Hello and congrats! Like some of the other brides have mentioned, you need to do some research and definitely set a range for a limit. We wanted between $1500-$1800 all-inclusive for our guests (flight and hotel), which we managed to find, and are so happy with our choice (Dreams Los Cabos). The hardest part is explaining to guests that they are not going to find last minute prices when booking so much in advance.

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.
