hi @LoLoJabs - welcome to BDW! that budget is totally doable. most brides have gone with the a la carte pricing, bringing many of their own decorations. The bringing your own is really where the savings is - depending on how much you have to bring or want to bring with you. If you choose a really elaborate decor, and piece it together from Lomas the costs will add up ($5 per chair cover, $5 per table cloth, etc.)
the Memorable moments packages are just the decor - you still have to pay for the cocktail or dinner to have a private reception on top of that. as Murmel said, you can pick and choose pieces of the Memorable moments - flowers or centerpieces or ceremony decor or chair covers or all of it.
I also agree with @jcook123 - more is less quite honestly. the settings are beautiful, and you don't need a ton of additional decor (unless that's what you envisioned!). don't feel pressured to do a chandelier and flowers out the wazoo if that really isn't what you want.
Have you visited the Lomas Wedding planning site? It has all the prices for the pieces, as well as more details on Memorable Moments.
Hello past and future brides of EDR! We just booked our wedding for 12/11/15 and couldn't be more ovewhelmed. We just received our first email from Marisol and it feels like there is just too much information up front. Our current package is "Always and Forever" my question is, do most people start wtih this package and build their wedding from scratch? Do you save money doing it this way versus choosing a memorable moments wedding package? I really like the look of the Pure Glamor package but it seems like most of the cost is in the ceremony decor? What we really want is a basic wedding ceremony, a private reception and a good photographer. Our budget is about $10-$12K as we are planning an AHR as well...is this doable with a group of 20-30?
