final cost wedding on budget

Recommended Posts

We are doing it pretty basic in a couple weeks... we didn't book a block of rooms, but rather negotiated a deal where the guests who wanted to book in our group had until a certain date to do so and take advantage of a good price. As well, since we found a great deal on the bridesmaid dresses and groomsman attire, they paid for it themselves. We made OOT bags, but found good deals where possible. When all is said and done, we will spend about $11,500- $12,000 which includes wedding ceremony, private reception, preferred club honeymoon suite for 2 weeks, all guest favors, invitations, save-the-dates, attendant gifts... everything! My parents are paying for the AHR, and that will cost about $1500-$2000 MAX.

I had 52 guest an a good estimate just for ceremony, reception, cocktail hour, DJ, lighting, bouquets, cake and it does not include centerpieces was about 12k. I saved my bringing my own centerpieces, rose petals, favors to name a few.

We haven't sat down and figured out how much exactly everything will cost b/c there is so much that we will have to wait and see (i.e gifts, attire etc..).

Right now for the wedding, all inclusive trip (2 weeks) and one week for the 2 kids we're looking at about $7k, but we're already down $1k as we get a kick back for every 21persons that book with our TA.

Figure between added costs down there, the gifts for guests/bridal party/groom attire rings etc .. we're looking at another $3-$4k.

All my invitations/STD were done DIY so they didn't cost anything (got material from work)

AHR hopefully will not be any more than $3.

So I guess we can expect to pay about $15, 000. Hopefull we can make it less than that :)


Cheers and happy planning

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
