I used Jennifer Hatton for my desserts. Contact her. I think I spent around $500 for cupcakes, and the other desserts that we offered, but I am sure that she can whip something up for you.

I am totally going to get a cheap cake, have it frost and sprinkle flowers on it! What a good idea!
I almost forgotâ€¦the night before my wedding we are hosting a welcome fiesta on the private terrace at Marina Fiesta. Because we have enough rooms booked there, Iâ€™m sure they wonâ€™t charge us. There are already tables and we will have to do the rest. I plan to use plates/linens/and flatware from the hotel.
We are having a slideshow. Iâ€™ve checked around for renting a projector and the cheapest I found (through Maye) is $300. So, my FI was looking on Ebay and Craigslist and found some in the $150 - $200 range. Weâ€™ll save money and then sell it.
BUTâ€¦there is the whole food issue. I plan on going to Costco and buying several cases of wine and beer (and some coolers to keep them in). Then Iâ€™m going to El Toro (this is a little taco stand in DT Cabo that has the BEST TACOS) and ordering like a hundred tacos.
Iâ€™m not sure what to do for side dishes/appetizersâ€¦.I know chips and salsa. But what else is easy? I have a kitchen at out timeshare (no oven though ). Any ideas?
I even contacted the Lazy Gourmet catering company. But no word back. Maybe they were scared by my $10 - $12 pp budget? LOL!

I think most have brought their own decor with them.
And any type of open bar is not being cheap, IMO!

I'm keeping flower costs down by using silk and transporting them -- no flowers for the guys -- myself and BM only.
Making and bringing all of our centerpieces as well (simple and under $5 each).
Got a great deal on my dress and got my TTD dress for a steal on eBay.
Bringing our iPod and renting only speakers instead of a DJ (but really so we can listen to what WE want and not what a resort DJ has available)
Made STD and invites on our own saved us literally HUNDREDS of dollars.
Our budget is $15K and we should be right on target -- hopefully!
