    Hello Everyone! 

    We finally decided on doing a destination wedding. There are sooo many hotels to choose from in Mexico. What do  you  guys recommend? Around 50-60 people would like private ceremony not on the sand preferably, budget friendly. Thank you  for everyone's advice in advance!

    We are all a little bit bias towards our own resorts I think.

    We chose Azul Fives in Riviera Maya because of the Sky Deck. We also did not want a beach wedding and as soon as I saw these photos we fell in love. The Sky Deck costs $1800 to rent for the reception and then another $15 per plate on top of the food you select. For this view, we felt it was worth it.

    The resort itself isn't cheap but if you are flexible with which month you get married, you can get affordable rates. The Sky Deck itself holds 200 people so you will be able to fit your party no problem.

      @ashhtayy thanks doll!! i looked at that resort also  its goreous but I am trying to be budget friendly for guests as well.. I love that sky rooftop but I thought its going to  be too windy and stuff idk maybe I am being too picky.. so besides paying for the package you  had to pay per plate and per additional guest(i am assuming they have the standard 20-40) you had to pay $1800 + $5 plate?

        @karinaL have you looked at Barcelo and Paradisus playa delcarmen?  Are you working with a Travel Agent?

            Awesome keep us posted on what you decide on.

             

            I have a few brides at Barcelo, and in case you end up with this resort. I thought their Mint breeze package was reasonable.

            @karinaL Being budget friendly to our guests was a top priority as well. We are in Canada and our guests from Ontario are paying $1560 and the others from BC are paying $1730 for 7-nights. Our guests were very happy with their prices.

            At our resort we pay for all of the food. We are paying $36 per plate which includes 4 hours of open bar and then another $15 on top of the $36 because the dinner is served on the Sky Deck. There are cheaper options for dinner (and more expensive!) and to avoid the extra $15pp you could have dinner anywhere other than the pier or the Sky Deck.
