HELP: ORLANDO WEDDING ON A $6000. BUDGET Messages in this topic - RSS

Guest Orlando, FL January 7, 2013
HELP,

I AM TRYING TO PLAN A NOVEMBER 2013 WEDDING FOR APPROXIMATELY 35-50 PEOPLE. MY BUDGET IS $6000. GIVE OR TAKE A LITTLE.

SOME WEDDING PLANNERS JUST BRUSH ME OFF. SOME DON'T EVEN ANSWER MY REQUEST FOR A QUOTE. AND SOME ANSWER WITH A RIDICULOUS QUOTE INCLUDING THEIR FEE WHICH ADDS UP TO ABOUT $10K-$11 THOUSAND. SOME WANT A RIDICULOUS FEE JUST TO GIVE YOU A QUOTE. I FEEL LIKE IF IT'S NOT $10K AND UP THEY FEEL IT'S NOT WORTH THEIR TIME.

I'M LOOKING FOR AN ALL INCLUSIVE PRICE. I HATE NEGOTIATING WITH VENDORS BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE I MIGHT BE GETTING RIPPED OFF. THIS IS VERY STRESSFULL AND I DON'T WANT TO DEAL WITH MULTIPLE VENDORS. I'M STARTING TO THINK ABOUT JUST ME AND MY FIANCEE HAVING A 2 PERSON WEDDING WITH AN OFFICIANT AND SPENDING THE REST ON A VACATION HOWEVER HE WANTS HIS FAMILY THERE AND YES, ALTHOUGH THEY GET ON MY NERVES I WOULD LIKE MY FAMILY SEE ME GET MARRIED. ACTUALLY I'M AT THE POINT OF CONSIDERING POSTPONING IT UNTIL WE HAVE MORE MONEY. WE ALREADY POSTPONED OUR NOVEMBER 2012 WEDDING DUE TO UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES.

ANYONE HAS ANY SUGGESTIONS? (I DO NOT WANT A BEACH WEDDING!) AND I WOULD LIKE AN INDOOR RECEPTION. CEREMONY AND RECEPTION CAN BE THE SAME PLACE.

I DON'T THINK DYI IS FOR ME. I WOULDN'T KNOW WHERE TO START. I JUST WANT A NICE WEDDING THAT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE A CHEAP QUINCENERA. upset

I HAVE READ SOME HORROR STORIES ON VENDORS AND THAT SCARES ME. VENDORS SHOWING UP 2 HOURS LATE WITH LITTLE DEBBIE CAKES STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX AND CALLING IT APPETIZERS WHILE GUESTS WAIT IN THE HOT SUN SO THE VENUE CAN BE PREPARED. NO PLATES, THE SERVERS NOT DOING THEIR JOB AND THE BRIDE AND GROOM SERVING THE GUESTS.

VERY DISSAPOINTED SO FAR!

Congratulations on your engagement! November is an amazing wedding month (I myself have a November anniversary). Your budget is actually great for a 35-50 person modest wedding, and I would love to discuss some ideas with you. I am a certified wedding and event planner recently based in Montgomery, AL, but most of my professional experience is from San Diego's booming wedding and special events industry. Feel free to email me or call me at your convenience, and I would be happy to speak with you!

You're on the track....as the second week of Nov is the end of the wedding season really........before the holidays kick in you should be able to negotiate better rates with all your vendors on anything you need..........so if if need a DJ, band or musician let me know I will cut you a deal........Thanks!

Hello!
Congrats on your wedding! I just did a wedding here in Ohio with a budget that was right around there. I know its long distance here to there but I would be happy to help out and see what I can do to help. I have people I work with in the Central Florida area. Shoot me an email if you want to bounce some ideas off and I actually have a worksheet I can send you that you can use to see what you need and for the wedding as far as helping stay in budget. Congrats again!
