Hi everyone :) 1st post!! (actually my 1st post ever on any forum...ever!)


I got engaged in February and haven't even started planning the wedding! Am I the only one who didn't pin their dream wedding on Pinterest before getting engaged??


Anyway, what I DO know is that we want a beach wedding at an all inclusive resort...somewhere! Thinking Mexico (we're from Texas) because we want to keep our guests at about $1000 (would Mexico be the best place??!)


I've been lurking on these boards a few days and the weddings and resorts and ideas are all gorgeous but I can't tell if guests costs are a main concern for anyone?


Thoughts?? I'm open to anything!! Looking forward to hearing from y'all :)

    Congratulations on your engagement Tiffany!  Mexico is a great place to have a wedding at an all-inclusive.  Due to the fact that there are so many AIs, there is enough competition to provide a variety of options at different price points. A lot of people do Cancun, but depending on where you are in Texas, heading to the Pacific coast might be a better bet in terms of cheaper plane flights.  If you are considering the Caribbean, Jamaica might be another option to consider. 


    Personally, the prices my guests had to pay were a concern, as the only AIs that I thought would provide me with the privacy that I wanted would have been far too expensive for my guests. Thus, I picked a very reasonably priced all inclusive in Puerto Morelos, and am busing my guests out for an intimate, private wedding reception in Playa del Carmen about 30 minutes away.  I hope this helps! Again, welcome!
