Maybe we won't have to pay the outrageous fee of $600 just to have someone marry us? We planned on having a friend do it since we are just doing a symbolic wedding. So i'm about to hit the 6 month mark of our wedding, and its kinda making me nervous. I feel like there is so much to do and I haven't really done anything. I've got my dress and photographer booked, but now I feel like I'm just waiting for people to actually start booking then I can go from there, like gettting started on OOT bags and stuff. Summer brides, where are you at in the planning process?
I'm glad you pointed that out - I booked the Classic in April as well, but am paying to add a bunch of guests for my wedding in Jan. The new classic includes 5 more guests for the package price (which is the same) and a bunch more inclusions like officiant, etc. I did notice there is a new note that you have to purchase $85 day passes for non-resort guests, but afterdoing the math, it still seems like the new package is a better deal. After I saw your post I emailed my coordinator to see if I could have that pricing (my payment is due next week). Have not heard back, but will let you know when I do.
And in response to your comment about the planning process, my RSVPs were due October 15, and up until this week I have still had people change their response. I am 6 weeks out and won't be able to completely knock out gift bags, escort cards, etc. until next week. I think you're probably in good shape!
