teamboyd2012 - I've been considering customizing my package too as we had originally chose the ultimate package and it was coming out to be a bit pricey and I didnt need all the spa stuff nor the photography stuff. After I saw your post, I emailed my WC asap! lol Being that we both went the same route regarding vendors, I figured what the heck, it doesnt hurt to ask. I sent her a list of exactly all the things I want for the wedding. Lets see what happens! Thanks for the tip!

The determining factor for us was hearing what other brides were saying on this site. We put the numbers on paper and saw that if we took the free package and did the add-ons ourselves we came out better that our original package (Dreams of Love). And since we are bringing A LOT of our own stuff from home (and booking outside vendors - HDC, Mannia and Floral), it just made more sense.
