    Hey everyone,
    Wow I thought having a destination wedding would be easy but it is turning out to be a bit of work! We've finally set a date for october 09, not set in stone though. We got a few recomendations and we really like the Occidental Grand Xcaret so have been planning for that. Now that I am looking into it more I think it is going to be too expensive and out of our price range. We were looking at keeping it between $1200-$1500 per guest, and maybe spending $1000, but it would be nice if it was free. I don't mind spending a bit on extras and such but the I don't want to spend alot on the ceremony/reception. We just want something small and simple, and just a big group dinner at a a la carte restraunt would be fine. I can't garantee that we would get enough rooms to qualify for the free wedding at OGX. I know no one would book the royal club junior suite, so we would have to book 20 rooms, and the free wedding only includes services for 20 people. So even if we got 20 rooms, that would be 40 people. So I guess what I am asking is if anyone has had a wedding here what was your final cost? or if you can recommend something in my price range/needs that would be awesome :) Thanks so much!

    Kayla

              Hi and Welcome to the forum - I am sure you will find all the help you need - I was married in Cancun at the Moon Palace - but it looks like you have your resort all picked which is one of the hardest parts! Congrats and good luck w/ planning!

                  Thanks everyone. I am not totally fixed on the mayan riveira. We were originally thinking Jamaica but the prices were too high. We have been told that dominican. cuba and mexico were the best prices. So I guess I am going to have to keep this resort in mind and price out some more!
