What would your budget be for...

Recommended Posts

Well I am figuring for the 2 of us getting married at the chapel @Grand Wailea with an upgrade photography package, accomodations for 1 week is about $10,000.


But I am sure, when it is all set and done, it will be higher.

I think it's really going to be about how unique this will be. You can get a ceremony at the AIs for cheap. Mine is less than $400 for all that. Will this be in mexico? If it was in the US I could see it being higher. A big appeal to Mexico to me was how much they take care of for you for such little money.


If she plans some really unique events I could see people paying more. But, if it's similar to what the resorts offer, I think there is just too much competition.

Im doing the same kinda wedding. I choose the big package - 1500 and that includes both of our traditional ceremony outfits that we are opting out of! Now that i think of it, I should have bought the middle package.

this was my thought exactly - i counted at least $5000 for the photography alone, so i voted $10,000 to cover the rest of it. i assume this does NOT include the dinner ... so the rest should easily be covered by the remainder after photography.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
