The Mexican Donkey is $200 for 1 hour, includes 12 bottles or cans of beers. It's listed here, under "Entertainment", and "Performances" http://www.weddingsb...l.com/planning/
Or you can do it as part of a standing cocktail, and from what I can tell those are priced based on the food (and include 2 hours of open bar).
The packages for the wedding itself are pretty set from what I understand. Here's the PDF on the Maroma packages: http://www.weddingsb...rado_Maroma.pdf
The packages all come with dinner reservations for the group. It's semi-private, and in one of the restaurants. If you want a private dinner/reception, then the price is based on the price per plate and are found in the banquet guide: http://www.karismaho...anquetKit_0.pdf
For instance, we're going to do a Pick & Choose dinner, so we'll choose 1 appetizer, 2 entrees and 1 dessert for our guests. We'll have our guests tell us which entree they want (45 days ahead of the trip), and our price will be based on those numbers. So if 10 pick lobster & filet, and 10 pick chicken, it's 10 x 26 + 10 x 22. There are also buffet options and such in the banquet guide.
Then for the centerpieces, etc, you'll need to consult the Lomas Weddings site. They have categories for flowers (centerpieces), table decorations, linens, etc. For instance, they charge $4 per chair cover, and $4 per chair bow (yes!! $8!!!). hence why I'm bringing my own chair bows lol

Hope that helps answer some of your questions!

Questions for you guys:
Does anyone know the cost for the Mexican Donkey? I havent been able to find or keep missing it in the info.
Anyone planning a wedding of 35-50? Im looking at what they offer informs of packages and its looking it will be quite expensive since we can't used the wine room. Anyone know if you get credit for the first 20 and then pay the private plating fee? I was told bt Natalia that we cant have the Sabores for the reception and will have to do a beach reception. She also said because its a smaller resort they dont cater to larger groups. I didnt think 35 was that large. Im expecting 35 but only saying 50 if more people decide they are in. I wanted a smaller resort so it was more intimate and better for the elderly guests (not as much walking) Im very confused at how much the reception will cost me with that many guests and decorated tables. Anyone know? Any sugestions for saving $ at the resort? Natalia seems to be set in stone for all the pricing and nothing can be exchanged (eg blood tests for flower or food credit) I honestly bought into the whole destination weddings are free so we really did not save much beyond the largest package.
Goodluck everyone with their planning!
