    Planning a budget for a destination wedding. I have not picked a resort yet and I was wondering if any Brides to Be or Wives would be able to give me any tips or suggestions on how to plan a wedding budget? I wanted to also asked what you all paid for your weddings at different Cancun / Riviera Maya resorts?

     

    Some questions:

    What was your rate?

    What did guests have to pay?

    What was the wedding costs?

    How much did you spend on invitations and STD?

    How much did the OOT bags cost?

    Was cocktail, dinner, drinks additional charge? How much?

    Flowers, cake, decorations extra cost?

     

    Any little budget information about the resort you chose would help alot in creating a budget and also choosing my wedding resort :)

     

    Thank you all so much! I appreciate all this information so much!

        Hi!

        As photographer, I can tell you that some resorts request a fee for any external provider you will choose. It is not very fair because you will have a to pay if you don’t like what the hotel proposes,

        So  before choosing  a resort, ask for the external provider policy and check what they propose!

         

        To choose a location for your wedding, visit as well

          Hola tulumbride2013, and Congrats! on your wedding coming up :) I agree with Pierre - it's a good idea to check the outside vendor policies of the resort you're considering. We always encourage our brides to spend the extra money it takes for a professional photographer to capture their magical wedding "moments that matter"! 

           

          Too often the resort's in-house photographer (that comes with the pkg) is not well trained - or equipped - or capable of doing the job you would like to have done - to commemorate this irreplaceable + priceless day - starting off your lives together!
