Hey there,

 

You can take a look at some of my pics on the ROR Pictures thread. Here is what I spent:

 

Free Wedding Package ($250)

White wooden chairs: $105 ($5/ea)

Upgrade to flowers on site and bouquet: $300

Hair: $80

Open Bar @ Seagrape: $230

Steel Band for 1hr: $250 (pretty sure it was $250, not $350)

Caprice Photo Pkg: $180

$50 additional photos: $400

Total: $1795

Tips not included . . .

 

The only thing I would have differently - get the band for another hour!

im glad i started this thread too because you guys have already been so helpful as far as providing me with quotes. twelve piece, although you're now married PLEASE don't leave the forum. i feel like you may be able to help me a lot as far as getting this thing under a wrapped budget.

im excited but worried as far as this whole budget crisis and money spending thing goes.
The band played a lot of Bob Marley songs, but I'm sure they take requests! Everyone in Jamaica is extremely accommodating.

Flowers- beverly@beverlysspecialevents.com

Don't stress about the budget too much- you can have your dream day on any budget. Our budget was 6k and we ended up spending closer to 8k- but that includes EVERYTHING. Dresses(me and BMS), rings, 10 days in Jamaica, gifts, tips, excursions, OOT bags, professional photography ....... you just have to decide whats the most important

I will definitely email your Mom and friend. I'm trying to keep it low cause I'm not trying to ask the family for money, complicated situation as far as my parents go. So... thank you again!
