    We fainlly booked Now Sapphire for the same reason....more people included. Stayed there last summer for 4 nights and it was beautiful! Their wedding package seems to include a lot more than most other resorts.

    I stayed at Now Sapphire two summers ago. It was beautiful :) you won't be disappointed

      Definitely AnaSteele,

       

      I chose Mexico for the same reason!!!

      But can they buy separate, air and hotel? That is how I have it arranged with my TA since prices for airfare are not out yet and buying a package would require ME making a non refundable 10% deposit for all flights I put on hold. NOT HAPPENING! 

      Well, all packages come with flight. It is generally more expensive when we break apart the flight and hotel. In addition, there are not too many airlines that fly direct (only Sunwing, AirTransat and Westjet). AND each carrier only fly certain days. Yah I have to put a big deposit down too..but it's refundable so it's more or less OK.

        Ugh! It's so hard to stay in a decent budget! I think we'd like to be under $15k for EVERYTHING including airfare, our rooms, all of it! I think its doable, but prob not inclusive of our attire. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread for sure!

              Our wedding is at Dreams Tulum. We did have to give up photography (using resorts) but we have two guests in our party who went to school for photography (though are not professionals), so I feel confident that we'll get some good ones.

              Is your flights & All inclusive trip cost of $2,325 inclusive of the TA deposit, resort deposit and trip down payment?

                The $2,325 is the total cost , the deposit and downpayments will be applied to that. My total amount takes that subtraction into consideration
