    I am having a destination wedding in Cancun Mexico, May 2016. Looking for a reasonable price for a photographer/ videographer, Mariachi band and a fire dancer. If anyone has a good contact person for these, please let me know.


    I received a few quotes, but I am looking to spend around $200-300 for fire show for about 20- 25 minutes give or take just to give the guest an experience


    For a Videographer and Photographer i would like to stay around $500 each if possible


    and a reasonable price for a Mariachi band 



    We don't have any of these individuals yet and every time we get a quote it's way over our budget. We are paying for our wedding ourselves and have spent over 3 years saving for this moment. We would love to have all these things. 


    If you know of anyone in mexico that you would recommend please let me know.

      @weddingcancun2016 where is your wedding taking place? I must be honest I am not sure where you can get the following in those prices.


      • photographer  for elopement maybe $500 usd for 2 hours session just to give you an idea
      • Videographer  I work with a number of them. I have never seen anyone charge the price for videograpeher . for how many hours do you need them?
      • Mariachi Mariachi for a 45 min $350 usd 
      • Fire Show also depend on how many people you have doing the show.

      some tips: if your budget is tight, I would definitely cut out videographer, have you checked if one of your guests has a good eye to capture the video. so you can save on that?

      weigh out what is more important and then take it from there.

      @weddingcancun2016  Welcome to BDW!


      Wow - that's a very tight budget for sure. I've been on this site for a long time and had quotes for Jamaica where we got married and for Mexico last October when we renewed our vows and I have to agree with Joyce of @dreamweddings  I've never seen rates as low as what you're looking for. You might be able to get just ceremony coverage for that amount, maybe 2 hours tops. Same with a videographer. You're looking at an awful lot more than $500. Joyce had a good suggestion - is there a family member that might be good with a video camera that could help out?


      I don't know anything about fire dancers or mariachi bands so I'm sorry I can't be of any help with that.


      Good luck! Keep us posted on how things go.

      I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

        Ya most wedding photography packages are around $1000US and may or may not include getting ready sessions with the Birde,

        Videography, although sounds wonderful, is expensive and usually doesnt turn out like you hope it would.
