Thanks girls for all of the suggestions. I of course have to cover everything with Joe which is harder than it should be! I am completely ok w/ the idea DR. It really would come down to hotel pricing. The only thing even in comparison to the same price of our flights is Hawaii. So we would have to find a hotel w/ a good price and be able to only come out spending a little bit more, or I'm afraid we would just lose more guests and then it would be pointless for plan b.
We aren't staying at GBP Akumal so I wouldn't be able to compare them w/ someone else. We are really staying at a small local hotel (Joe and I have a Villa) their restaurant is catering, we're using their palapa for the reception. Our WC is from the Turtle Bay Cafe. Our wedding is on the beach. We have a menu that everyone has chosen what they want so it will be a sit down dinner and everyone will be served what they ordered in advance. Finding a plan b is going to be hard for us. i'm really getting ideas and hoping I never have to act on them. Our guests have really relaxed w/ the idea of just having a plan b. Like MarieSam (my Akumal-sis) said the Akumal wedding is my reality. I KNOW we won't find anything like it, and it most certainly won't cost the same!!!!!! This wedding (including photography, clothes, everything other than hotel and flights cause they were gifts) only cost us $4700
