We will have a dinner in one of the restaurants (and I realize it will not be a private dinner, and that's ok with us) at the Riu Palace Macao. There is no set up fee (that I am aware of---I have asked my coordinator and she said that there was none). Thanks so much for everyone's help!

It will depend on how the budget comes along... we'll see. But we have about 15000 dollars, so if I can keep the budget under that, I can use the extra to pay for the guests rooms.
I'm not announcing it though for a while, until I get closer and make sure my budget can cover it.
Since I'm never going to pick a place anyway, it doesn't matter...

As for the budget thread, I am extremely simple and practical. We have about $12K to spend if we want to on travel/wedding/reception. My plan is to spend about $4K on a 10 day AI stay, and at most $5K for the rest (including attire, but not including rings). I was an art major in college, so a lot of stuff I can do myself like flowers, altho transporation is the issue there, as well as invites, monograms, table cards, place cards, etc... Since the photography is a large portion of the budget, I'm torn between loading my equipment and even doing that myself with a tripod for the formal photos and then just have family take the ceremony/reception photos for us.
I think it can be done, it just depends on how many people you expect to have at the wedding and how fancy you want it. We're having about 30 people and since I'm not in too much of a rush, if we don't have all the money to do things the way we want, we'll just postpone for awhile...

Plus, I was just instant messaging with a friend of mine, and she was pointing out that most people end up paying for flights/hotels to go to weddings in the states anyway, like she lives in San Fran, and even friends getting married nearby in the wine country require a hotel you know?
