@@HollyMartinz Congrats and welcome!

 

Wow - that's a totally loaded question! There have probably been hundreds of Tulum brides on the site and the "general" average is about 30 to 40 guests, with there always being more or less.

 

Tulum is about the furthest from the Cancun airport so consideration would need to be given to your travel time, approximately 95 minutes. There are a lot of resorts in the area  so a question on costs would be difficult to answer, only because everyone does a destination wedding differently. Plus, your actual resort costs would be a major factor. Their package costs, what they include, what you need to pay extra for, your photographer costs, additional per person costs. There are any number of factors that will affect your overall costs. Setting a budget and working within it is a great way to start!

 

The one thing you'll find as a common "thread" on the site is what ladies encounter with their guests booking their travel! Getting a travel agent is a definite help, in fact probably the biggest. But you can pretty much figure that only about 50% of your "guest list" will actually attend, and that's for various reasons - time off work/school, the cost, kids. And yes, sometimes it's even members of a wedding party that have difficulty. We all want everyone around us to be as happy for us as we are, but life can get in the way. It's no direct reflection on you at all but something to keep in mind when you approach your planning.

 

When it's all said and done, the people that do attend are people that truly want to be there and support you and marrying your best friend in a tropical paradise is the most important thing of all!

 

Good luck and happy planning!

Where in Tulum are you thinking?  At a resort or at a beach club or at a separate property?  
 

By the way, Tulum is gorgeous!  The beaches are simply amazing, so it's a great choice!

Had anyone gotten married in Tulum with approx 30 people attending?

What was your overall cost and how did your wedding party do with deposits and costs?

@@HollyMartinz Welcome to the forum, 

 

Tulum has a lot to offer and has some amazing beaches.  Have you picked a location yet? Tulum is one of the expensive areas in Riviera Maya, I am not sure what you had in mind in terms of budget.  The most important thing is for you to find a location or resort that works with your budget.   also is it in the low or high season?  All budget differs for everyone. 

 

Happy Planning!

Hi!  Can't specificaly answer your question but we are having our honeymoon in Tulum and I did a lot of research through trip advisor to find our honeymoon hotel-Nueva Vida de Ramiro- which hosts small weddings and large weddings, I remember reading a review recently of a bride who had their wedding there with 70 guests and had an amazing time.  So if you don't get a lot of responses here try the trip advisor- Tulum forum and look up that hotel .  I have no idea what prices would be for the wedding, but guest rooms are affordable.  

good luck!

We were planning to have our destination wedding in Tulum at first, but after counting all the costs it turned out to be more expensive. So we found best offer in Playa del Carmen.

@@SandstoBE its true!! Happy you found a location that works with your budget.

 

Tulum is gorgeous but is on the higher price. I always say it depends on what you are willing to pay. 

 

Happy Planning

HI Holly,

check out Hacienda Paraiso Beach Villa in Tulum. It would be perfect for a 30 -50 people wedding.
