I am very glad to join the community here. I am in the midst of planning my own wedding set tentatively for April 2016 in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.
Duration of our stay would be 5 days and 4 nights as my fiance cannot get anymore days off. Not planning to have anything too formal and all-inclusive resorts are not our thing. Our top two priorities are Food and Photography. Decor would be minimal, especially when you have the ocean as your background.
Through my research and price quotes I am getting discouraged that planning a destination wedding with under 20 guests is not possible for my small budget of $5000 - $10000. (Everyone is pretty much paying their own flights and accommodations to get there).
Just wondering if any other brides were able to pull this off with that amount. I am looking to have a semi-private to private beach ceremony.
The reception could either be at the same venue or at a villa where my family and I would be staying at (this means we would need to hire catering)
If not we could all just go out to a nice restaurant to have dinner?
Any feedback or advice would be greatly appreciated!
