    Hi all
    I am due to marry in feb2009 I am just trying to work out roughly how much this is going to cost so can add to budget. Basically I have 20 guests, I am on the 4pm slot for wedding. I have booked royal package, In addition I would like:
    1 bridesmaids bouqet,
    I am bringing own flowergirl baskets and petals,
    I need 2 further buttonholes for ushers,
    I would like chair covers and a blue sash for my guests.
    I would also like the aisle runner.
    I have 45 minutes of photography included but would like that to be a further hour and then I would like an hour of pics at the reception.
    I would like all pics on a cd and would like roughly 50 for an album.
    I am having the free meal at mammee bay
    I would then like the seagrape with dj, decorated tables and chairs (no food thou)
    I also would like the videographer for 1 hour during the ceremony.

    A question I also have is, I am there from 27th jan till 10th March, we get married the 2nd, How long do you wait forpics, will I be able to take them with me or do I have to wait for them to be sent? I am having a reception when I get home so would love them for that. I also need the dvd for then as playing it to our guests.

    Sorry its a long one but if anyone can help pleaseeeee it will be much appreciated. I am getting so nervous I have 5 months yet.

      I can't help you with all the prices but can give you a rough estimate for some stuff.

      - My bouquet was roses and orchids. It was $110. My bridesmaid's bouquet was a smaller version of mine, $65. Boutenieres were single roses, $10 each.
      - Chair covers, I didn't have them but have heard of them costing between $12-$15/chair. So for 20 people that would be $240-$300
      - Aisle runner $40ish

      Sorry I can't help with photography, videography or seagrape as we didn't look into these options.

      Honestly, I recommend booking the free package and paying for the upgrades you want. That will give you some extra money to play around with for stuff you really want like the reception!

        Thank you, Yes I am considering that as a lot such as the spa treatments etc I wont require, It seems more of a plan to just pay for all items I want on top of free package.
