During the first half of the year, the average destination wedding organized by YucatanLove was $52,200 USD.
This cost includes a banquet, drinks, cake, photography, video, flowers, lighting, music, transportation, planning…. and more! The number of guests ranges from 50 to 200 people and there are Haciendas that vary in cost since they can have several events on the same day.
Weddings $35,000 to $45,000
