💲 How much do Sayulita wedding venues cost?

Destination weddings are costly. You already know that. I hate to break it to you but it won’t be that much cheaper compared to having a wedding in the US.

The wedding costs in Sayulita depend on many factors like the number of guests, catering, etc – there is a huge list to take care of and normally, wedding planners and event companies in Sayulita won’t really give a fixed quote.

You will have to sit down with your planner but the trick is to tell him/her about the money you are willing to spend for your wedding.

We had the chance to do an event at Don Pedro Palapa and the cost of the venue (just the place) is US$3,000 for 3 hours (150 pax limit).

  4. Hi Trisha
    loved your top 12 places for a wedding above.
    My fiance and I are planning to get married on Nov. 5th.
    We can use some advise on venues, planning, etc…
    We loved Sayulita when we were there last year and thought why not there.
    We are also open to maybe Cabo.
    Our wedding isn’t a traditional wedding. It is a quick ceremony and a chill party with friends so we don’t need chairs and a big backdrop.
    Anything you can offer to help us would be appreciated.
    Thank you 🙂
