Help - Cabomax!
Posted 25 April 2007 - 03:46 PM
She called to reserve, and was quoted $4,000 for three hours!
I don't want to pay a premium because we're not using someone in Los Cabos. I understand honoring relationships and giving special consideration to certain individuals, but that quote is $500/hour more than what I have read.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

I believe Tasha paid $500/hour for The Twins.

Turns out they were quoting us $4,000 for three hours, with a full stage set up...but they didn't ask if we needed a stage.
Only after my coordinator mentioned that we have seen $850/hour did they say the extra was due to a stage...think they were trying to get a few more dollars.
So, we negotiated to $3,400 for four hours which is entirely in line with what I have seen quoted. With the stage optional.

Can I ask - how many guests do you expect?
Just asking because when I was planning there was a bride who considered full CaboMax but ended up just using the Twins with a group of 60ish. I went by her recommendation and used just the Twins for my 130ish group and they were great and perfectly sufficent for our group. In fact, I think that the full band would be overkill.
and yes, Christa is right. They were $500/hr + some extra fees. I think total was around $2k for 3 hours.

I think we'll stick with the full group, especially since we will be using a ballroom at the Fiesta Americana so we can have a late night event. We are going from ceremony on the beach, to cocktails on the terrace, up to the ballroom terrace for dinner and then we'll open up the ballroom for dancing/lounge/dessert, etc. I just want to make sure they can keep the party going!

I would definitely see if you can meet in July, we tried to get authorization to see them at an event over the weekend, but it was very last minute and I wish it would have worked out.
I'm still a little unsure about $600 for a stage, but I guess I'll wait to see what Fiesta Americana charges for the set up and decide then.
I will say that both my contact at the Fiesta Americana and the group sales manager at Mi Casa both recommended Cabomax for our wedding, so they are well known and must be pretty good!
Good luck! Let me know what they say when you finally get in touch with them, especially about pricing!
