Working on the budget for your wedding is very important.
You want to be realistic, set a reasonable budget for yourself, and then try to stick to it!
The first question you must answer is how many guests you will have.
Knowing your guest count is the best starting place to help determine the budget.
As a loose guide, a destination wedding with under 30 guests will cost you $10,000 or under.
And for destination weddings with over 30 guests, you may look at something more like $15,000. However, some great options exist in Mexico, so we’re exploring all-inclusive wedding packages under $10,000 here.
It depends on the wedding venue you choose and their wedding packages, as the savings can add up.
For example, we recently had a couple with 186 guests, and the wedding only cost them $3,900.
If you’re planning a large wedding with 100+ guests, you definitely want to check out the list of our favorite resorts.
A destination wedding can be more affordable than a wedding close to home.
Your final cost will depend on many elements such as decor, food, venues, and how many guests you’ll have.
Most resorts we work with offer wedding packages that include many of these primary elements you’ll want, which helps bring your overall cost down.
And what’s more, you are also getting an in-built honeymoon, a once-in-a-lifetime vacation with your favorite people, and your dream wedding!
Yes! In fact, most of the destination weddings we help plan are held at all-inclusive resorts.
We find all-inclusive resorts offer great benefits for couples and their guests and most of the intricate wedding details are taken care of.
Your guests will also have a great time and not have to pay for food and beverage while they’re enjoying their stay during your destination wedding.
Destination weddings don’t need to be expensive.
In fact, we often find that destination weddings can be a cost-saving alternative to hosting a similarly sized wedding at home.
Most all-inclusive resorts offer comprehensive packages that help to keep costs down and help you bring the wedding of your dreams to life.
We recently updated our list of the best all-inclusive wedding pacakges which can provide a comprehensive breakdown at a number of beautiful resorts.
Yes! The cost of your destination wedding largely depends on your guest count, but you can absolutely host a desitnation wedding for $10,000.
Being realistic (I know, that’s not that fun), if you’re guest count is 50 people or under, you’ll have a better likelihood of planning a wedding under $10K.
If you’re planning a wedding with 100+ guests, it’s more likely that you’ll spend $15,000 or more on your wedding.
It depends! Most resorts require a minimum 3-night stay at the resort, although many of our guests opt to stay for 4 or more nights to turn their trip into a longer vacation.
In the last year, we planned about 85 destination weddings and the average stay was about $1,200 per person for a 4-night stay on average.
That doesn’t include your flights to and from the destination, but often includes your resort stay, taxes, fees, and roundtrip ground transportation to and from the destination airport and resort.
There are endless resorts and packages to choose from. Once you refine your budget and guest list, you can narrow down what wedding venues may fit your wishlist.
From our experience, even though a resort offers an inexpensive wedding package, you want to ensure it will still be high quality.
The list above captures a few of our favorite resorts and wedding packages under $10,000, as we find that’s a sweet spot for a destination wedding.
Our team has also put together a list of the best all-inclusive wedding packages under $15,000 if you want additional resort venue options.
Our goal in working with couples is to find the right mix of comprehensive wedding packages, wedding perks, and an onsite wedding team that can pull off multiple stunning events.
With decades of experience planning hundreds of weddings, our team understands what couples are looking for and how to navigate working with the resorts.
Our dedicated team will work with all your friends and family so you can focus on planning your dream wedding.
