I've seen that Maye is a pretty good coordinator from all the posts, but can we just use the coordinator at the hotel (Erica I think) or is it better to have an outside one as well? Thanks again for all your great advice! I don't know what I would have done if I didn't find this site.

i got married at dreams and used ericka, maye, and marianna...you may want to just start with ericka since your wedding is small and if gets too large or unmanageable you can hire another coord...there is so much info here and so many dreams brides that i am sure you will have no problem!

    Thanks! We're really trying to stay on a small budget - we're looking to buy a house and would rather have the money go into that. So many decisions!

    we were in the same boat...we want to buy a bigger house..

    i had over 50 guests and did it for $14,000 BUT that included:

    our travel costs
    welcome dinner for over 50
    reception for over 50
    sailing trip
    invitations
    OOT bags

    if you have a wedding at AI for 20 people i bet you can keep it under $5000

      The AI is one of the reasons we picked Cabo over Hawaii. We were worried about the costs of food and drinks for everyone, but at an AI it's pretty much all covered for the most part. What company did you use for the sailing trip? That's something my dad would love...

      Thanks!

          We were thinking about Hawaii at first (my parents have a condo there and some family goes every summer) but decided against it when we realized that Cabo is only a 2 hr flight from LA. This makes is easier for planning and for guest to attend with out having to take off a week from work.
