Which is more cost efficient? Going with an unaffiliated wedding planner to plan your ceremony and reception or going with a hotel wedding package? What did you choose? Were you happy? What was the end cost?
Thanks for your advice!

I am using a wedding planner, but my wedding is also not at a hotel. Although when I was doing my research most hotel packages seemed to be more expensive than an unaffiliated wedding planner package. It really depends on what your looking for though. My wedding is a small intimate affair, so going through a hotel would not be worth it because their packages are usually based on a larger wedding.
There are many unaffiliated planners who have nice packages and you can rent a private venue, for cheaper than some hotels. Its really just about researching based on your needs I guess.

@beachcandy: Do you think a party of 40-50 would be more cost efficient via hotel for ceremony and reception?
I would like an outdoor wedding on the lawn right next to the waters. Definitely would be nice to see it very close to the alter. Well, Id consider doing it on a plantation too but I think that would be more expen
Where are you having your venue and # of guests? Also which company for your wedding planning are you going with?
