      I have a budget of $20 000 for 50 guests for a destination wedding in Punta Cana. Looking at all the posts, sounds like my budget is reasonable! Need to start saving now.

                our goal is not to go over $20,000 half of what we would've probably spent having a wedding at home!

                  We have budgeted 20K.  Which, includes our flight and accommodations for both our wedding hotel and honeymoon hotel (2 weeks).  That is where the majority of our money is going.  The wedding itself, along with OOT bags, deep sea fishing, etc...for 21 people is fairly inexpensive in comparison to doing it at home.  Totally worth it to get to party with our families for a week and a week on our own.

                    We had 32 people total (including bride and groom)

                    total wedding costs (at the Jellyfish Restaurant): approx $5,700 (this included flowers, food, open bar, fire dancers, decorations/set up, dj and an outside dancefloor area in the sand)

                    total travel costs for bride and groom (with travel insurance @ Majestic Elegance)  approx $3,300 for one week (i think, i could be off on this)

                    dress, shoes, earrings, hairflower (DIY), alterations approx $850

                    suit and alterations approx $250

                    extras such as OOT bags, programs, signs $250

                    total approx $10,350

                    does not include honeymoon which we *hope* to take later this year, although a week in Punta Cana was nice :)

                    There were a few things I overlooked that ended up costing us a little more and our group was not too big, which helped with the budget (we invited only immediate family and close friend s and many invited were not able to attend)



                     

                     

                    Your wedding budget sounds a lot of what I want mines to be.. Is there any tips you can give me considering to cut down the budget as much as we can but still not depriving us or our guest? I love the open bar, Dj included and still under a terrific amount.. Thank you so much for breaking it down the way you did, it really helps..my email is egomez02@hotmail.com for any help you would like to share :)) hope you had a blast on your wedding

                      I would like to keep our budget from $10000-$15000.. That's including food, decors, liquor, entertainment, our stay at the resort, his suit and maybe my dress.. The photography is where I'm willing to splurge a bit more simply b/c I want jaw dropping pictures, is our only memory to look back and I want them flawless even if it's a little pricey which FI is not so happy about 😁 that...this is deff better and cheaper then planning a wedding at home..
