    New to the forum!!! Love it so far!!!

    We are just starting the planning process and have narrowed down a time frame (Oct or Nov of 200. We want to keep the wedding small so a destination wedding seemed perfect. We are thinking Los Cabos. Can anyone disclose what their budgets were for this area? We are counting on around 35 people...

          There are so many cabo brides (myself included) that you will find a ton of information. You said you want about 35 people. Does this include children? Do you want an all inclusive or not? These are some things to think about. Once you narrow it down to an AI or a non-AI and decide whether or not you will have children at your wedding, it will be easier for us to recommend places. But for now I would start looking at some of these:

          1. Dreams
          2. RIU Palace
          3. Sheraton
          4. Hilton

          These are just a few to get you started. Let us know how we can help.

              Thanks Everyone!!!

              I am going to go through the budget threads here in just a second. I definitely want to keep it under $20K but even more would be great!!! No - no kids. I have a cousin that has two little ones but that would be it (if they came). What is the best route (AI or non-AI) if we wanted to host a Welcome dinner and potentially a Sunday brunch. Oh - and our dates did not come through up there. We are looking at Oct/Nov of 2008. We are really mostly interested in the food. I could really careless about flowers, etc. I just want to make sure the site is amazing and the food is great!!!

              Thanks Again ~ Courtney

                Hi Courtney -- if you want something kinda small and very chill look into the Cabo Surf Hotel. We hosted a wedding for 57 people there and I came in under my $20K budget (including travel and hotel for 6 ppl/3 nights, not including welcome dinner)

                It's different than some of the big resorts but we LOOOOOVED it. Cabo Surf Hotel, beach resort, boutique hotel in Los Cabos with surfing, Baja diving and Cabo golf. and I'm always on here if you are interested and have questions!

                if you are on a tight budget and would like to host a welcome dinner and brunch then AI is the way to go...

                we had a welcome dinner
                brunch with newlyweds and it was pretty inexpensive.

                i spent $14,000 for almost 60 people.

                  Thanks again. You all have been really helpful! OK - so we are going to start to look at Cancun/MR as well now. I was searching airfares and getting to Los Cabos from both Raleigh and Detroit (where most of our family will be coming from) is a little tough. Not to mention my mom is now threatening not to come if she can't fly direct

                  Does anyone have any suggestions for the MR/Cancun area? We won't have any kids so we are open to both kid friendly and Adult only resorts. Also, we are open to both AI and EP resorts since we have not narrowed anything down yet.

                  Lastly, how do you earn points? I keep trying to open attachments and I get a note telling my I don't have enough points
