I was wondering which resorts/chains in Riviera Maya tend to be most affordable for a wedding. I am looking at 50-75 guests, with private reception/dinner in one location, so things are getting pricey. Would like a family friendly resort.
As far as ceremony, I just want some privacy so people aren't running around in their speedos right next to us, but otherwise I feel flexible on whether its on the beach/garden, etc. Kind of picky on location of reception, I don't want it on the beach, but I'm fine with a either a really pretty restaurant/hall, or half open restaurant/gazebo near pool/beach type of place -- I just want it to be more on the elegant than beachy side, but an integration of both the outdoors/destination and elegant would be most ideal.
I feel like it is very hard to compare the resorts, as certainly the base package price on websites is completely different from what it all ends up costing once you take into account the large wedding size and private reception. Also, looking for somewhere that will let us keep the party going after an 11pm cut off time.
Sorry -- I know this is a lot of requirements, but I figured I would ask because I am going crazy trying to compare everything and maybe someone has been in the same boat!
