      I'm sure lots of ladies would love to help so maybe you can give us a bit more info.

       

      How many people do you expect?

      Will there be children?

      What price range do you want your guests to pay?

      Do you mind a long drive to the airport?

      Do you want to be close to the action in Playa del Carmen?

      Yup, affordable is in the eye of the beholder.

       

      You can pay $2000 for a week at a resort that has 15 restaurants, a night club, and 7 pools.

       

      Or you can pay $1000 for a week at a hotel with 1 restaurant and 1 pool with a 20 minute drive to night life.

       

      So some people would say the $2000 is most affordable due to the choices available and not having to leave the property...

        @janette34-

        How many people do you expect? i expect about 50 people

        Will there be children? yes, there will be children

        What price range do you want your guests to pay? from $1000-1200 MAX

        Do you mind a long drive to the airport? Depending how long. If it is about an hour. I wouldn't like that because of the kids. Half an hr is perfect.

        Do you want to be close to the action in Playa del Carmen? No. I do not want to be around the party people in town.

         

        @Tlseege- I would love a beautiful resort with awesome grounds and locations to have the ceremony. If you know of anything please let me know. Thanks!

          Not sure where you are flying from but you could check out the Ocean Turquesa, its only about a 20 minute drive from the airport.  We booked a last minute trip and got an awesome deal so I'm not sure what the cost would be for an advanced group booking.  It has a nice beach without as much coral/coarse sand as many do in the Riviera.

              We're flying out of Halifax, Nova Scotia and my TA is also my aunt so she got us rates a year ago for about $1350 per person, taxes in with the chance of a rebate if the price dropped within 45 days of our departure, it didn't but that's okay as I actually expected to pay between around $1500 that far in advance.  The Grand Sirenis is a little over an hour from the airport, could be more if you have other guests on your bus getting dropped off at different resorts.  The hotel itself has a good range of wedding packages from around $2000 to $6000 dollars depending on how many extras you want.  They also have a free package but you need to book a lot of rooms to receive that.  For kids the Grand SIrenis would be great they have a kids club, lazy river, ice cream shop, etc.  Our main reasons for picking it was the price, the fact we had stayed there before and their private beach wedding location. 

               

              I can give you more info and some pictures in a few weeks if you like.

               

              You could also check out the Gran Bahia properties, little farther yet probably closer to 1 1/2 - 2 hours from the resort but we loved that property too and did look into booking it for our wedding.

                  Matt,

                   

                  I'm getting married at Excellence Playa Mujeres on March 23, 2013 but I'm also going down for a family event later this month. We haven't taken engagement pics yet and I would like to find out more information to possibly use you guys for engagement pics this month and/or wedding pics next year if you're already too booked for this month.
