      Hi ladies,

      I'm from Chicago as well, it really is a small world! But to answer your original budget question...my budget was for $11,000, but it looks like that won't be enough. I find it so interesting, I thought just my closest friends and family would be able to come, but I'm finding that more and more people are planning to make it a weekend getaway. We sent invitations out and in the first week we had about 10 people RSVP. In fact, we haven't received any regrets yet. So, I believe after all is said is done it will be between 15 - 20K.

          Have I ever been to J. Patricks? Ummm yes, quite a few times, actually! Often enough that one of the bartenders saw Paul and I moving a couch into his place, saw that I was struggling a little, and came out to help! It's a favorite place of ours ...

          Sorry ... I know!

              Ha ha...I am so jealous of your closeness I am tempted to drive down from Milwaukee and meet you for that drink! J/K but what a small world.

              Anyway, we started with a budget of $20,000 split between our parents and that includes our wedding trip to mexico with 70 people and a low-key AHR for 150. Needless to say we are now up closer to $30K when you factor in helping our bridal party, paying for the honeymoon, my dress, wedding bands etc...

              My feeling is that there is a trade-off between paying more yourselves and having your guests pay more with the higher room rates at an AI. We decided to pay more ourselves and save them some money. But this is still less expensive than doing a full blown wedding at home in Milwaukee where we figured we would have invited 400+ people!

                Well, Paul and I are in the process of moving back to MN (where I was born and raised, I've lived in Chicago only a year or so). I think Milwaukee is on the way! lol

                  I'm hoping to stay under 15k including flight & hotel stay. We will only be having around 30 guests so hopefully we stay within budget.

                    I'm hoping that my wedding will be less then 20K but i think with travel expenses, OOT bags etc, I'm now hoping it does stay under 25k

                      Hi all, Was wondering which if you ladies may have a guest budget of around 1500-1700. To those of you who do, which resort have u found to be most fitting? We are finding that even though a resort may fit with our wedding budget ($15 000), we then see that guest costs aren't within our ideal lines. We do NOT want to ask people to put up more than 1700. But then I also find that with resorts and having 50 people, the wedding budget gets out of control with the supper and alcohol costs per person over X number in the package. Appreciate any and all feedback from u lovely ladies :)
