Are you absolutely set on having your wedding day on a Saturday?

That's weird about the 6pm wedding. I haven't heard of that before. I feel like the rules change with each bride at DPA.

I am going to have my wedding @ DPA on June 18, 2011..I just emailed Jacy about it with my info.

 

Here is the email from Jacy:

"We are glad to inform you that the wedding date is available as follow:

Wedding Date : June 18th , 2011

Time: 17:00 hrs (An extra $55usd will apply for ceremonies after 5pm)"

 

So, now I'm confused, but I will just go with the 55 since i am not sure which package I want!

I agree with Ginalyn- seems like the rules change with every DPA bride. I got married on Feb 27th at 5pm and by 6ish it was getting quite dark. I had the Ultimate Package but did not have to pay extra $$ for my specific time. I wanted a sunset reception and dusk pictures and that time work well for us. Not sure about the timeline of when the sun sets in May but I'd maybe check that out. Just an FYI since I got married later in the day too.

Also, for the reception it says there that we can only pick one appetizer, one soup, one main coursehuh.gif? That doesn't make sensehuh.gif

Are you doing a welcome/rehearsal dinner? Does anyone have a budget spreadsheet that would be willling to sharehuh.gif I'm trying to figure out my budget and i'm so confused!

Thanks

Real Simple magazine has a wedding PDF budget sheet. Just got to the Real Simple web page.

Well I'm just back from DPA so here's the small details I can add. If you're having a reception AT 5pm then I don't think you have to pay the additional fee but if you're having a ceremony LATER than 5pm (say at 6pm like you wanted) then you might have the extra fee although I'm not sure why.

 

It sounds like you got a date now that you're happy with so that's awesome! As for picking a package, you don't really have to decide on that right away so you can wait and see how many people you end up booking and that might help work out your costs. We went with the most basic package (Wedding in Paradise I think?!) for which there was no cost and then paid for our reception meal separately. It was $25 per person, all plated (with GREAT service) and included a salad, soup, main course and dessert (separate from our cake) and all our guests seemed happy with the quantity. White and red house wine were served all through dinner, as well as any drinks that guests wanted to order. We had 33 people in total and didn't hear of anyone else going for buffet afterwards wink.gif

 

Finally, I've got a couple different budget spreadsheets I think on my work computer but I won't have access to them for another day or so (yay for time off still!) but will try to get them posted soon!

Meghan! Congrats on your wedding! And thanks for the advice! I do feel a little better!
Although i had a rough day today, both people who complained about my original resort - Zoetry - being too expensive (and that's why I am changing to DPA) - one bridesmaid just backed out from the wedding party, and her husband is FI's best man, so they will still be going. And the other couple, who both are on wedding party, just emailed me saying they don't know if they will come since they are also getting married next year...

But, yes, I feel better with what you said, and I'm looking forward to your spreadsheet!
My email is daniela.1217@yahoo.com just in case

Congrats Daniela on picking a date! Sorry to hear about your wedding party drama. Sometimes it seems like bridesmaids are more work then they are worth... I'll let you know if I still that way after the wedding.

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
