Getting married at St. George Island, FL.
Total invited guests 80, total rsvp 55-60
Doing Wed-Saturday. Wedding on Friday so will have food at our beach house (Hub) for all meals each day if people choose to come over to eat. Food and alcohol budget including reception is $3000.
Doing flowers myself, budget $250, only having 3 in wedding party plus dads and officiant and moms.
Rentals $600 tables, chairs, benches for beach, table linen
Music (steel drums and DJ) $750
Bartender $300 plus tip
Dress, hair, nails, veil, shoes, etc for me $1000
Welcome baskets, decorations, gifts, miscellaneous $1000-1500
House rental (hub of all activities for the whole week) $4500
So all in all we will spend around $12,000. Would have spent double that at least having the traditional in town wedding and inviting everyone we knew!
This doesn’t include us buying some new outfits to wear for the week of vacation.
I am so excited about our destination wedding and so is all of our friends and family now that it is getting closer and closer to time when they can see the ocean and put their toes in the sand.
