Hi, Congratulations and welcome to the forum! It is your wedding you cant stress too much about your guest the people who want to be there will be and remember it is also a great holiday for them with discounted hotel rates! We live in Australia and are getting married at Dreams in cabo on 11th April 2011 we gave all our guest more than a year's notice and have set up a website where i have posted any great flight deals that i have found from england and australia (my Fi is from england) we got a good deal on rooms as we were booking a min of 12 rooms, we used a travel agent from this forum. I am so excited about my destination wedding! Good luck!
This is my very first post (with 2nd time posting this message and I am pretty sure I posted this in the wrong thread prior)
My name is Frances and my fiance and I have just started to consider/try to determine whether we are going to do a local v.s. destination wedding for March 2012. In researching destinations, we are very interested in Cabo. We have reached out to a few planners and are currently awaiting a preliminary proposal. While it appears positive that we may be able to afford hosting a wedding/reception in Cabo, we have a concern relating to guests. We would definitely want to give guests at least 11-12 months to prepare/save. But the concern i have is, how much is too much to expect someone to be willing to pay to attend. I definitely understand that some will and some will not be able to attend but for those that do want to attend and plan to save in order to attend, how much it too much to expect them to pay for hotel and airfare.
