    Hello I have started my wedding planning early because I did not want to run into any problems. But me and my fiance is planning our ceremony in Montego Bay Jamaica. My first choice was Secret but after reading so many reviews I am leaning more toward Iberostar. If any brides on her that has had there wedding what was your budget? Thanks

      I'm at the Iberostar Beach, and my Budget is $14,000. We have 88 people coming so far but I budgeted for 100 just in case. This price includes my Dress ($2000) and the bride and groom trips there (free since we are bringing so many guests), and the ceremony, private dinner, OOT bags, flowers, makeup and hair, extra suitcases, decor (chair sashes, table runners, and fake jewels), mento band, DJ, and about a thousand for miscellaneous costs.

          May I ask about the budget for the guests?  I am planning my wedding, and I'm not set on a location (Jamaica, Mexico, etc) I just am looking for a nice resort, but it is more my friends and family that I need to make sure it isn't too expensive for.  


          Do you know how much it costs for one of the guests? (Sorry to ask)

            We are going to Jamaica, and the cost per guest from Edmonton, AB, Canada is 1800/person. Mexico is much more cost effective than Jamaica, and you get about the same quality. We just wanted to go somewhere that a lot of our guests hadn't been before.


            Cuba is pretty cheap too (although not sure about going there if you are from the States). We went to the Iberostar Varadero there last year for a wedding and it was STUNNING and quite cheap (1350 per person). But we've been to pretty shitty resort there before so read reviews first!
