    Hi! I'm Jennifer. I'm getting married the first week of November..somewhere on the beach in Mexico (preferably the Playa del Carmen/Riveria Maya area. Then we're having a big party/reception back home in Ohio on 11/14.

    I found this site while looking into destination weddings. We want a simple wedding at an all-inclusive resort with a four star or greater rating.

    We could have anywhere from 10-40 people attend the wedding.

    We like Riu Palaces but are also looking into Dreams Tulum, which was reccommended by one of our travel agents.

    Due to the state of the economy (and because I'm a deal hunter), I'm looking for the most for our dollar and don't want the trip to be a financial hardship for our family.

    I'm hoping this site will give me some good insight.

    Thanks for reading!

        Welcome to the forum! I'm getting married on November 14th at Grand Riviera Princess. I also wanted a nice resort that was reasonably priced for my family and friends who wanted to join us. We found an amazing deal for this resort. It's 4 stars and only just over a year old so maybe that's why the rates we got are really good. You might want to check it out.

            Welcome Jennifer!

            If you haven't settled for the Riviera Maya and want to stretch your dollars may be you could look into Puerto Vallarta.

            A lot more convenient plus it has the advantage that the destination is in between a very traditional area in Mexico. You get to see the culture.
