That is quite a predicament, but at least once you make the decision on location everything else will hopefully fall into place. I wish I could be more help, but you'll find tons of ideas here that will hopefully help you plan your dream wedding.

my wedding was held at a private beach, there are cliffs, an ocen view, private bridal casita, etc. ... and then we chose what resort we wanted to stay at while in PV, we chose Dreams PV. i can promise you that there is not one person that attended my wedding that would say it was anything but classy. many have said it was the most amazing wedding they've ever been to, and some have gone on to have their own DWs.
anyway, i just wanted to point out that you're ruling out some very good options, especially with your budget. don't be so quick to judge an entire country just because of some less-than-flattering headlines.

I will try to keep my head as I respond, but, seriously, where did that come from?
I think this kind of response is not constructive and highly offensive. Why do people feel the need to lecture and put people down, especially when all they have are assumptions and misconstrued "facts". Nowhere in my post did I ever call a country 'not classy', nor would I ever assume so. I really shouldn't validate this post with a response, but I know that there are people out there who will read one bad comment, relate to it, and ignore an entire post (which would give them the whole story and a more objective view of things) to jump into a post-war.
I never had any disinterest in Mexico, I am actually fully open, but my partner has other thoughts. His opinions are based on reputation and from many websites around the area we researched, which turned out tacky, barren, and simply not our style. I, being ever the optimist, still had high hopes that we could find a place somewhere, but he has gotten fed up with over a year of consistent disappointments through our research to form a mental ban on certain locations for our ceremony. Granted, my post was long, but that's why I had to condense information to spare any reader the details--which unfortunately did make my post sound rather awful, for which I posted an apologetic correction.
I hope people take the time to read the corrections or understand the ironic truth that sometimes, words come out one way and can be interpreted an entirely negative and unintentionally bad way.
People are allowed to have their opinions. Some people would get married in Florida, and others wouldn't. Some people would live somewhere, and other's wouldn't. Even itsfinallyhere wrote

Taste is a very personal thing, and not everyone agrees on something. That's the beauty of this forum: people with like tastes can offer you alternative options, while others can find things you would overlook or offer their objective perspective on things. This should be a positive environment, and I don't see any need to jump down someone's throat for example, because they may not like feathery dresses, while your dress is full of feathers.
Please try to confirm your reading of something before you post some spiteful and undeservedly offensive remarks next time. It's not good to go around making enemies. By the way, I've been to Las Caletas before, and yes, I do think it is beautiful. Keep in mind that if you would have worded your comment differently, my response would have been much more positive.

I honestly haven't looked into flights from Canada, so I don't know what is considered affordable from there. I've seen flights to europe the same price as flights to the islands, so it may all be your choice in season. When your fiance ruled out such places as Mexico and Thailand it really sounded like he wanted everyone to be comfortable traveling, even those who have never further than the post office. If that is your guest list I think he has narrowed down you list of countries to a great list. Now you just need to start looking for places in those areas. I am sure you will find loads of information here on the forum. I've seen some beautiful resorts in Italy. I have a book at home. I'll look at it tonight for you. I agree that Greece is another great choice for you.
C) On the concept of all inclusive. If you bring a large group to a resort, most will work with you to build what you want into the price. If you want to offer an all-inclusive package at a non-allinclusive resort, they may be willing to work with you.
D) What is it you are really looking for? Unique? Fantastic service? White coated servers and well orchestrated events? If cost is an issue for some of your guests you may have to find a fantastic smaller hotel and bring in the staff for your big event.
