    Greetings ladies, I'm hoping to hear from brides who had taken advantage of the free wedding package offered by various resorts. Any that are fabulous and that you would recommend? Thanks so much.

    Hello
    I am not yet married but at our resort we chose the free wedding package but upgraded our dinner/reception as a semi private in an ala carte is all that was included in the free package and we wanted more. The reason I chose the free package and upgraded is because the bigger packages had so much I didn't want but the free package didn't have exactly the things I envisioned.

    Unless you want a pretty basic wedding the free packages don't include a tonne of extras or private things. So you may want to upgrade some things.

    We are staying at the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya.

      We booked Excellence Riviera Cancun.  For me the "free" package had almost everything I wanted.  I will be upgrading to at least the middle package, but its only $650 more and has everything I have to have in it, including a private reception.  Just depends on what you want, but for me this was the best package as I was looking for something simple and not a "free" package that you would have to add a ton of stuff into it to make it fee like a wedding.

      I agree. My location upgrade was $980 but then I have to pay per person for food. Otherwise I only upgraded a few decor things and got a DJ. It's my preference for the 6 hour open bar that's $$ but the free package with upgrades was what I needed and still by far the cheapest.

        I think it's important to determine how many people you truly think will be attending your wedding celebration, because this can definitely impact your "free weddings". For some, the more people- the more that are free... But for others, at first glance it may seem like a lot is included and that a practically free wedding is possible- but then with the fine print you may discover that this is only for 10 people (for example) and any more than that would have a $/pp which can be very steep. We chose a resort that had the basics included but lots of other options offered ala carte- which I liked better since with many "wedding packages" I researched, several items would not have been used and you couldn't trade them for something so they became a waste!
