    I live in the Dulles area and will be traveling with 3 kids...HELP ME haha. Hopefully I will be able to get your good luck and get 500/pp b/c even that is an arm/leg. 

     

    Out of curiousity, I know a week there, with 3 kids, in a room with a seperate kids room is going to run me about 6-7k without air fare. So when you add air fare..we're looking at 9-10k. How much does the wedding cost outside of that (typically)...I was hoping to stay under 10k total but I guess i'm looking at just under 15k now!

      Hi MellieG - If you go with the Beautiful Beginnings wedding, that is free.  Were you looking at doing one of the other Martha Stewart options?  Which village are you staying in, the Italian?  I am getting married April 14th.  I am going with the Beautiful Beginnings wedding and I am bringing my own real-touch flowers (just because I don't really care for the flowers that come with the BB package).  We are staying for a week, and my daughter is going to be there with us -  however, she will be staying in my parents room.

        Yes, the flights to Turks & Caicos are expensive!!!  I have been watching daily and waiting for the prices to come down a bit.  I can't get a direct flight from Raleigh, NC either.  I had heard that flights come down in price a bit around Sept/Oct.  Guess I check then.

            Yea, thats exactly what we got, Im flying US, and we have to connect in NC, then to TC.

If we fly US Airways, we'll have to connect in Charlotte, NC. It's actually okay though. I've gotten use to seeing the $696 flight on all of the airlines websites...

              Like Michelle said, it really depends what package you choose.  We chose the seaside serenade package which is $3400, rooms were about $3400 and thats not even for a week we are staying from Wed-Mon, and the airfair was about $500.00 a person, and we are flying out of Reagan.  And we are also doing the private reception which can range from $50-$75 a person depending on what you choose, or you can just do a cocktail hour, or you can do what most do and just have your reception at one of the resturaunts which is FREE!

                Hi Mellie!! Congrats and welcome!!

                 

                I'm in a very similar situation...we have been together for close to 10 years now, living together for close to 7, and have been engaged for over 3 I think? (I forget sometimes, lol) I already have a son from a previous relationship and our lives are just busy and actually making it legal just kep getting moved down on the list of priorities, lol.

                 

                We are booked for next May at Beaches as well and neither of us have been to T&C before so I'm def excited!!!

                    So tell me why I didn't get the notifications that people replied...Sorry for the delayed response. With school starting and my oldest ALREADY having homework, its been CRAZY!

                     

                     Brandy & Michelle: Yes, I'm not looking forward to the flight prices at all. Jennifer (The TA from here) just messaged me so i'm excited to start talking to her about flights. My guess is that I will just do the beautiful beginnings and a private cocktail hour. I'll then do like you said, try and have everyone go eat dinner together afterward. It feels soo OVERWHELMING! :P 

                     

                    HockeyMom: I definetly feel you about our situations. Since I have started Forking over money yet, I hope that I can stay commited to getting married. Since we want to do it on our same anniversary, i've at least got a date set. Congrats on pushing forward and taking the final step :) 

                     

                    Iv1044: Congrats on your marriage!! I can't wait till u do your review :)

                      Hey Mellie! Yeah it can all feel pretty overwhelming at first, but once you get all the big stuff knocked out of the way, it gets a lot better I promise!  I felt the exact same way, but after I booked everything and the flights then all the fun stuff came, like making our invites and stuff like that.
