Cost of a cabo wedding - ballpark figure?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the cost of a Cabo wedding including DJ, food, open bar, flowers, etc. for anywhere from 50-100 people. I'm absolutely lost on this as they just give you a price for each and every little thing, never a good estimate for everything. Any advice or help on this would be greatly appreciated!

It depends a lot on the venue, and the difference between 50 and 100 ppl can be almost double. Ballpark for a non-AI? Maybe $15,000, give or take $5K? Also, do you want to count your airfare, dress, jewelry, welcome dinner, etc in that figure? There really is no one right number.

We are expecting about 75 people at Casa Del Mar resort :

 

There is a deposit that I am not including because it goes towards the total bill at the end.

 

Food is about $7,000 ( this is for a 3 course meal and cake that is being brought from off site and is a $4 per person storage/ cutting fee)

 

$4500 for an open bar (domestic) for 4 hours plus a cocktail hour with a tequila bar.

 

Flowers: $1,000 (florenta flower design) Not having heavy decorations but enough to make it pretty. I can send you our budget that they did if you are interested. They were the most reasonable with great work.

 

Dj: mostly between $230 and $270 an hour (some charge for set up and take down and some do not)

 

We are also going to have a violin and harp player but have not contracted anyone.

 

We are using Mariano Lemus for our phtography and for 7 hours (2 for the welcome dinner and 5 during the wedding day it was $4000).

 

There is usually around a 15% tax on everything so keep that in mind. We have the location fee waived beacuse we have the 10 room block filled. This is not an AI which may cut on cost. I know that if you get married any day but Saturday it is cheaper. Hope that this helps let me know if you have any other questions.

We went over the top and had firedancers, fireworks and hired decorators to redecorate the entire room.

 

Flowers- $2,000 (8 girls bouquets and groomsmen orchids, 7 beautiful and big centerpieces and a sweetheart table. Two roses for father-in-law and Dad. Two corsages for mother-in-law and mom.

 

Photographer- $4,000

Videograpther-$1500

 

Hair and makeup-$ 100 and up.. I am not sure the exact price, but I know it was over $100 and under $200. My bridesmaids did their own hair and makeup. It was worth spending the money.

 

Oxten-Decorators- $8,000-9,000 and it was all well worth it.

 

The total for the Riu was around $10,000. That included the food for cocktail and reception for 60 people, liquor, ceremony and champaigne to toast, firedancers, fireworks, the trio for the ceremony, decoration at ceremony, bouquet and boutinniere.

 

So again we went over the top, but it was all worth it and I wouldn't change anything about the wedding.

I was told by someone who is local there and just got married a year ago to budget $200-400 per person, all in (not including your dress/travel). So far it seems I am goign to go over that as the flowers are a lot more than I thought they would be.

I think it depends on whether you do all-inclusive, or a villa/catered reception. The catered reception (non-AI) will def be more expensive. I'm doing a non-AI and am estimating around 60-70 guests - if you want my budget info, let me know. I've priced out most of the items.

Heather,

What do you mean a villa/catered reception? Like, a house? or a villa st somewhere like Casa Del Mar? I'm confused :)

    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
