Holy moly I'm vibrating with anticipation of what venue we choose for a 2014 wedding lo!
I was wondering if any of you could offer your thoughts on what
- resort wedding package
was the best bang for your buck with a guest list of 40-50 people.
In looking at all of the packages, trying to decipher what surcharges would add up to depending on how many guests, etc....i thought I would see if anyone has planned and executed their wedding plans at a resort that had what they deemed to be a great deal (for this large of a party).
Our priorities are:
- keeping guest budget 1500-1700 (this has become harder from my travel agent's standpoint)
- having a dinner for guests
- having a semi-private area for reception (I absolutely love the pics I see when people have their own area set up) - I know this is extra but I would love to know what kinds of "deals" you have found on this
- keeping budget to 15,000
I honestly have come to care less about having a lot of decor set up for wedding/reception, but we really want to just ensure we are going to have a nice area to do speeches, dance, and enjoy the evening.
Several packages include service for 2-3 hrs, and I was wondering if any of you know whether this means that people need to LEAVE the private area after this point? or can you hang out and do your own thing for the evening if you want?
Of course this will differ from resort to resort - AGAIN WHY I AM ASKING IF ANYONE HAS GONE THROUGH THIS WHOLE PROCESS!
I hope this all makes sense, can't thank you all enough for the info you've already helped me out with!!
