    Ok, so I know there are a lot of budget threads out there, but I am more specifically interested in ROR budgets. What are your rooms, flights, ceremony and reception extras, excursions, etc. costing you? How long are you going for and how many guests are you having attend? A lot of people seem to choose ROR for the cost, but is it really a lot less expensive then the other AI resorts?

      The wedding is "free", but is obviously still costing us quite a bit.

      $2700 - Two week AI trip
      $1950 - One week AI trip
      $250 - Ceremony
      $45 - Isle Runner
      $15/person - Beach Reception (we have 130 ppl)
      $500 - Private Reception (only paying because we have over 50 ppl)
      $350 - Flowers (artificial, ordered locally)

      That's our break down so far anyway!

        I will attempt to do this but only have a few things until after the ceremony.

        Trip for two weeks for both of us $5800

        Ceremony $250

        Wedding dress $1050

        Favours $60

        Wedding invites $100

        MOH dress $170

        FH outfit $100

        Hotel night prior to leaving $125

        I still have to add decorations, photography/videography and spa costs.

          The Beach Reception is that for Seagrape? If it is I thought it was $10/pp

            Here's what I have so far:

            4,000 flight, transfers and 5 nights ROR, 5 nights CSS
            250 minister
            1,300 photography/videography (using Michael)
            300 Invitations, std's, postage
            350 Pre-marital counseling
            150 OOT bags
            1,000 budgeted for our clothes (may totally blow this as I havent found a dress yet)
            1,000 for steel drum band, hors dourves, chair covers, etc.

            Total: $8,200

            Will probably be closer to 10,000 once we buys rings and pay to take our guests out for an excursion (prolly Dunn's River?)

            Wow, that's quite a lot more than I had originally thought

                    The 2008 pric for the ceremony is $250, but in 2009 the price is going up to $350. Hope this helps.

                      Totally helps..I thought it was 350, but the other brides that already posted their budgets put down 250, even though they are 2009 brides....just thought i would clarify that and let them know that its 350. not 250.
