    Hi,

    My fiance, Abel, and I have recently been considering Cabo as our wedding location. Over the weekend, we talked to several friends who said Cabo was very expensive. We anticipate having around 100 people at our wedding with a buffet (maybe just heavy appetizers) and an open bar. From some of the information packets I've received, however, many of the drinks are around $10 - $12 each. If anyone could provide their approximate amounts for open bar and maybe even their buffet (or just appetizers), I would be appreciative!

    We have 9 months until are approximate wedding date and I'm STILL having problems making a decision on where!

    Thanks!
    Magen

      Have you thought about cancun or riviera maya? it's typically less expensive. Also, it's only a 2 1/2 hour flight from houston.

        Congratulations!

        Cabo does not have to be expensive. A fantastic location is the new Cabo Azul. The chapel there is unlike anything in all of Mexico. The hotel is brand new so deals can be made....

        Contact Sergio Morales. He is the exclusive WC at Cabo Azul. You'll love him!

        His email is:

          Just remember the bulk of your money is going to be on food/drinks. No matter where you go

              I agree anywhere you go there will be food/drink costs. Have you thought of dropping your number of people (to maybe your 50 closest) this would cut your food budget by thousands if not tens of thousands. Also, this is just my opinion but since the cost of flying to cabo is a little pricey (from Houston its around $450 with all the new taxes and fees) - you may want to serve them more than heavy appetizers since they will spend atleast $1000 on flight and hotel alone.
              I agree Cancun is a little more of a money saver (especially on flights from Texas).
              There are three things that last: faith, hope and love, and the greatest of these is love.

                Addisonreed1113, you are right. You have to give your guest more then heavy appetizers coming to a dw. I would cut down on the guest list if that is a big factor.
