Thank you so much for sharing!! Great breakdown and information, very helpful. Sounds like you got an amazing deal and value too. My wedding will be in Panama and I think, so far, it seems I can get more for my money there than what I’d get in the States — plus all the great culture and exotic touches.  

Just curious – did you also have like a welcome dinner or day after brunch or lunch that you had to pay for? Did you pay for any transportation (cars, airport transfer, etc) for guests?

Wow you got such a great deal, its sounds awesome. Im getting married in the Riviera in September and our package is currently at $5000 for 7 of us not including the cost of the trip. Im feeling slightly ripped off:(..  What hotel did you stay at if you dont mind me asking? Xx

@cbgg:  What resort was this?  How much did it cost per couple per night to stay at the resort?  And, the additional stuff you mentioned at the bottom, like photographer, etc – was that in addition to the $8k?  What about your dress and stuff?  Just curious to see how much everything cost you total bc I’m really debating b/w an intimate DW and an intimate at-home wedding.  Would appreciate all the info you may have, thanks!!

Oh and pix!

@cbgg:  This may seem like a silly question… how do you deal with placecards for a DW? Do you do them all at home and throw them and the seating chart in your suitcase? What if the suitcase gets lost? 


I ask because I am having a sort of DW wedding (my hometown is a 2 hr plane ride for me), most of the stuff is already there, but I wasn’t sure what I would do about the placecards since they need to be done a week or two before

@nawella:  why don’t you put the placecards in your carryon.

that way, just in case your suitcase gets lost, you will have them.

@cbgg:  Thanks so much, that is really helpful.  I too am pretty sure I’m set on Mexico, and I’m wondering what percentage of guests did you have show up?  I polled my friends and everyone seems really into it but I’m wondering if people will drop off as the day gets closer, especially when they see the cost.  I hate that at first an all-inclusive resort looks to be like a huge expense but if you break it down it is actually reasonable.

I am having my destination wedding in Isla Mujeres, an island off Cancun. I live in California and am wondering if you had any issues changing your name where you live?
