Resort recommendation for destination wedding with kids

This is a 2nd wedding for both of us and between us we have 4 kids under the age of 13 that we want to be present. We have always talked about a beach wedding! The only time that will work with school schedules and sports is July, 2012. From what I understand it is a cost effective month to travel to hot places which is a plus. We want to go to Mexico but some family and friends say they won't go to Mexico. We want simple yet elegant and inexpensive yet not "cheap". We have been to Cabo and Cancun areas and love the sand and water of Cancun areas better.

Need suggestions on family friendly, nice yet not luxurious (price wise), great beach, all inclusive resorts! Advice and suggestions WELCOME! :)

I think the Iberostar Tucan would be an option. The Iberostar resorts are nice properties for families. When we went in 2007, we saw a beach wedding there. The Tucan is not a luxury resort. But it is nice, with good service and decent food. The IB Tucan is in Playacar , which is located on a great beach, and is close to Playa del Carmen, walking or short taxi ride.

Other resorts in Playacar:

-Sandos Playacar

-Riu Yucatan

-Riu Playacar

-Riu Palace Mexico

-Riu Palace Rivieria Maya

-Playacar Palace

-Gran Porto Real

There are a couple more, but I don't know much about them
