@Ms_DW_bee:  Much of it will depend on what sort of wedding you’re looking for and how many guests you’ll be having.

For just the basics, many resorts will offer you a free wedding ceremony and small dinner if you book into a certain room category/stay x number of nights.

I’d highly recommend connecting with a travel agent who specializes in DWs. I am using Beach Bum Vacations and they’ve been fantastic.

I’m getting married at Azul Sensatori in Riviera Maya. Our wedding is “free” and then we’re paying extra for private events: a cocktail hour and reception. I’m still adding things, but for ~25 guests we’ll be spending around $3000, decorations included.

There’s also a great destination wedding message board out there that’s not part of Wedding Bee. I’d google and try to find that for a wealth of information.

@Ms_DW_bee:  look into AM resorts.. its a parent company of Dreams, Jade etc resorts. You can’t go wrong with AM resorts.  I’m getting married at a Dreams Resort.. I haven’t decided which one yet though. My BFF got married at Dreams Cancun and it was amazing. The packages range from 1000-3000 for 20 ish people. The webistes have all the info on what the packages offer etc.

I would look into Jade Resorts and Dreams Resorts.. that’s what I’m doing.

Definitely look into a travel agents that deal with those resorts on a regular basis. I have a recommend if you plan on doing an AM resort or a Dreams resort.. let me know if you need that info

Good luck!!

@Ms_DW_bee:  welcome to the hive.

i second the AM resorts.  i personally have been to the now jade twice and loved it.  we went back for our honeymoon.  i met a couple of brides that got married there and they could not say anything negative.  this resort does an average of 60 weddings a month and you can choose from a few different locations for your ceremony and your reception. 

also, the nice thing with this resort is that it is not far from the airport.

We’re not doing all inclusive and I think, in retrospect, it’s been kind of a budget buster.  I wouldn’t change my choices (I had a really hard time finding a resort/location I liked that would allow kids, and most of our guests will only be able to come for a few days – all things that made AI hard for us), but my 2 cents is that it really does help with expense.

I’m in the midst of planning for a wedding at Now in PV (it’s one of the AM resorts).  I’m not sure exactly what it will costs, but since we’re having a larger group (estimate about 50 attendees) and are doing quite a few add-ons I’m guessing the total cost at the resort for the wedding will be about $8000.  

This, of course, doesn’t include costs like the dress and other clothing, the actual cost of staying at the hotel, wedding party gifts, favors/oot bags, rings, etc.

That said, the base packages range from free to $3000.  The $3000 includes pretty much everything you need for a 25 person wedding (including coctail reception and dinner!).  When you start adding marachi bands, DJs, extra decor, and (especially) extra guests you can really spend as much as you like!
