I am a little discouraged by the fact that after you exceed 20 people, you have to pay a per person fee at an all inclusive establishment.
PM me if you'd like
Thanks a bunch

We expect to spend an additional $10,000.00USD or so before it's all over, but for the same reason, we have 41 guests at this point and we have to pay extra per person for cake, buy an additional bottle of Champagne for every 6 additional guests over 20...
Now that we've hit the magic number 40, we have to pay for a private restaurant. Since we are paying for the restaurant, Future Hubby said, let's go ahead and get a DJ and have the dances and toasts and tosses, etc.

We are spending
$3500 for travel (including the flight for my MOH)
$5100 for the wedding/private reception including
-Reception dinner/drinks 15 additional guests (over the 20)
$5300 on everything else including
-my attire (2 dresses)
-really nice invitations
-save the date
-gifts for our guests (beach towels)
-gifts for wedding party
I'm sure there are few things that we will need here and there. We also agreed if we wanted things extra for our attire that wasn't in the budget we would get it on our own...we both have spent quite a bit extra in this area which is not included in our calculation. We are estimating we will have around 35-40 guests. We have 22 booked so far and we are getting married in November.
Hope this helps

http://www.michaelsteingard.comMichael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

I hope that I am able to cut down on cost that way. I am going to start working on my Budget so that I can have a realistic understanding of all the expenses.
