I think things will work out - they are saving money and it is smaller and the staff will be much more personable at SB due to the decreased number in occupants.
Sllefebvr - Holy Moly $40k! Yowza - are you paying for everyone's rooms? What wedding package did you go with? I am doing the Beautiful Begginings my additions are as follows:
Room $800-900 per person (I am only paying for myself, groom and my daughter)
Flights $600 per person (again only buying 3)
One man steel drummer - $250 1hr
DJ - $600
2hr reception dinner for 50 - $2500
4 extra tables for reception - $400
2 dozen cupcakes - like $75
Of course I have to pay for photos which is apparenlty going to cost me my right leg - lol - $1500. But I have seen the digital photo book you get and it was amazing!!! Did you ladies know that the photog's go around resort the whole stay and take your photos during your stay too so you and your friends can buy them before leaving the resort - kinda cool.
I am bringing my own bouquet and some corsages since they are so stinking expensive at the resort. My friend is going to do my hair as they typically charge $250 to do this. Of course my dress and groom attire along with my daughters bridesmaid dress.
Unless you are getting a suite and one of the wedding packages I have no idea why you are getting to this expense. I am curious though
If you have a travel agent you need to look into their honeymoon registry! You set it up and people buy "things" like spa services, excursions, etc and what you actually get is a check before you leave for your weddingmoon so you can apply that money to whateever you like!!
Also my TA got me the coins when she went to Jamaica recently.
FutureMRzMalone - yikes on Chloe...where has she gone??? I too am so thankful for all the ladies and support of this website....this would be impossible without them!!
