    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!

              Natasha,

              Thank you for the advice. I've already printed out your list and am going to start checking things off.
