      That's my plan! I'm quite willing to nix things like a $1000 for a dance floor I think.  After the reception if we really want to go dance, I'd rather go to the club I think.  We'll see though!

        Our budget is way less than 15000.  I think when it is all said and done we will have spent around 7500. Including flights for my fiance and I.  But, we are only having 28 guests at the wedding and we are not doing anything fancy for the reception or ceremony.

              I've looked into renting tiffany chairs from an external supplier and the pricing was much better - $5 each plus tax, no fees!! I've been working with Gabi at planner one events on these. Her rental prices for the huppa and her flower prices all beat the resort prices hands down.

                I have a July 12, 2011 on hold. We plan to spend under 7,000. I'm estimating about 30 guests.

                  I initially thought this to, but then I added it up (roughly)

                   

                  Roughly - Flights 3800 (ish)

                  Package - 3500 ish (strawberry - counting the extra people for the reception)

                  Photographer - 2200 (Sascha Gluck)

                  Say 2000 for assorted other things - my dress was $600, invitations were only about $50 - flowers, welcome bags, any of those unexplained things that come up,

                   

                  Total - 11,500.  I overestimated on everything, since there is always more it seems!

                    do you have to pay a vendor fee for them to come set up?

                       Hey Avens...

                       

                      I see you chose the strawberry passion pkg...  I have a question... to my knowledge that pkg only includes up to 15 people, I was also told it was almost $ 70 / person above that 15, and my guest count will be similar to yours 30-40, (give or take) wondering with what you said your cost was including extra ppl was lower than I expected, am I confused? 

                      Hope you dont mind me asking...

                       

                      Thanks for the insight... Lynn
