Hello all – I’m a newly engaged (3 days!) girl from Alberta, Canada. My FI an dI are planning to do a destination wedding next spring in Cancun/Riviera Maya.
I’ve been looking at resorts online through a few travel sites, but I am finding things are SO expensive coming from CAlgary. I’m more concerned about my guests having affordable options thanwhat it costs me and my FI for our trip/wedding (we’re only doing this once, right?).
I’m wondering if anyone has any experience or ideas as to what type of group discounts we can expect for guests when I’m looking at prices online? We’re looking at inviting 50-60 people, and expect 30-40 to RSVP yes.
I’m also open to suggestions for resorts – we MUST have a great and rock free beach (we are more beach than pool people), decent food, family friendly. a 4* or better.
As an idea, my front runners are currently Fiesta American Condesa Canucun (love the hotel, wish it wasn’t in the hotel zone) and the Sandos Playacar Beach (I love the location, think the resort is a little big/outdated for my tastes. If I could have the FAC in the SPB location, I wouldn’t even be asking!
Thanks for any help – this is going to be a tough 9 months!!!
