Other than the package you choose, what other additional fees or charges did you come across? How much did this impact your budget? 

 

I'm asking because as I read various posts, it seems like many people are hit with alot of additional costs - extra guests, lighting, flowers, dance floor, etc. 

 

Did you find a resort that packaged most of these costs together? 

 

Thanks!

I think it really depends on the resort, the package that each bride is looking for, and the size of the wedding group. 

 

We decided to do the "free" package at our resort, and then do add-ons from there because the buy-up packages had stuff we didn't want or need, so it didn't make any sense to pay for them. I think the next package for us was $950, and when we compared the line items, the $950 just wasn't worth the additional stuff. We can use that $950 to set up the ceremony/reception the way we want it, vs. a set package that had no flexibility. 

 

It's really a matter of doing your research on the resorts and their packages, and figuring out the best fit from there. Good luck with your planning!

    Something that we thought we might have to pay extra for is bringing our own, off-site photographer. He is our friend and is coming with his wife, so we just have to pay the same per-head price for him and not the $300+ it would be for hiring an outside photographer.

     

    Something to think of in case you are planning on doing the same!
