@futuremrswarrilow:  Grand Palladium is GORGEOUS!! They are wonderful! The hotel is fun and everything is just gorgeous! I havent been to any of the others, but I have been there 7 times, and cant wait to go back. I have never had a single bad experience there, and from what I have seen of the wedding ceremonies and receptions they do a fantastic job and it is totally worth the money! 🙂 Destination wedding in Mexico! How exciting, I am a little jealous! We were considering it, and were considering the Grand Palladium, but because some family members cant fly we decided to do something local.

I’ve never been to a Grand resort…but I have been to Dreams resorts several times, and will be a bride at one next year. They are fantastic and very reasonably priced. We’re heading to Dreams Puerto Aventuras in 9 days, so if you’re interested I can send some pics (we’re doing an engagement photo session with their on-staff photographers).

Our wedding package at Dreams is $2,999 and contains everything a wedding needs (it’s the ultimate package, there are cheaper available). Flowers, make-up, dress pressing, live music, decor, dinner, cocktails, photos, video, etc. etc. Having an actual legal ceremony will cost slightly more though, as there are a lot of extra steps (such as the blood test and judges fee). Have you considered having a legal ceremony for just you and your Fiance in your hometown just prior to leaving? Then you can have a symbolic ceremony in Mexico, much less expensive plus you don’t need to have documents translated, blood taken, travel restrictions, and such. Just a suggestion.

@futuremrswarrilow:  the palladium resorts are always nice.  i haven’t been to those ones though.  the bahia principe resorts are a bit older now compared to the many that are around there.  all of the resorts that you chosen are quite a ways from the cancun airport (approx 2 hrs).  not sure if you were aware of that.

we were just in puerto morelos at the now jade for our minimoon in july.  we went there a couple of years ago and were so impressed that we went back.  there were many weddings going on.  they average 2/day.  i met a few of the brides and they all had wonderful reviews.  i have been to numerous resorts along that coast and if i had to pick one for my wedding, it would be this one.  you should check out their wedding packages if you haven’t already.

My best friend got married at the Grand Palladium and We LOVED it! we all had an amazing time…so much so that my Fiance and I are now considering getting married there ourselves. we too are trying to be very budget concious. ..so that will play a major role in what resort we ultimately choose. But it is up there in our top picks! 

I have been the the Bahi Principe Coba as well, it was also nice, but didnt like that you had to take a train to get to the beach. I preferred the Grand Palladium. 

Also, I Liked Colonial over Kentenah 🙂
