Is 50 guests considered a small wedding?

Anything between 20 and 80 guests is usually defined as a small wedding. 

Weddings with 50 guests will usually include your closest friends and family. 

These weddings boast an intimate charm where you can celebrate with your nearest and dearest in style.

How much does the average wedding cost in Mexico?

The average cost of a destination wedding largely depends on several factors, including how many guests attend and the level of decor you want.

We generally find that our clients spend between $15,000-$20,000 on their destination wedding.

We’ve had couples spend $0, and other couples spend $300,000+ so it really depends on your dreams and budget. 

Remember: It’s your day and your budget so do what’s best for you!

Are weddings in Mexico more affordable than in the US? 

As a general rule of thumb, destination wedding packages in Mexico are far more affordable than domestic weddings in the US. 

Of course, this entirely depends on the venue, location, and number of guests. 

Destination weddings tend to have fewer guests and all-inclusive packages which offer exceptional value for money.

How do you plan a wedding on a budget of $15,000?

Planning a destination wedding and sticking to your budget really starts with identifying the right package for you. 

If a package starts at $12,000 and doesn’t include DJ, photography or videography, it may not be suitable for you.

Alternatively, the allure of a $950 package may be really appealing. 

But remember that means you’ll be doing everything a la carte so it will start to add up quickly.

All the resorts our team works with have a dedicated wedding planner who will help with the design, planning, and coordination of your event so they’ll help you navigate how to stretch your budget the furthest. 

How much does a wedding cost for 50 guests?

Your wedding cost will depend on the guest list, venue, dining options, and entertainment.

If you plan to have 50 guests, you can expect to spend between $5,000 and $15,000.

Can I add more guests?

Yes! Many of the packages include a certain guest count, but for an additional fee, you can add extra guests, which is incredibly common for couples. 

For example, if the package includes 20 guests and you have 50 guests, you’ll pay a fee (typically around $150-$200 per person) for each additional guest.

If you think you’ll have a larger guest list, you may want to consider packages that are better suited for large destination weddings.
