Hi everyone. I'm new here and am in need of your wisdom!

 

We're expecting 60+ guests at our wedding and are looking at Cancun/Mayan Riviera. We're on a super tight budget since we'll be paying for my fiances parents to attend plus 1 flight from south america. 

 

Can anyone recommend a resort for a larger group that has fewer extra costs? 

 

Most of the resorts I've looked at charge for guests above 20 ppl which is fine, but we're looking for a resort with a lower fee pp or an inclusive semi-private reception for a large group. We can't afford to pay $50-85 pp plus open bar, tables, chairs, decor etc.

 

Please let me know if you've encountered any resorts that might work for our tight budget!

 

Many thanks!

Jessica

The resort I got married at 2 weeks ago was really good, especially for price.

They have a lot of different wedding packages to choose from and their upgrades and add-ons aren't super costly!  I was very impressed at the quality of everything and the service provided was fantastic.   

 

It's the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya  or the Grand Sirenis Mayan Beach.

2 resorts on one, but you have access to all services.  The Mayan Beach side has the oceanview rooms so it may be more pricey from that perspective.

 

If you look at the resort and think you may be interested let me know and I can give you tonnes of info on it!

 

I had 45 people. I upgraded to the private palapa for ceremony and reception. Extended it by 4 hours, had the DJ for 6 hours, cocktail hour, mariachi band, golf cart service, tonnes of extra flowers, etc.  Also had a hair trial, then hair/makeup on my wedding day and after deposit I paid around $5000 Canadian.

 

Edit: I should add that my resort's packages included 10 people. With the upgraded to the palapa I had to pay per person (noone was included). I choose the buffet and that was about $32 per person.

If you want to use an A'la Carte it includes the 10 people and prices vary for each person over and above depending what menu you want.

Hi Joyce,

 

Quick question. Do they allow outside weddings if you aren't using the resort?

For a larger group, some resorts like Hard Rock and Palace has free private events.  The free weddings even include decorations or you can use resort credits.

 

If you want to contact us, we can break down the pros and cons of the different resorts.

I recommend palace and hard rock. It seems that their group benefits haven't been topped by anyone

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
