          Ha, I had the opposite problem; everything that I found seemed like it was meant for elopements and not weddings with guests! (i.e., the wedding package was always for just 2). I know Sandals offers packages for elopements, and I found a lot of such packages when looking at St. John and St. Thomas in the USVI. Good luck!

                Congratulations! My FI and I had the same plan. But i knew my parents would def. want to be there for it and i really want my Dad to walk me down the aisle. So it's just going to be our immediate family (about 12 people total).
                I originally wanted Dreams Punta Cana- then we decided on Cancun instead. Dreams has the "free" wedding package it includes flowers, a small cake) i think the legal fees are extra but you should check out their website.

                Dreams Resorts & Spas: Unlimited Luxury

                Good luck!

                    Thanks for the tip! I haven't investigated either of those locations much so I'll dig a bit deeper.

                      Welcome to the forum and Congrats!!!!! I am eloping as well!

                      Our wedding is scheduled for a little more than a month away at Aventura Spa Palace. Originally we weren't planning to elope but rather a destination wedding that included every one we knew. But after financial issues and all the stress of making every one else happy we decided to elope.

                      I chose the Palace resorts due to their free package. I have found that most resorts who offer wedding packages seem to have a basic package that would work for an elopement. I was origianlly booked with Dreams, when we were planning a big wedding, but then when we decided to elope we went with Palaces because they offered a free package with out a stay requirement. A lot of resorts require you to stay a minimum amount of nights in a upgraded room to be eligible for a free package so beware you may end up saving more money by actually paying for a package.

                      I would suggest looking at Dreams Resorts, Palace Resorts as well as Sandals and Couples. Also talk to a travel agent. There are a lot of good ones on here. Tell them what you ar looking for and I am sure they can point you in the right direction.
