    Thanks for the information but we have already came across her blog and fell in love with her pictures. Del Sol has some great shots of the resort as well. The only issue we have is how much we want to spend on a wedding. We want it to be magical but do not want to break the bank. My fiance is busy with school and work so I do a lot of research to help us decide how we want our wedding so I guess that makes me a groomzilla j/k. Thanks everyone for the congrats and we hope to find a lot of useful information.

      "groomzilla" - lol. I haven't seen that term on this forum... ummm ever! it's usually the other way around.

      As for making a DW affordable and perfect, it's totally possible. We did it 2 years ago and there have been plenty of brides since then whom have been able to accomplish the same. I'm pretty sure there's even a budget template if you do a search for it.

      Best of luck planning your perfect wedding and to BDW :0)

        Well there has to be a first for everything right? We were so excited, thought we found the perfect place but cost was the uninvited guest. We were planning on getting married at the Xcaret Park but after getting a quote from the park we clearly realized that the place was not for us. I thought a 20000 dollar budget was enough for a destination wedding but it looks like it will cost a lot more if you want it to be different. I know we can have a beach wedding and spend less money than that but we were looking for something different and fell in love with the Xcaret Park. In addition we went there for a first year anniversary of dating so it was special but the minimum guest list and the cost of extras were too high. I will definitely look for the budget template, thank you.
