    Hi All! I've been engaged since November 2007 and my fiance and I have been planning a San Francisco wedding for September 2009. Our current estimated budget has skyrocketed, so we are looking for an alternative. We have been tossing the idea around to have a destination wedding in Mexico or Puerto Rico. Hoping to gain insight, tips, inspiration and advice! Thanks!!

          Welcome :) You'll definitely save $$ by moving the wedding out of S.F. and to another country...now where is up to you! Since you're in the Bay Mexico may be the most affordable and convenient (shorter, nonstop flights) for more people...particularly the Pacific side like Cabo/PV.

          But, it's your gig so if you want to go to PR or anywhere that direction, go for it and those who can come will. Happy planning :)

            welcome to the forum!!! SO glad to see another Bay Area bride here!! You are going to save a boatload of money by moving your wedding outside of SF - it's crazy!!!! I nver thought about having a wedding in SF - I can barely afford to live here :P

            I think Mexico is a really great option since (I presume) most of your guests are in california? Cabo is really easy to get to as is Puerto Vallarta since they are on the pacific coast of Mexico. Best of luck planning!!!
