Hi everyone! Newbie here!
I AM SO HAPPY THAT I FOUND THIS SITE! I was having such a hard time getting info on average costs for a destination wedding in the Rivera Maya, so I hope to get some feedback here!
We're getting married in October 2017 with a group of 35-55 people. I have NO idea how much the average cost would be. We're planning our budget and I'm thinking 6k is good (for the ceremony/music/decorations/videographer+photographer]
[PLEASE TELL ME IF I'M WRONG]
I want a super simple wedding, nothing crazy.
My main concerns are:
-Photographer/videographer: how much should I set aside for these two? I don't want to spend more than $1,500. [if you have any recommendations, please let me know]
-Outside vendor fees: which hotels/resorts have low fees?
-Ceremony costs for 30-55 people
-Florist: does the resort provide floral arrangements or do we come up with this ourselves? If so, what was your experience like? how did you do it?
-Wedding planner: DO I NEED ONE? I LOVE planning stuff myself. But is it absolutely necessary to get a wedding planner? If so, how much does it usually cost to get one?
Here are the resorts I was considering:
-Valentin Imperial Maya
-Las Villas Akumal
-Excellence Resort Isla Mujeres
I want a small/intimate hotel/resort. I stayed at Sandos last May and I HATED IT because it was such a huge resort. I want to keep it small and intimate.
If anyone has gotten married/plans to get married at these resorts, could you tell me about your experience? OR if there are any resorts you'd suggest, please let me know!
Thank you in advance!
