Honestly, I would still check with your planner & floral about the aisle runner. I know of a few girls who had their planning sessions in February & March (myself being one of them) and were explicitly told by floral that they will NOT set up outside aisle runners now, and they are no longer allowed at the Wedding Pavilion. They are citing safety hazards. This went into effect about a month or so ago.

Hi everyone! I haven't posted much on here, but reading everyone's budgets really helped me with my wedding. I hope that my BEO helps future brides! We came in $2 over the $10,000 minimum My wedding includes extras like a violinist, Major Domo, bar, dessert party and photography.

I am on a very very tight budget, my other half and myself both only work part time, plus we are travelling from the UK, so I am making my own invites, the card and envelopes including sparkly mickey mouse resins all totalled £15 (no more than $25).

We are having the memories collection approx $2500+
I have bought silk roses for the men - 6 for under $10 Ebay
I will buy a cheap pair of flip flops and customise them (being married on Luau Beach)

I got my Daughters Dress in the sale for $15
I am going to try and get a cheap-ish dress for myself too.
There's a wedding outlet shop near my work with dresses from $120!

And when we go home we are having a huge party and cooking all our own buffet food. His cousin is also making our cake for us, so thats not costing us anything.

My hubby to be is a whiz with the computer, and we designed our own invites, save the dates, thank you cards, table numbers etc.

For bargains I would scan local buy and sell pages, freebie pages on facebook, Ebay, Etsy, DHGate (Chinese wholesale). Its crazy the amount of bargains out there!

Talking Decor for reception

Disney doesn't seem to list or tell you options to decorate your reception. Do you have to ask for any options or packages? Or would you basically tell them what you are thinking of and they price it?

If you bring your own decor for wedding or reception who helps set that up for you? Guests, the Wedding Planner?

Current

Does anyone have a current pricing/their budget breakdown for a wedding around 75 people? (Looking at the wedding pavilion and the LSS- not looking at using Disney decor or floral). Any more current pricing would be a HUGE help!

Unfortunately, both of your locations require you to use Disney for floral and decor—personal floral is the only exception.

Most of the individual prices in this thread are still current or only off by a few dollars, so you can use anything you find here to make a rough budget. The only individual prices in this thread that have changed substantially are the fees for ceremony locations, which go up to $3,300 for the Wedding Pavilion and $2,300 for pretty much everyplace else in 2014. Living Seas has all the same fees and venue-specific food and beverage minimums.

Hi lurkyloo.....just want to say I am learning so much from you. Thanks.

Can you clarify, because I thought I read in the Passporter Wedding book that you can use outside floral/decor vendors for the WP ? Maybe I am not understanding it correctly ?

I got married at the WP and had our reception at LSS in October 2012. I saved my beo on this thread of you wanted to take a look. I believe there were 62 people.

You used to be able to, but that has changed. It's mentioned in the two most recent versions of the PassPorter e-book, which you can re-download for free whenever it is updated.
