    Budgets

    Quote:Originally Posted by jennifer8913 We have a budget of $10K, and I found a good budget tool on the knot. I really lucked out on my dress, about $500 including the alterations so that def helped out! Hey there! I had a 10K budget but it has gotten way too expensive. We are looking at 18K with taxes (18% way too much), fees, 50 guests, airfare, etc. My gma is paying for my dress which is a huge help! I am even considering changing resorts at this moment. Do you mind sharing, How much is your wedding package costing you and how many guests do you have?

    Quote:Originally Posted by futuremrssteen Hi ladies! Excited to see you wedding date got confirmed, Liz! I'm about to send in the contract as soon as my finances lawyer friends check it out. About how long did it take to confirm once you sent it in? Also, Lauren had told me 4pm was the ceremony time available, but I saw you have 6 a so is it either 4 or 6? I honestly might switch the day just to get a letter time since it will be hot hot hot in July lol. Michelle Hey!! Congrats... I am very excited for you! Yes, I am currently booked for August 23rd at 6pm. Our ceremony is at the garden and the reception at the Olympus. Have you checked the photography rates? They are crazzzzzzzy expensive! I may go with the Big Package. I am still considering the videography package... oh boy lots to plan Let me know what are your FA's friends advise Happy Planning, Liz
  6. Hi! I am having second thoughts and getting cold feet LOL! My fiancé and I already put a deposit on a different resort but we are now entertaining DPB (which was our 2nd choice). Can any of you please share a rough budget for your Ultimate and/or Love Packages? I was just looking at the packages and you get way much more in DPB than in other resorts. Also, can you have an official ceremony at DPB or does it have to be symbolic? Any info or PDF's that you may have will be truly appreciated. Thank you, Liz.
  7. Hey chicas!!! Can anyone please send me the Arrecife prices? I seem to have misplaced that doc and prob deleted that e-mail . Thank you
  8. Yep! I second that. Tall centerpieces will go perfect with that location. LOL @ the brochure, I think that is a great idea. I was thinking about posting all that info on my website but having a brochure may be better for guests. Happy Planning, Liz
  9. Sorry! I sent the wrong post and I am not sure how to delete it!
  10. Hello, Congratulations!! I am also getting married next year in Agust 23rd. My fiancé and I looked at various resorts and countries prior deciding on PC. I have not visited the resort myself but this forum is extremely helpful. I chose PPR b/c it matched our wedding vision and also because I have family traveling form South America who will not need a visa. I also have a friend who stayed at the PPR a few years ago and she was in love with the resort and service. Also, I am currently working with a TA who has helped me to narrow down my search, and I will truly recommend doing that if you are in that process. All in all I freaked out when I saw a few bad reviews in Trip Advisor, but I just think that overall the resort has more positive reviews than negative ones. I have the prices for the different packages, etc. PM me your e-mail and I can send them to you. Relax and enjoy your planning. Liz
  11. I love this post! THANK YOU! You couldn't have put it better. I was very concerned when I saw a bad review in Trip Advisor back in January and I remember you putting some ease on my mind, which I truly appreciate!! We have now picked our date for next year and are very excited about the process. We are also pretty laid back and out main focus is having a great time with family and friends. Bes of Luck, Liz

  13. OMG Congratulations and THANK YOU for sharing!!! Best of Luck.
  14. Hello, congrats to you as well. We are in the begging stages of our planning and I was originally very excited about holding the wedding at the Olympus lol (of course until I asked for the pricing list) but I just received the PDF with all upgrade costs. The Olympus is $18,840 (chill out package, location & fee with taxes included) and it hold 200-450 ppl. Now, I am looking at the Apolo Ballroom ($4,680) and I am entertaining the extra cost; I am just not a big fan of the carpet. The Olympus terrace, which is complimentary, seems to be a pretty nice location as well. Ideally I would like to hold my reception indoors, so who knows…aghh decisions, decisions! Best of Luck, Liz

    That is great! Thank you so much. I will check it out tonight. Sometimes I wish I had taken any Photoshop courses or something like that as Paint and Power Point were no help haha. I know what I want, I just wish I can put it together myself. I set up a budget of 500 for my STD's and invitations and hopefully I will stick to it today. Also, I totally agree with you! These forums are extremely helpful. I've learned so much from other brides in these past 6 mos. It has saved me time and $$. Regarding to the wedding site, I created it yesterday at Wedding Wire, I found a few more options regarding backgrounds there. It looks awesome! but I was working on it all day yesterday'; I gotta do a Spanish and English version for everything . I was even thinking about saying my vows in English and have them written down in Spanish for all my Spanish speaking guests. Liz
