Have you looked into the Swan/Dolphin? Not a Disney wedding but right there

Does anyone have a budget sheet for a wedding with 80 to 100 people or more? I would love to see that. Thank you.

We started out thinking we would spend approx €7,000...now we're over €20,000
Of course that includes our flights from Ireland, 3 weeks in Pop Century, my dress, bridesmaid dresses, flower girls dress, DHs suit, the reception at The Grand Floridian Cafe, Bridal Portraits at MK and Epcot, a disney videographer package, gifts for all our guests, wedding rings, shoes for me my two bridesmaids and my flowergirl, spending money for the 3 weeks, a VIP cruise on Grand 1 Yacht the evening of the wedding for us and all our guests to watch the fireworks, invitations, officiant, hair and makeup, flowers etc on the day...
Its actually quite scary how fast it all adds up! But it will be worth it!

My wedding is going to have 40-50 people, so I will share my budget with you... as soon as I get it! I was told that I would have it by last Friday, and I still don't have it any day now...

I am thinking about surprising my wife (maybe shocking her would be better! ) and setting up a time to renew our wedding vows on our trip later this year. Nothing fancy... just her and I and then follow it up with dinner at the Chef's Table at Queen Victoria and Albert's. Is this doable? Any guesstimates on the cost? TIA

So I got an 'unofficial' BEO for everything but my floral, based on 40 guests. My plans are all changing so this BEO is not even going to stay like this, but I thought I would post it for those who were interested.

Ceremony - Wedding Pavilion - 3195.00
Cinderella's Coach - 2700.00
Charter Limo - 282.48

32 Package Bar @ 30.00 per guest - 1237.10
8 Soft Drinks & Water Package @ 16.50 per guest - 170.10
Fresh Fruit & Berries with Dip for pre-reception @ 8.75 per guest - 451.03
Av - iPod hookup for reception - 316.25
6 bottles of fairy tale cuvee @ 62.00 each - 479.38
2 bottles sparkling cider @ 23.00 each - 59.28
Cake - 547.68
Chocolate castle cake topper - 128.87
6 kids meals (Gus & Jaq) @ 27.50 each - 212.63
17 a la carte Beef @85.00 per guest - 1862.10
5 a la carte Tilapia @ 73.50 per guest - 473.58
12 a la carte vegetarian @ 71.50 per guest - 1105.66
Bartender fee - 106.50
1 Pianist - 820.00
MK and resort photo session - 1400.00

Estimated event total - 15547.64

This obviously does not include any floral - they are still working on it. And like I said, a bunch of my stuff is changing, but this should give you some idea for a lunch reception for 40 people. HTH

Just thought I would bump this one back up.

It's been really helpful to see all the BEO's, and I'd like to see if we have any more out there to share.

Question...Is the Limo for your guests, your bridal Party and for you? or is just for the bridal party and you? if it is how are your guests arriving at the venue's? on their own, disney bus?

Our ceremony and reception are both at the Grand Floridian, so there isn't much travel. But the limo will make unlimited trips between the 2 locations for our allotted time and will get the guests and bridal party to the reception location.

I want to do the same thing and save money on a bus but I"m afraid that the guests will not know where the wedding pavilion is, they might get lost, might not make it to the ceremony on time, etc. i know there are signs everywhere but aren't you afraid some of the guests might now make it?
