After that mini hiccup I decided the max I wanted my guests to spend per person then went from there. I did a lot of research to find a beautiful place that would still be affordable for our guests. I also researched airfare which is why I'm getting married 2/7 and not later in Feb like I originally wanted, when the airfare was much higher. My resort has great reviews and the pictures are gorgeous, it also accepts kids and for those with real little ones it didn't impact the room rate (all things I researched and had quoted out too). My wedding planner has been so hopeful and responsive but my resort is definitely not boutique style so it probably wouldn't be of interest to you, but someone on here may have some really good suggestions for you.
Thank you very much I figured out I dont want our guests to spend anymore than 1k, and that is like the ultimate max. I have found a few that fit in the budget for our guests, but I think I will have to host the wedding else where.
