    My goal is to try to keep it as inexpensive as possible. If you need to arrive the day before and leave the day after that is fine also. How many invitaitons did you send out. I am at the beginning stage and wont lock my date in until Early November.

            Not necessarily, if you are staying 7 nights it would be 3-3500, but guest can stay only 4 nights or 3. Because of personal reasons my room came up a lot more expensive that I would have like it but I am thinking my guests would be around $2500 or less for 4 nights.

              The cost depends on your destination in relation where you're from. We decided on Mexico because flights are about $350 roundtrip. (Our actual dates aren't available yet.) Our guest will be paying about $800 each for lodging and airfare for our wedding.

                [quote name="TiarraBeautyJ" url="/t/85914/bride-on-a-budget-7-000-00-wedding-challenge/30#post_1931457"]Very nice Breakdown!!!  I love your disposable camera option that will save you tons of money. I chose custom invites in which I created them all by myself I ended up spending 32.00 printing them at office max and 8.50 shipping them off. I am having a very small wedding with under 30 people. [/quote Thanks so nuch for the encouragement. Those disposable cameras really worked out best for us.professional pictures always look great but we figured iur friends and family taking picture of us as they see us is soo much more meaningful. And yes saves thousands if dollars.

                  $800 each for lodging and airfare? That sounds like a great deal!!!
