    We have been engaged since June 2015. Finally decided to go with a destination wedding, shooting for 03/2017. I have been looking to keep costs low for our guests and ourselves. I have decided to try and find an all inclusive resort in Puerto Rico. Which allows a lot of my family to avoid going through the process of getting passports.

     

    I have become so frustrated with the websites of the resorts not confirming whether they are all inclusive. I fell in love with Grand Melia Resorts architecture but was devastated that it was not an all inclusive resort to benefit my guests.

     

    We are looking to have a small intimate wedding with about 30-40 guests. We would like to have the ceremony and reception in the same location. I despise getting married on the beach and looking for outdoor setting for the reception.

     

    Please brides if you have any advice for me and know of any ALL INCLUSIVE resorts in PR or any other US island.

     

    If I do not find a definite place I may be eloping.

     

    Please help!

    This may be hard @ElizaS.  I think there may only be 1 maybe 2 all inclusive resorts in PR.  They aren't known for all inclusives unfotunately.

    @ElizaS Welcome to BDW!

     

    I did a brief search and have to say I didn't come up with any all inclusive resorts in PR. For the cost of what it would be for meals, the cost of a passport would be worth it. That would allow you to be able to consider other venues like Mexico. You don't say where you're travelling from. The other consideration might be the Florida Keys but there again, you would have a lot of trouble finding an all inclusive resort.

     

    Good luck!

      @acw271011 and @Janjin

       

      Thank you for all the advice Ladies. I just need to rethink the location then. My family and I will be flying out of Philadelphia. I wouldn't mind considering Mexico. But since our wedding date is close to Spring Break, I didn't want all the loud college kids.

       

      Any other locations in the Caribbean with great wedding packages?

      I am so lost at this :(

        @ElizaS Mexico is such a big country, to be exact Spring breakers are mainly in Cancun.   But you still have Playa del carmen to tulum to choose your all inclusive without crowded beach.

        @ElizaS There is also Jamaica. We got married in Jamaica and renewed our vows in Mexico so I'm in love with both places. You have a lot of things to think about but your budget has to be your first consideration. I would strongly advise talking to a travel agent. They would be the best to help you figure out your must haves, what you don't want and also the budget for your guests. From there you can make realistic informed decisions about what locations will work for you.

        Good luck!

        @ElizaS definately look into Jamaica as an option, there's a lot of all inclusives to choose from.

          I reached out to the travel agency through the site. I am leaning toward Dreams Sands in Cancun and Iberostart Peraiso Maya. Has anyone had any weddings here or stayed at these resorts. Pictures on the site only show so much.

           

          I want to make things as affordable as possible for my guests. But as I search I am becoming more and more selfish about what is more important to the Fi and I.

           

          Please tell me you guys understand that.

           

          Thanks again.
