I dont have many people and its probably going to be more like 25 then the 30-40 but just to prepare.

Any help ladies would be great. I am thinking of the Croquet gardens, not sure of venue for brunch at all, not to big on flowers,... I think Im driving myself crazy with all of this.
I had 18 people (but paid for 20... don't ask), brunch reception, and I went $200 over the minimum. I also had a LOT of extras though: a Model A Ford, Major Domo, and Mickey and Pluto. My brunch buffet was also pretty pricy: about $75/pp. We had ENTIRELY too much food!

In other words, you can totally do it.

Wow your budget is so incredibly helpful to me especially as I am looking at similar things.

The photos are a brilliant idea to show what you got for the money and your pics are beautiful

Thank you for sharing this x

Thank you for posting, Bec! Your numbers helped me tweak my budget a bit for prices I wasn't sure of.

Our event was in June of 2010 at the WP so we are a bit over the $12k minimum ($14k) but since you don't want the WP that would bring your cost down by over $3000 so you make it up right there.

We had 35 guests total and a DP the night before at Sago Cay Pointe

Estimated Budget:





Here's the break down of the Floral package mentioned above:



I hope this helps!

Bec,
did you have your ipod package inside or at SCP? I am just trying to figure out if it's an option outside. Your pictures are amazing and the way you did your budget is really helpful! Thanks

Shades of Green IS in Disney. They are right across the street from the Poly and on Disney property (which they have leased from WDW for X amount of years). I really don't understand the mentality that to get married at SoG, you aren't a "Disney Bride"

The Ipod package was just for WHR, but because we had the wishes music at SCP after the fireworks we were able to plug the ipod in and play some more music. It wasn't discussed beforehand, DH just asked the bloke with the equipment whether he'd mind if we did it, so we did!

Thanks! I love my flowers, they're still sitting in a vase, and that's one of the things I love about silk!

I was really happy with how the tables turned out!
