That's soo funny that they don't celebrate it, but at least you and your guests can. Although, I did see it marked on the resort activities calendar so maybe the resort does do something??
Yeah, my estimated list right now is at 57 including me and my FI. I'm hoping it doesn't get any bigger and really wouldn't mind all that much if some ppl couldn't make it, as horrible as that sounds. lol
I've been stressing about the price and my budget a lot lately, but my mind was put at ease by a lot of really helpful brides on some FB groups I am apart of. They had their weddings there and have shared pictures and information which has made me feel a little better. Not to mention, my FI sat me down yesterday and said to just have the wedding I want (don't go too crazy), but don't sacrifice things you truly want since we'll only be doing this once.
With that said, I will more than likely stick with DRC. I'll just play with the budget planner a little until I'm a bit more satisfied. We aren't getting married until June 17th 2016 so I have lots of time to play around with it. I am booked with DRC already and received my confirmation letter so now it's just figuring out what exactly I want.
I need to play with numbers regarding using their vendors (like their photo\video, DJ) and compare it to outside vendors and see if it's cost effective as well as quality/quantity. Some brides have recommended going with a company that does photo and video to cut down on the outside vendor fee that is imposed. I also like the idea that the outside DJ packages come with so much stuff and for cheaper than what the resort offers. I saw one that had DJ for 4 hrs and included; light up dance floor, DJ booth/equipment, lighting, and rolling shot cart I think all for under $2000. Now I just have to remember where I saw it at.
Can't wait to keep following you through your journey. I'm so excited for you. It's going to me A-mazing!!
