What would your budget be for...

Recommended Posts

I am helping out a planner friend and have a question for you if you don't mind answering.

If you were going away to be married - and were going to have about 10 or less guests (or no guests) what would you estimate your max budget to be for these things:

 

 

Ceremony Location Fee

Officiant

Bouquet and Boutonniere

Some flowers on location

Good photographer and album

Small Cake

Champagne Toast

License/Registration/etc Fees Taken care of

 

(Airfare and lodging not included.)

 

What would be the max you would pay if these things were taken care of for you, no stress or research on your part, and all you had to do was send a check and show up?

Our wedding package for up to 10 people including bride and groom includes everything you mentioned plus dinner, but does not include extra bouquets (bride's is included) and photog is around $2600 (extra people are additional). Ceremony is not legal. I have seen some cheaper and some more expensive, but I think somewhere in that range is reasonable.

i think a safe max would be $5000...most resort packages will cover everything on your list for less than $2K except great photog so thats where the majority of the budget would go

I said $10,000 or less because even though it is a small group of people the cost of a good photographer will cost you regardless of how big your wedding is.

$5000 or less if there are only 10 people and travel is not included, many resorts will do it free so that leaves most of that $$ for the other stuff.

I said 5000 or less - our wedding package is free and there is a champagne toast for us included after the ceremony - up to 4 bottles - so I think that will be more than enough - also the cake is $65 for 15 people or less so I figured that in as well - we are trying not to go overboard with the extra's - I have included the most $$ photography package b/c that is not something I want to scrimp on - hope this helps!

Ohhh...I meant to add...this would not be at an all inclusive resort. It would be different places/areas (places where there are no AIs) where the average person would have to go do a lot of trouble to find out what they would need to do to get married and to round up officiants, figure out licensing, etc.

 

I'm not sure if that would make a difference to you - but thought I would mention that.

Mmmm... It will depend on the resort prices. I would say 5000.00, but since it's not an AI it could be 10,000.00. I'm sure they include a package, but you'll just have to talk to them and see what they say.

    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
