suite. I am still looking for a resort that would be more flexible in their package contents/prices, so if you have any suggestions, let me know! I also contacted a TA, so I'm curious what they will find.

            Sstotz -- that's a beautiful dress! Funny, I just got a dress from JCrew on their great sale (ends today, I believe), it's Sophia Long and it was $125 (now only $99!) Women's dresses - weddings & parties - Silk tricotine Sophia long dress - J.Crew
            Great minds think alike :)

            AprilandPatrick -- thanks for the info. I contacted Majestic Colonial in DR to ask if they can be flexible in their packages and make it cheaper if I don't need some of the stuff they include, but they said 'NO'. I guess it doesn't hurt to contact more resorts. I just thought they'd all be like that. Do you know of any specific ones that can cater to your needs?

            And yes, please send me any info you have on symbolic ceremonies or anything else that you think might help out my situation. Thanks so much in advance!!

            Jteam -- Congratulations! Do you know where you are going yet?

            Thanks again everyone for your responses!
