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.

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

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