Thank you!!! $800 is RIDICULOUS for $12 lights!!! haha oyyyyy
Any recommendation on where to buy chair sashes and napkins??
So you can bring your own decorations?? Is that cheaper?? Do you have to buy the decorations? Nothing is included?? Getting married here aug 15. Very nervous I'm going to have to pay so many extra costs. I wanna keep things very simple. I would like a mariachi band at cocktail hour.. Is this extra??
Also, was Juan Carlos everyone's wedding coordinator.. Do they all work together.. I have not emailed with Ramon and Anel. Does it matter? I hope they are all equally good!
We budgeted $10,000 for our wedding. That included everything from invitations to the cost of the wedding package and everything in-between (rings, attire, wedding party gifts, extra flowers, decor). I am happy to say that we were under budget! Though we were able to cut costs on things like decor and photography (my sister did photos outside of the ceremony). We had 19 people including ourselves but the cost would have been the same for 25 with the Divine package we had selected. Add approximately $100 per person to your budget for every person over 25. There has been a lot of talk on this thread from brides with 50+ people and how they were able to keep their costs lower. With your vision of a simple wedding you can definitely stay on budget!
We then had additional money budgeted for the cost of our trip and a second week at a different resort. Flying from Canada our guests paid anywhere from $1,500 to 1,700 per person for one week. That included flights, transfers, and the stay at the resort. Guests booked about 5-6 months prior to our November wedding.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me.
Hello. I am going to have 50 plus guests what is the thread that tells how to cut costs. I know it's about 100 more per person.. Thanks!
I bought the harmon/kardon bluetooth sound system to take! It was expensive, but I'll get to keep it after and it sounds amazing! We are 20 days from leaving! We just heard back that we were comped 1730.00 toward rooms! More than expected because his family was giving the TA grief and I told them to book with whoever they wanted!
So the guitarist can play at the cocktail hour? I thought that was for the ceremony . Can you choose?
This thread is great but it's making think of so many things all at once!! So overall, is it better to go with outside vendors for DJ and/or photography? How about for decorations? Any reccomendations?
