    Thank you so much for your help.
    I did provide buses. I used cancuntransfers.com and I think they charge about $150 for a 53 passenger bus and $140 for a 40 passenger (each way).

    I booked all transportation through them so I got a discounted rate - I booked the following transportation:
    • 53 passenger bus from Gran Melia to Gran Caribe for ceremony
    • bus from the ceremony to Le Meridien for the reception
    • bus from the reception back to Gran Melia
    • limo for Groom & GM's to the Ceremony
    • limo for Bride and BM's to the ceremony
    • limo for Bride & Groom from ceremony to reception

    The total cost of everything was $950. This was by far the cheapest rate I got and I asked for quotes from about 8 different transportation companies. Their service was great too and limos & buses were clean and on time.

          Simba 1234,

          Thanks for the bus information, I already contacted Cancuntransfers and they're going to send me a quote! Sorry, I didn't notice in your original post that you had already mentioned Cancuntransfers.

          I have a question about the Chapel. Did you use a live musician, or did you go with prerecorded music? If you went with prerecorded, was there someone from Gran Caribe to hit the "play" button?

          Thanks again.

            I had pre-recorded music that they provided as part of the package. They took care of it...I just told them what music I wanted and they played it.
