I am just in the idea stages of planning a destination wedding. I was thinking of March of 2013 in Riveria Maya/Playa de Carmen. But then I realized this will be college spring break season. Do you think the rates will be higher during this time? What about the crowds?

I'm sure other ladies on here can answer your question better then i can, but personally i would try to avoid the spring break season. Even though some resorts say that they have a strict "no spring breakers" policy chances are they will still be there.
We stayed in a hotel in the dominican at the begining of march last year, and one area of the resort was like one big high school party....drunk girls being carried to thier rooms, cups and limes all over the pool deck....it wouldnt exactly be the environment i'm picturing for me wedding.
As for the rates, im not too sure if they would be more or less...

I attending a wedding in Playa del Carmen in April 2011- it was the week before Easter, so prime spring break time. We stayed at a All Inclusive Adults only (16+) resort. It wasn't as crazy with spring breakers as I thought it would be. Actually, a majority of the people we met at the resort were vacationing from Europe. I believe that things are more expensive during Feb-April just because it is the high season. If you are looking for budget-friendly, consider moving to November. Rates are much lower then because it is technically the end of hurricane season. Good luck with planning!
