            Thanks!! Time is flying by SOO fast. I just returned from my tradeshow in Vegas (that I coordinated). It was a long exhausting week. I am leaving for a wedding in DC on Thursday. My FI is a groomsman. Then I come back and have my shower, then my wedding is ony a few weeks away. I can't believe it!!

            I am getting excited and alittle anxoius. There are still som many "little" details that I am afraid I might forget. I need to start making a list.

              Did any of you have to pay location fees at the hotel for ceremony or reception areas?

                I did not, I guess because we were spending enough on rooms and food/drinks! I have heard that now you have to though, unless you book 10 rooms or something. Do you have to pay a fee?

                  We did have to pay location fee for the beach area for the whole day and the reception area at PB Sunset beach. For the reception the costs for linens and tables, chairs and the basics were covered in the price. I am not certain that all the guests are going to stay at PB so we payed the fees and if they do then they will apply the cost to bar or food.

                    I think I'm one of the very few on this board that is NOT having her wedding at an AI resort. Of couse, my budget reflects that. Currently, we are estimating $35k for everything from our scouting trip to Cabo through to the honeymoon.

                      This is a tough one, but here goes - this is for 65 people and we're hosting two nights:
                      Flight: $800
                      Hotel Rooms: $1100
                      Hair/makeup: $120
                      Flowers: $800
                      Music: $2150
                      Reception/Cocktail Hour Food: $3470

                      Cake: nothing - included in dinner
                      Invites: $200
                      Arch: $300
                      Coordinator Fee/Judge: $800
                      Photography & Video: $1600
                      Fire Dancers: $675
                      Fireworks: $2000
                      Salsa Teachers: $380
                      Nanny: $80
                      Ring Bearer/Flower Girl Stuff: $60
                      Chair Sashes: $200
                      OOT Bags: $1000

                      Plus - gifts for parents, attendants, FI, and me; wedding bands; wedding dress; entertainment while we're in Cabo, etc.

                      The info above does not include 10% tax and 15% tip. We'll come in around $45,000 not including the engagement ring. Ouch - but way less than we would have spent had we had it at home.
