I know! I don't mean to get off topic but I am sure  Calgarybride 2015 you are tearing up, what a once in a lifetime memory.

My 71 year old dad who hasn't left the USA since he arrived at Ellis Island on a ship from Greece is coming! Didn't think he could, but he is!  I can not wait to be witness to him throwing a pole in the water and fishing and relaxing with us on a vacation together with us. Its going to be a great time and I know it will enjoy just as I am sure all of you will.

Congrats everyone..

And just traveling with friends and family rocks. People can't stop talking about it on FB. People made new friends for life. It's almost like a once in a lifetime to be able to do that - wedding is the excuse - and I am sooooooo glad we did it!!!! Tearing up lol

That will be so nice for him! I'm waiting for the same with my future father in law, he hasn't taken time off in years, since my fiance and his sisters were kids. I'm really excited to see him relax for a while :D

 

PS: @calgarybride2015 it seems that we always get off topic on formus hahah. No wonder my brain is a mess of ideas :P

 

Cheers to all of us!!

I posted this on a similar thread but here is our rough estimate...

 

We are at about $8500 right now, not including our ten day trip. We have 27 guests as of right now (including bride and groom). Here's a summary of some of the bigger things our price includes, whether we added them or they were included in our package:

 

- Private welcome dinner (four courses and open bar for two hours)

- Ceremony (including officiant, flowers, sound system...)

- Cocktail hour with 8 different types of passed hors d'oeuvres and a caribbean trio/band

- 4 hour reception with five course meal (steak and lobster) and open bar

- DJ during reception (4 hours)

- Private fire and percussion show on the beach (before reception - 45 mins)

- Outside photog for six hours & outside vendor fee for photog

- Purchase of custom maracas, paper fans and papel picado from a company in Mexico

 

We did get $850 off of our wedding package because of the room category we booked. Realistically, we are probably closer to $10k because we didn't really keep track of a budget on OOT bags, various other decoration items we bought and are bringing, paper goods (e.g. menus, invites), etc. Also, this doesn't include my dresses, rings, jewelry, etc.. This is really just "day of"/resort stuff, if that makes sense.

 

If I had to estimate/guess how much everything is costing, including our trip/honeymoon, rings (wedding bands), dresses, gifts, other accessories, it's probably somewhere between $22k - $25k.

I think we're at around $9000-10,000 for the wedding and receptoin at the Riu in Cancun.  The package (for 40 guests) is $3000, the DJ is $2000 and a private reception including dinner and open bar is $50 per person.

Then just have to factor in the photographer and hair/makeup.  I'm hoping we won't go over $10,000, although I am very grateful my parents are helping us!
