How much is your wedding costing you?

Recommended Posts

It seems like yalls budget is where I'm wanting to keep ours as well. so glad to know its doable cheer2.gifI wish me could decide on where to go. wacko.gif My coordinator from DW.com is not been much help, at all.

And I agree with you Gomez, I want amazing pictures, but am wondering if I should take a photog with me or find a local to the resort we choose. What are you planning on doing?

Our budget is around $10,000. The wedding itself includes everything (decoration, officiant, dinner/drinks, flowers, massage/mani/pedi for both etc) is $3900. Our flight will be around $1000. Our stay at the hotel for the week and then the hotel in Cozumel for honeymoon week is $900 for the 2 weeks AI. Photography is $2000. Dress, suit and OOT bags will round it out.

 

Can't wait!

Well we are not sure.. We are gonna ask our friends if they know of a professional photographer.. Also we plan on checking local photographers from Punta Cana and we basically are gonna base our decision on the work, I wanna see as much material as I can..what are you doing planning on doing??

Wow ya thats quite a bit more. I know Excellence though is a nicer hotel. Are you getting a lot of extras or is the wedding package your chose just higher end.

 

I think we're going to be close to $20,000 when its all said and done, but thats also for 2 weeks stay at the hotel.

yeah, we are going to end up close to the 20 mark too i think, but that is two weeks, and including our ahr and legal and everything. I might be able to bring it down... that's the goal anyway! We are including some pretty big items into our total, including FI's stag weekend in Vegas, and my stagette weekend at a spa... and our travel there and we will be there for two weeks (hopefully). So, we'll see if I can keep the costs down!

Unfortunetly, I do not know of any photographers that specialize in weddings.. But asking my family and friends if they know anyone is a great idea, I can't believe I didn't think of that. And I agree, I want to see as much wedding pics from that photog as I can see. I created a folder on my computer and anytime I find wedding pics I like, I save them. I figured this would be easy to hand over to the photog so he/she can get an idea of what we want out of our pictures. I noticed some resorts charge a crazy fee if you hire a local photog so I guess everything will really depend on what location/resort we choose.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
