    We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

    We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

      Hi everyone! Thanks so much for all of the replies. I was wondering what you all think of a budget of $7,000 to have a wedding in PV. That would include me and my FI's travel and stay, a hotel room for his parents and hotel room for my brother and of course the whole wedding with probably about 30-ish guests. Is that going to be enough? My parents aren't going to help so we are going to try and save up the money by next April. It doesn't help that I'm a poor med student :)

        You should probably try looking at hotels that come with free wedding packages if you book a certain amount of nights/rooms. Try searching Dreams PV

          Yeah. I have looked at Dreams. So far, I think that is going to be the best deal. I just don't know how much a discount you get if you reserve a block of 10 rooms. It's just SO hard to set up a budget when I don't know what a realistic budget would be.
          I probably shouldn't really stress about it right now anyway. It's a year away!

            Have you contacted a Travel Agent yet? We have a few here - the host, Tammy is a TA and TA Lindsay (I think) specializes in PV. I think they could help you out with this.

            I definitely know how you feel. I started out a year ago and I still have a year to go! When we first started we estimated about what you did. Now our budget is around $15k!!

            Best of luck!

              Wow $15K?!? There's no way we could afford that. Am I going to be able to do it for $7,000?

                There are girls on here that have done if for a lot less than that. I think that is a realistic budget. Mine is 10000 and I haven't even got close yet! You will be fine

                  Thanks for the help! By the way, my FI is from Comanche. We just live in Iowa right now so I can go to med school. I just thought that was funny.

                    That is crazy! I am from Cali originally but have lived here for like 6 or 7 years. I don't even remember how long... Don't tell me he went to Brownwood?!

                      No he went to Comanche HS but he is also 27yo right now. Small world! Most people from Texas don't even know where Comanche is!
                      I'm from Henrietta, Tx which is over by Wichita Falls.....same story, different town.
