My FI is basically paying for it all. I guess we have a lot to figure out. I just don't want things getting crazy!
    WOW, $4000 for the band?? I would definetely spend the $4200 on the photographer to have great photos to look back on . . . no questions asked. You can't go wrong with Del Sol from what I've seen of their work.

      I'm one of the few brides out there who is not into photography, so we are not spending a ton on it. I am personally not really interested in much professional photography. I'm truly happy with what my family will take and the candids we get. So we are getting a very basic photography package that is around $1000.

        How'd you find a band?? I've been so nervous about finding a band in Cancun! Did you get a chance to listen to them before you booked? I'm afraid to book one without hearing them first...

          We are getting married in Costa Rica and I had friend that lives there recommended a great young photographer. I really like her work and she has been very responsive and extremely enthusiastic.

          Our package is $2000.00 and includes:
          Engagement Session 2 hrs -$300.00/45 images high and low res.
          Rehearsal Dinner 3 hrs-$300.00/ 200 images
          Bride Prep - Ceremony, Couples Session and Reception 8 hours - $1200.00/ 300 images
          Expenses - $200.00 includes, trans, accommodation and food for 2 days.

          I also added a provision to our contract limiting the use of the wedding photo's on photographer's website. Establishing that they need to be approved by us and no more than four images.

          Good Luck!

            our friends got married outside of Cancun last year and recomended the band Kiko and Carlos. they have a website where you can see their song list and hear their music. They charge $900/hr but if you compare that to what you would spend in the US, its a bargan! The couple were very pleased and had a great time! I'll have to look up their web address but you could try googling them.
