I dunno but it sounded pretty cool.
The Paradisus Punta Cana in the DR - Which I absolutely fell in love with, too bad the flights from Chicago are pricier than to The RM otherwise we'd be at that hotel. Instead we chose the Paradisus Riviera Cancun - which also has the Royal Service.
But I can imagine that the flights from Canada is what's really killing you.
don't be discouraged, it may take some time but I'm sure you'll find a deal!
Let me know if I can help.

I guess you need to decide if it is really important for you to have a destination wedding and not a local wedding just to please everyone else! This is your day! You shouldn't let anyone influence your planning.......
Just my opionion!!!

$2000 pp does seem kind of high. We had originally looked into a lot of the caribbean islands, antigua, st. lucia, etc. and they were all going to be too much for guests.
So we chose dreams cancun and part of the reason we chose it was the price was more reasonable, I want to say about 1200 pp, for 5 nights. I mean your flight may be slightly more because of where you're coming from, but 1200 is a lot less than 2000. When were you trying to plan for?

i know people say that those who love you will find a way, etc. etc. but realistically, some finances won't allow $2000pp no matter how far they try to stretch their dollars. making an effort to attend a wedding is one thing, breaking the bank to do it is another.
why don't you take into consideration other options, like not having everyone stay at one place, that way those who can't afford a 4 star option don't feel obligated. i gave my guest a choice of accommodations. i sent them std' packages with a newsletter that had a list of reccommended hotels in various price ranges as well a different packages they could book. they were able to choose what they could afford.

Booking at different hotels would not be an option since it would mostly be family coming. There are a lot of single people in my family so they all want to be together so they know someone there.
I love Dreams Cancun but from here were looking at around $2000pp. I guess its due to the flight. Im going to keep my fingers crossed that SOMEWHERE will be affordable and nice as well.
Thanks everyone for making me feel better

It's absolutely beautiful and most of our guests (even the pickiest ones) said it's the nicest resort they've ever been to.

How did you like the wedding there? Was it at all private? Any info on the location would be really appreciated
