Hi fellow Canadian! My friend got married at Grand Palladium (Mayan Riviera) a couple of years ago and was very happy with the resort. This forum has lots of great ideas for other resorts as well. Good luck!

Thanks photogirl.. we are very excited about DW. as the big day is still a year away. we are trying to figure out what is the best. but DW certainly is high on the radar.

i have couple questions,
  • what sort of cost am i looking at to hire a wedding planner?
  • what sort of budget range should i prepare for a DW wedding down in mexico?

i have heard stories that things can be just as expensive as having a wedding locally and i'm a bit concern for the people that we want to invite cuz costs is a big part of the planning for them and myself as well.

any suggestions or experiences that you can share would be greatly appreciated.

thanks everyone.

Hello Mike,

 

Welcome to the forum; there is a wealth of information here about DW's. I'm actually the sister of the bride (that got stuck planning the entire wedding), but I am more than willing to share any information that I can about Cancun if you would be interested. The cost of a DW really depends on what you want & how many guests will be attending. We are having 25 guests & for everything (food, open bar, site, judge, papers, bloodwork, photography, cake, flowers, etc) we are paying close to $5000. Most of the resorts offer a free wedding coordinator when you book your wedding with them. My favorite resorts in Cancun to host a wedding would be Dreams Cancun, JW Marriott & Casa Magna. Dreams Cancun, I think offers the most complete wedding packages at the best prices, but they didn't have our date. If I can be of any help to you, please let me know. Have a great day & good luck!
