    We are planning to have a private wedding ceremony on the beach in April 2013. It is very difficult for me to decide between Tulum and Puerto Vallarta, Las Caletas. I am not sure how many people can attend my wedding and I would think most of my friends and family would look budget and affordble place to stay. Since PV flight tickets is more expensive (as my guest will fly from NYC or Russia) I am not sure about that location but on the another side, I love idea of private island ceremony and dance by the bonfire and ride on the boat and advertised price. Since my family will come from Russia they will probably would also interesting to see ruins and spend a lot of time on the beach (that's why I thought about Tulum). I would think between 15 and 30 people can attend our wedding but I need to decide which place so we can book our site visit this April. I am not big fan of the big hotels and resorts and I am not sure if my guest would like to stay at expensive place so I was more interesting in the smaller botique hotel or villa where we would have a ceremony and reception with a dance and food. I would appreciate everyone feedback as I really need to make a decision soon to decide where should I go this April (Rivera Maya or PV). May be anyone knows if places offers a good deals if I stay in the hotel with my immediate family but other guests will pick their own.

      Welcome!  I was a Las Caletas bride so obviously I lean that way, but Dreams Tulum is gorgeous as well.  The good thing about a Las Caletas wedding is that there is no hotel attached so you can find one that works for everyone's budget.

          Congrats and welcome to the forum!  I'm partial to LC b/c of all the beautiful photos I've seen, but I've never been to MX and what I've learned from this forum is that you can't really go wrong!
