    Aw lawd, I don't even want to think about budget! Money stresses me out.

    Here goes in $CAD:

    Wedding Package @ RIU Palace Riviera Maya: $2781
    Bridal and Bridesmaid Attire: $1240
    Groom and Groomsmen Attire: $450
    Photographer: $3850
    Videographer: $1416
    Invitation & Blog: $60
    Wedding Rings: $1000
    Flight & Hotel: $4600

    TOTAL: $15,380

    I'm praying we can keep within the budget.

      its good to see the things every has budgeted for because my budget is half ass right now, but its up around 11000. We really wanted to stay under
      10k, but I don't see how that will be possible unless we cut out our honeymoon. I'm going to complete my budget tonight (with the help of all of your budgets) and I'll post mine later.

        Jilly - not that this follows any generally accepted accounting principles or anything, but you can exclude your dress from the wedding budget & it makes it a lot easier to swallow!!

                  Who are you using as a WC again? Why do your fire dancers cost so much? I thought I saw girls post here that their fire dancers were in the 600-700 range. Did the cost go up that much?

                    I am using Baja Weddings and they are doing everything from start to finish. I figured it was better to pay 1,500. vs 800. for the day of services that the resort was charging. The cheapest package for the firedancers was 660. with tax, but my FI wanted all the bells and whistles so we ended up with more expensive package. The price includes 2 dancers with 3 musicians for a 20 minute show.
