    Hi travelgal78,

     

    I completely understand your disappointment with Xcaret prices - I've been there to. After learning about all the complications and expenses, I was ready to give up on Xcaret, but I really loved the place. Did you considered having just your ceremony there and the reception at another place? The fee for any of the churches or the pond is around $1,600. The only other thing that you would need to get is music (add another $700). This option is available only on a weekday. I know, its still pricey, but the place is unbelievably beautiful and you will have amazing pictures and very unique ceremony that would not compare to any hotel.

     

    Search for DelSol's pictures of a wedding in the Chapel of Guadalupe (its inside the grotto). I think the name of the bride was Savy (maybe Mat can help on this one).

     

    There are also a few beach clubs around Xcaret where you can have your reception for much less than Xcaret's prices.

     

    This is an option that I went with, so feel free to ask any questions.

    anaMay2014, thank you for your advice. I actually do not want a "church" style wedding and was looking to do a ceremony on the beach with the reception at Xcaret but that doesn't look like it is going to work. I'm now back to my original plan of either Isla Mujeres Palace or Secrets the Vine. I had to rule out Secrets Maroma because of price for my guests :(

      Wow the pics look fantastic. I recently got engaged and I wanted to have the wedding there but I do know that it can be quite expensive. I was looking at Now Jade and that seems to be the hotel we are going to book at but I am sad that we couldn't do a catholic ceremony. I am so glad that I found this forum and now hope to have the ceremony there. Can you advise on who I can contact for prices? I need to keep cost down so i dont want to hire a wedding planner. Hope to do all of it myself. I have plenty of time as it wont be until July 2015!

          Wow, these photos at Xcaret look amazing! We already booked months ago, but I so wish I had seen this back then!
