Well, priorities are:
-beautiful location on or near beach (white sand, turqouise waters)
-affordable and somewhat easily accessible for most guests (East and West coasts)
-easy breezy wedding packages, incl reception planning
-nearby or on location entertainment, shopping
-easy for everyone to congregate for casual meetups and the wedding events
We expect about 50 guests, all with different budgets and travel styles. Some rich, some not, some Americanized, some very anti-touristy, some partiers, some laid back early risers.
At first I looked into Maui because it's so dang beautiful. Also, we almost always travel to Spanish speaking countries and wanted something different.
But, I'm worried that it's too expensive, too far, and too boring on that island. I know some guests could opt to stay at different hotels but my fiance really wants to be able to spend quality time with a number of his guests as he doesn't get to see them much. Some of these guests may not be able to afford the hotels we'd like to stay at and organizing meetups might be a pain.
All inclusive seems to offer most bang per buck with a little something for everyone, but AI's are not a main Maui feature.
So.....we're currently looking into Cancun, San Juan Puerto Rico and Punta Cana Dom. Republic. The former and latter seem to be the most affordable, accessible, and still beautiful. We can go to a non-Spanish speaking place for our 2nd honeymoon (Thailand anyone?!)
Our wedding budget is $10K for everything from lights to ceremony and short honeymoon. The fiance would like to keep rooms at no more than $250/night per couple/family.
Any thoughts? We're open to other locations if they fulfill the requirements. Thank you so much guys!
