Here is what we paid for the cost of the wedding itself:
Private Reception (for 4 hours)…………………..$1000.00
Minister Fees……………………….$250.00
Dancers/Fireater…………………………….$350.00
Huppah……………………………..$250.00
Aisle Runner………………………..$50 to $100.00 (can’t remember exact price)
H’orderves and cocktails on beach…$ 720.00 ($12.00 per person)
Chairs w/satin covers…..….$450.00 (got them at $7.00 per chair- not normally this price)
Day Pass for photog…………………$50.00 (no longer a breach of contract fee- you can bring in any outside photographer that you wish- Nikki confirmed this via e-mail as well)
Steel Band……………………………$150.00 (for 1 hr)
DJ…………………………………….$600.00( for 4 hrs) – he played music throughout the entire reception
Grand TOTAL…………………….$3,870.00

The wedding time was scheduled for 4:00 PM, but did not start until about 4:30PM.

Let me know if you all have anymore questions!

Neema,

I love everything about your wedding!! You looked beautiful!! I will be doing the same wedding colors and I am happy to know that the Riu can provide different color fabrics for the huppa. And for only $250, it beats the fully decorated gazebo. You're the first person I saw that did that, I thought Riu didn't have different colors. I am so excited now!!!!

 

I am thinking of booking the Plantation, in your opinion do you think 2 hrs is enough time? I'm not doing the garter or bouquet toss, and I'm not having any speeches. With that being said, do you think I can squeeze in dinner and dancing in 2 hrs, I don't think we can afford booking the plantation for 4 hrs? Also, where did you get your table runners from? I've been looking everywhere online with no luck.

Thanks so much ! Well MoKe actually the white fabric draped on the huppah was furnished by the RIU. I bought the fuschia and orange fabric at at fabric store. My mother-in-law made all of my table runners for me. I just picked the fabric out and she did the rest. I think 2 hrs would be enough since the Plantation is a buffet(several people can serve themselves at once) and if you don't have all the speeches, garter toss, etc. I think that would be sufficient for dancing and dinner---unless your folks really love to just party! ;-)
