    Hi Everyone!

    Currently I am attempting to finalize a location for our wedding. Our catch is that approx. half our guests will fly from Toronto and the other half from Halifax and we would like to go with and area that is somewhat affordable for both.
    I have my sights set on Mexico but can be swayed, except not Cuba as we have already had family/ friends married there and would like a different location.
    Now I know that different destinations have carriers that fly more regularly out of Halifax but not being from there myself I don't really know. I would like to at least tell my guests a rough idea of destination and costs in the next month or so as we were thinking a 2010 wedding (between Jan- April) and the flights/ packages are not out yet.
    Any advice?

          Hi TIA!

          Mexico is really pretty and affordable. Regarding the flights issue, have you tried talking to a Travel Agent? In five minutes they will give you the 411 so that you can make your decision.
          Welcome to the forum and happy planning!

              My advice talk to a TA. Most prices to Mexico aren't too bad if they are the Atlantic side for those of us from Halifax (generally around $1200-$1600). Your Toronto guests will probably get it for about $200-$300 cheaper than the Halifax ones. I am am not oo familiar with Mexico since we are heading the the DR, but at a local travel agency close to where I work, I generally see deals posted for places like Mayan Riviera, Cancun, Ixtapa, Tulum. I think your best best would be to talk to a TA to get an idea of both locations and prices.

                Welcome to the forum! I'm a little biased but I really do believe that there are some gorgeous resorts in Mexico and can't compare to Cuba. A lot of fellow brides are paying around 1200-1500 from Toronto. One thing that some brides forget is the legal paperwork involved when choosing a wedding location.

                Thankfully, Dreams Tulum doesn't require this and all you need is your passport and to be in Mexico 4 days before your wedding date.

                Something to definitely consider when selecting your resort.
                Good luck and happy planning!

                    Congrats Tia and welcome to the forum! Like others have mentioned already, you could always give a TA a quick call and get estimated costs to your dream location. Mexico is usually one of the more affordable options and there are so many beautiful locations to choose from. You'll find lots of great ideas, sources and vendors on this forum that will help with your DW planning. Best of luck!
