We really don't want to go too much higher than that. I am glad to hear that you think it is feasible.
One other issue I am considering is the cost for our guests. They would be paying their own way, but I was wondering if it extremely expensive at the Paradisius Palma Real Punta Cana and the Majestic Colonial Punta Cana. So far, I think the lowest price they have is a little over $900/night. Is this how much it worked out to for your guests? I'm a bit troubled by this, because not everyone we're inviting is rolling in dough.
Well, any extra input you all could share with me would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance and happy planning to all!
I spent about $30 per OOT bag, but i one a college football pool last year so i used some of the money i won to do the OOT bags. It worked out good since fi was complaining about me spending money on the bags so i just said "I won this money and i'm using this much on the bags so there" and that was it. You could definately do really nice oot bags a lot cheaper. You could buy nice paper gift bags and glue your logo on the front of it and fill it with stuff from Oriental trading and bags of snacks and your guests would love it. Of course you don't have to do oot bags. No one will be expecting them. Oh and i did one per couple not one person, it they were single they got their own bag.
Dont forget to budget things like attendant gifts, if you can get away with not having them that would solve that issue. Your wedding attire. That stuff really adds up.
