    We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

    We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

      Why do I feel like everyone else's photog expense is so much cheaper than mine? I know I signed Juan up for a trillion hours but even his very basic package was $3,000. I know his prices went up but you got a good deal Sarah for trash the dress and engagement photos. Christa your photog budget was great too.

        I was thinking the same thing! My photog expense is one of the highest things!

          Glenda - I don't remember if it's noted, but I only had Bradley for 4 hours.

            Are you talking about the pp cost for their dinner plate, or something else? The Dreams Tullum and Cancun pricing that I've seen has the dinner at $45-55 pp.... I'd consider doing everything in Cabo if their pricing is that much cheaper! :)

              i think the Dreams PV is like $22 pp for a seated private event dinner - but it just went up to like $26 or something. it's under $30 anyway. that's for the people staying there though - it's more for those staying offsite, and it's also more for a buffet.

                our first wedding date was Dec. 1, 2007 and PV was one of the locations we were considering. I emailed Marilu and she told me $45/pp for each extra person who wasn't included in the base package we purchased.

                Someone's getting a hell of a deal if they're getting it for less than $45 and if we decide on Dreams, I might need some advice on how to negotiate that price!!! :)

                  this is just for a dinner - i am not having my wedding there, only my WD. and $45 does sound right (i think?) if you have a buffet, which is one reason we chose a seated dinner.

                    Attached is my budget - some of the items are estimated costs, I might have guessed high on some of them, but I am also missing a few things that we plan to buy in Cabo (snacks for OOT & containers for sand ceremony).

                    hope this helps!

                      Maria was the $45 for surf and turf or for just a regular meal? That seems pricey? Maybe was she including the fee for the ceremony per person + the fee for the dinner? B/c that would seem to make more sense. I don't know. I know in Cabo it's $24 (I think that's what the price is up to now) for the ceremony set up fee and $24 for the reception set up fee. But if you want surf and turf it's $44 (again I think) but that includes dessert. You can usually talk them down to less if you don't want to include the dessert and just want a cake or something.
