    How much is to much to ask guests to pay to come to your wedding in Mexico? We are looking at Playa Fiesta in October which usually is low season but for 2009 they raised the prices so now it is the same as high season. The rate for 5 nights is $1540 per couple plus tax and room service fees (27%). This includes all breakfasts, 3 nights dinner, two evenings of entertainment and open bar during the visit. I have no idea what flights are going to cost... waiting on that. Is this too much? I am worried that some of my good friends may not be able to make it.

    Suggestion or input would be greatly appreciated.

      Before I had done any research planning our wedding, I would say yea, that is a lot of money. But now that I have crunched numbers for a wedding in Mexico, I don't think it is that bad. It comes out to $154 per person per night. The all inclusive places that we are looking at are up to $200 per person per night. We are also considering some non-AI places, because it is a lot of money. I really like Playa Fiesta, but it is the minimum night stay that ruled it out for us. I say if your guests can come for that long, then go for it. I have never read one bad thing about it!

          That's really not that bad...our guests are going to be paying up to $1200 per person (not including airfair) for 4 nights. But we are getting married in high season.

          We're going in late Sept. of this year and it's costing us about $1100 each for 4 nights (including airfair and all taxes).

          Hope that helps.

            I think it sounds like a good price.

              I guess it sounds high to me. We are staying at an AI for 10 days and or rates for 2 adults and 2 kids including airfare was $4,300 (or close to it)

              We are going in low season so maybe that's why.

              We got a rate of $800 for a 3 night 4 day at an AI for our guests. I have only heard one complaint from one person - but I kicked her out of my wedding party so it doesn't matter anyway.

                That sounds about right - is it an AI?

                  I don't think it sounds too bad. We were at an AI and our guests were between 800-1000 per person with everything, those were 4-5 night stays.

                    Sounds reasonable to me. Most of my guests paid $1500 each for 7 days at an AI including airfare. You said $1500 per couple not including airfare right? I think that's a great deal, plus Playa Fiesta is totally exclusive right? It will only be your wedding party? I love all the pictures of the resort.

                      I think it's reasonable, but I know my friends and family wouldn't have. Do you have a feel for what most of your guests are expecting to pay.
