But yes, we must all remember, that we're doing this because it's our dream, and it will be gorgeous!!!!
And for me as well, no matter where I did it in the world, at least 2/3 of my guests would have to travel anyway...
So, I say, we all stick to our guns, and have the most beautiful weddings in the whole world, and forget everyone else!!!

I'm guessing this is not the norm for most DW couples as much of the pricing I'm coming across (e.g. Sheraton Hacienda at $75 US/person) is not going to save us any money.
Our other key concern is ensuring that Cabo is an affordable destination for our guests. Even though we are looking at AI packages for them, Cabo isn't that cheap when coming from Toronto Canada (we're seeing AI pkgs starting at $1500 and up). Do you know if travel agents are helpful in arranging group AI discounts for large wedding parties such as these (we are planning to contact someone at selloffvacations.com and maybe agent at Flight Centre).
Anyone out there that's had to plan a DW with this many guests? Recommendation on places/locations that will be able to accomodate?

regarding ur group rate question...selloffvacations does do group rates but its not a great deal ur only saving about $50-$100 per person (i looked into all this because I was gonna do it that way as well...at the end of it it justs turns out to b more of a hassel talking to them about getting a group rate than actually paying the regular price
I saw that u are planning on getting married april 20, 2008...that is a great time leaving from toronto caus most places are cheaper...i don't know if ur willing to look into PV or punta cana but they have some great prices....u can probably find $1200 per person
take a look at this resort...its an iberostar property in La romana dominican and its very beautiful on the smaller side with a lot of privacy and ur looking at around $1200-$1300
in PV the riu properties are great also...I stayed at the Riu Jalisco and really liked it but a bunch of people have said negative things about it which i disagree with but a new riu property just opened up next door and is beautiful...Riu Vallarta
Hotel*Puerto Vallarta, Mexico*Hotel Riu Vallarta
hope this helps email me if ud like more info...good luck

We are estimating about 150 ppl (our guest list totaled more than 300) for our wedding. We are in the middle of booking Dreams Puerto Vallarta for our June/July 2008 wedding.
I agree with Edyta, you may want to reconsider the location. Overall Cabo is more expensive than PV (this is one reason why we choose PV).
Also, I've asked the WC at Dreams if prices differ for Adults and children for the wedding reception. And they do! Its about a $20 difference. (I dont want to quote prices right now because I dont have them with me so I'll try to update this later.) Now I'm making sure to consider the ages of all the children who are attending the wedding in my guest list.
PM me if you need any info on dreams PV.
