This thread is a big help in planning!

Does anyone have an Escape Budget for 2010? I am trying to put together a budget to see if we can make this happen! I think I want Misty & StVS for live webcasting

I knew it was too good to be true. For a second I thought the charge was $12.50 for the viewing party. Then I figured that could not be, as this is Disney, so before I made changes to my budget, I figured I would ask you. We're planning an Escape wedding at the wedding pavilion and I gave us a budget of $10k for one day. We are not even having a formal reception, just taking family out to a buffet and we're already so close to the limit.

Disney will make whatever is in your budget work. They will work with you to guarantee that your wedding is everything that you want it to be. My daughter had her wedding at WDW last year (wow a year already) and fortunately for us we are locals and around 150 people showed up. I can say with everything--I am including the Pavillion, Cinderella's coach, all the floral and table settings, reception at the Yacht/Beach Club, pre-reception and open bar, the food, cake, decorations, chocolate fountain, transportation (limos and bus service), DJ, photographers and videographers--it was just a little over $64,000.00. We had a budget of $60,000.00 but had to throw in some little items.

Wow - that's twice as much as the deposit I put down on my property...

Pin-spotting is where they place a small spotlight above selected areas - the cake table, each dinner table, the sweetheart table - for dramatic effect.

I'd love to see a BEO from any recent or future Wishes wedding. This is what I want to have, and I need some good figures to give the Dbf. He's on the fence right now.
