Thank you for sharing your site fee! I actually saw your wedding on the disney blog and was so in love with it. I always wanted to do a wedding on shipwrecked bay but had never seen one and it was never listed as an option!! Thank you for sharing!

Swan and Dolphin Wedding Budget *7/1/12*

Ok ladies so I wanted to give you our budget breakdown on what it was like to have a swan and dolphin wedding.

If there is something you want to know as far as a breakdown of the costs just send me a message or leave a comment.

Swan & Dolphin Site Fee:$1595.00
Wedding Consultant Fee:$1,095.00, we used our planner for the reception as well so this was the fee broken down away from the fee for the ceremony site itself it included all services for the ceremony and the reception.
Officiant:$200.00
Fulton's Crab House (Reception):$2,064.14, we had 22 adults with meals that were $72 each
DJ:$700.00 we used her for 3.5 hours
Floral:$1504.53 this was for all floral and decor for the ceremony and reception
Photography:$1757.25 this included our wedding day all day coverage and the dessert party coverage that night
Videography:$2081.15 this included all day wedding day coverage plus dessert party coverage and the blu ray upgrade package
Dessert Party:$1938.20 this was for the wishes music that was piped in plus a menu including taxes that was $45.10 per person and we paid for 32 people to meet our minimum even though we did not have 32 people. This ended up being ok and was a good amount of food for everyone.
Linens:$777.30

Total Wedding Budget:$13,712.57

I hope this helps everyone that is trying to price out a wedding at the swan and dolphin. If you would like a breakdown of costs, taxes and gratuity charges I will be more than willing to give it to you just message me.

With this part this ends the wedding day! Now it is time to move on to our honeymoon trip report!

I hope you enjoy it

Teresa

Does anyone know of any BEO's that are for 100 people or really close to it?

Just wanted to see how bad I will be breaking the bank. Thanks!

I just realized that I never posted our BEO. I always found these postings so helpful when planning our wedding.

Hi! I'm new to the forums and this thread so far has been so super helpful in planning my hopefully Disney Wedding. Of course, as per usual with most here, money and budget is a big deal.

My fiance and I are currently looking at having our ceremony at the Wedding Pavilion and our reception at The Living Seas Salon. We are trying to stay around $15,000. We are still unsure of how many people will come, but we are thinking around 75-100 people. Can I just get some input on if people think this is plausible?

I would cut floral and decor out and I will be doing that on my own. My dress and all the bridal party dresses/tuxes are not included in that budget since that is separate.

Also, I've noticed in the thread many people had a "dessert party" several hours after their reception. Is this common? I have never heard of it before.

My fiance and I are looking at having a morning wedding and a brunch/lunch reception and then spending the rest of the day in the parks with those who decide to join us. Is this a good idea? What about the guests that don't buy passes? They will have to leave?

I'm just looking for some feedback with another person who has had experience or is currently going through the process on this. I am planning on calling down there soon to talk to somebody, but would rather have some personal experience beforehand. Any help is appreciated :D -Caitlyn

With brunch, no bar, minimal decor, no extras, and 75 people this might be doable (but don't forget tax and service charge). Are you planning to send out 75-100 invites, or is that the number of yeses you expect? Because your actual attendance may be 30%–50% lower (or more) which would help cut costs.

Unfortunately you will not be allowed to provide your own floral and decor at your locations, except for personal floral like bouquets and boutonnieres.

It's one of the unique aspects of a Disney World wedding that you have access to multiple world-class fireworks shows. Some of us have held additional private parties during these shows, either as a capper to the wedding or a welcome/farewell event. You can read about mine HERE to get an idea what it's like...

Because your guests will not have park admission, they will be escorted out of the park after your reception via the charter transportation Disney requires for in-park events. Officially... I'm sure somebody has a story of their guests wandering out into the park after a Living Seas reception, but they're not supposed to be allowed to...

Hope this helps!

You might find it helpful to post any further questions out in the main Weddings & Honeymoons forum so more people will see them.

Questions - when you purchase a bar package, either beer/wine or beer/wine/liquor, is soda and water included, or do you need to purchase packages with both?

I have more people that drink than don't, but I don't want to leave the people who don't drink with nothing.

thanks!
