How much is your wedding costing you?

Recommended Posts

What is the name of the tour? We are going to Spain, France, and Italy for our honeymoon and will be spending some time in Florence as well. Any restaurant reccomendations are appreciated too (I am a foodie). Thanks!
The name of the company is Tuscany Bike Toursscany Bike Tours and they were excellent, as you can see on Yelp. Apparently, they have added Vespa scooters now was well! You will also get to do wine and olive oil tastings prior to lunch, which I really enjoyed (the latter, that is). I will look through my travel diaries to see if I made any other notes about travel through Tuscany.

The travel expenses are higher but we all get a vacation in Tuscany too! Our family will leave after a week and we are staying an extra week and traveling up to Portofino and Barolo for our honeymoon.

Here are our costs.

Efffetti Wedding planner in Italy - $1,881
Piazza Comunale Town hall - $1,300
Jay Studio Rome photography - $1,040
Jay Studio videographer - $1,235
Wedding/reception flowers - $630
Enzo Polito Musicians - $1,170
Bottegga del Nobile wine cave reception - $1,560
Wedding attire (both) - $2,375
At home reception (60 people) - $3,915
Travel for 8 - $15,600
Honeymoon - $3,000

Total $33,706

Not bad and about the cost of a wedding at home but we get to be in Italy!!!

 

This is amazing! Congratulations! Sounds like it will be an amazing time for you and your family!!

We ended up spending about $20k for everything. The major costs were the rooms (including our honeymoon) which were $7k so almost half of that amount.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
