What I would do again, What I would change

Recommended Posts

Wow, thanks Natasha. This is really helpful. I will start drinking water TODAY! I can't afford fireworks anymore, but where can you get sparklers down there? Based on consumption, I figured in 5 drinks at $6 each per person at our reception. This is in addition to 28 bottles of wine and 14 bottles of champagne. But you have a good point about people drinking by the pool all day. Do you think I overestimated? Mind you, we are mostly from Wisconsin which is a very heavy drinking state. Maybe I will save some $ here.

 

The whole rental car/cab issue is exactly why we chose a resort right in Cabo. Ours is walking distance (sometimes a long walk) from everything. They only have to take a shuttle from the airport and that is it. Seriously, this can save your guests so much money. The one time we took a cab from downtown to Puerta Vieja (7 km) it was $20 each way for 2 people. We rented a car for ourselves but almost noone else did.

Thanks for all the information Natasha. I really want to get married barefoot. I think that was a great idea that you hemmed your dress to fit being barefoot. I also like the fire dancer idea. How long was the show?

You know - I'm not sure, but it was longer than I thought it would be. It was definitely worth the money.

Nothing wrong with over-estimating and being pleasantly surprised later. Check with your hotel on the drink costs. For us, I think they ranged from $5 for domestic beer to $10 for margaritas (we took out the expensive tequilas as it got even more expensive from there). I'll check my bar bill this weekend and see if I can help you estimate.

Rebecca, I saw your slide show on Juan Carlos' website. Your photos are great and your wedding looked beautiful! I am newly engaged and thinking of going to Dreams as well. How long did you book your photographer? PS. Can't wait for that list!
