    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?

    It looks like you provided a bit of your own stuff. Who did you get to do that for you?

    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! :thumbsup2

    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. :thumbsup2

    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. :thumbsup2

    Thank You all for posting - this is so helpful in terms of planning purposes!

    I'm wondering if anyone has had a reception at the Grand Floridian and done the drape lighting by the chandelier? I am wondering if anyone can tell me how much they paid for it? Also basic uplighting?

    Thanks!

    Hi everyone. Thank you to those that have posted your budgets. It was a great help during my planning process, and now I hope to return the favor. We will be making a few tweaks to floral, specialty drinks, and transportation, but overall it's pretty sound. I will try to post my floral budget later.

    Now that I've got this whole uploading photos thing down, here is my detailed floral budget. We are reducing the number of umbrellas to save some money. For some color analysis- DF and I told the florist that particular types of flowers weren't important to us. I gave her some examples of centerpieces I like for inspiration, but they weren't set in stone by any means. Hope this helps.

    I noticed you had no transportation for the dessert party. Are you having guests meet at uk on their own? Do they meet at a certain time at the front of the park? At international gateway?

    Does your audio for the ceremony include microphones?

    Thanks!

    We are not providing transportation to the DP. All of our guests are staying on property and we know quite a number of them will be in the park between the reception and DP (after changing clothes at their resort). It was also a cost saving measure.

    Our DP is from 8 - 9:30 PM. According to my full BEO, guests arriving by resort buses must meet at the front entrance at 7:30 to be escorted in, and guests walking from Beach Club have to be to International Gateway at 7:45. Those that are in the park can just stroll on up.

    Here is the detail from my BEO of the audio package:
