I don't know if you meant for that to be sang, but I definitely sang it in my head.
Totally meant to be sung. :cool1:

I'm just on pins and needles. Parts of me want to be super optimistic that it's going to come in under what I expect, leaving me room to do everything else I want. The other part of me...the super pessimistic side...thinks that I'll be WAY over budget and need to take out stuff that I don't want. :(

Thank you for posting this! It's similar to what I'm planning, so it gives me a great base to work from, budget-wise!!

Does anyone know of anyone who posted their BEO who is under the new pricing model? I can't seem to find any. Any help would be beneficial. Thank you.

    You're welcome. Let me know if I can help you with any questions, though I realize we were under the old pricing structure. Good luck and happy planning.

    We are looking at having a vow renewal at the wedding pavilion. I love the tale as old as time aisle runner with the candelabras and floral decor on them I've seen on Pinterest and the Disney weddings site. We would be doing an escape package. I am wondering what the runner and decor costs?

    How funny! Love the DisBoards.. I was just dutifully reviewing my Passporters book today to see if I could get a feel for how much an aisle runner costs for the wedding pavilion. I believe that scattering petals on the sides can get really pricey, though. Interested to see whether someone has a recent estimate :)

    Whatever you do for meals. We went just the two of us to Victoria and Alberts and then as a group to California Grill the next night but that is truly up to you.

    Compared to prices at home I found this quite affordable given the actual experience was far superior to what I could get for that price at home...

    For those wondering about a custom runner at the wedding pavilion. I was quoted this -
    You have the option to purchase a plain white aisle runner for $295+, or a runner with the text “And they lived happily ever after” in silver or gold text for $745+.

    0-4 guests
    Conch Key marina Grand Floridian
    Violinist
    Limousine 3 hr
    Flowers and lilies bouquet

    Hello
    Does anyone have a BEO thats kinda recent with the wishes for around 80-100 people?
    Hello! We are having around 90 or 95 guests at our 7/3/16 wedding. We are using the wedding pavilion for the ceremony, the GF marina and sago cay for the cocktail hour, and St Augustine for the reception. Not including outside up lighting, chiavari chairs, photo, video and a photo booth, our total is $39,000 through DFTW. I am having a very large cocktail hour since our reception starts pretty late, and I also didn't cut any floral or decor from what we picked at the planning session, and I even added a few things that I felt were must haves later like glow ice cubes to our signature drink ($3 each lol). Oh and we are offering steak and lobster duet plates for dinner and Mickey ice cream bars alongside the cake for dessert. So what I'm trying to say, not very eloquently, is that I think it can be much less than the number that I just gave :) Feel free to send me an email at tarynashley89 at gmail if you'd like the detailed BEO. Hope this helps!
