    i'm hoping to stay within my 12,000 budget. Hoping!! i'm sure there will be little things that will put us over but it shouldn't be that much.

      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.

          Denise - That amount makes me so happy, I was begining to think I would have to pay into the 20's to have a wedding at a Paradisus!

            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

            Bride & Groom + 38 BOOKED!!!
