      I'm enjoying this. Thanks, it's all very helpful.
      At Esperanza, it is $84 for three hours total for the deluxe option and $56 for the "Esperanza Selection" for three hours. A spreadsheet they sent me confirms that these are the totals because the subtotal comes out to $2460 for for thirty guests, if you include an additional hour at $14.00. Anyway, with tax and gratuity, which they also have a column for in the spreadsheet, it comes out to $3,075. The dinner they use for the spreadsheet come out to $2,880 after tax and gratuity for thirty people.
      All in all, the total comes out to $22,532, if you include wedding cake, music for three hours, photographer for three hours, flowers and arch, and all the legal stuff, like Justice of the Peace, Interpreter, Minister, Paperwork and Wedding Fee. It's a little over my budget, since it doesn't include room and travel, but might be able to make it work. But, I shall also investigate the other suggestions. Thanks. Are you guys always patrolling the other threads as well?

        Oh good, seems like you've got a realistic budget view.

        Patrolling... ha ha!
        But yes, I guess you can say we are!

          You really should visit if you're considering Esperanza. I was in LOVE with this property (especially after we ate dinner there) until we did the tour with their wedding coordinator. The room that you have to use for the reception is configured in a strange way and it has a bad vibe (low cielings, long and thin so it's difficult to set up tables, etc.). Plus, they were not flexible on anything with us.

          the amount of energy that a bride puts into planning her wedding cannot be quantified. if only we put our energy towards good...like feeding the homeless (wait jackie does that) or finding cures for diseases...

          also we have alot of on here

              i am working with a bride on the grand hyatt. the rooms $$ are not that but food gets expensive. Because the wedding is not until 2008 they will not release any numbers on food/bar until january 2007 so i am waiting to hear back from them.

              sherri (destinationbride) is gtting married in hawaii so you may want to ask her what her experience has been so far.
