Let me say that my wedding was amazing!! Everything went very well at least to my acknowledge. The day started out at 8:30 for makeup and hair. She was amazing !! My videographer showed at 11:30 (only had them 6hrs). HMU was done at 2:00, that's when all the nerves started kicking in right before I was getting dressed. My girls helped calm me down. My husband texted me at 2:25 to let me know my ride was waiting downstairs (it was a surprise limo) to get to our square. Ceremony was suppose to start at 3:00 but a few family members were a little late, in a town no one has been at before, I didn't know what time it was but husband said he started walking at 3:14. As soon as we got done exchanges vows/rings something fell out of the tree, we all jumped and tried to see but we couldn't see anything, we all laughed. Our officiant made it funny to say even nature agrees with this! Everyone busted out laughing even more. I can't wait to get my video back just to see that part lol. Enough with that, I'll try to remember what all we spent as we didn't really have a set budget for our destination wedding.

Officiant (package with unlimited emails/calls, concierge to help booked all things wanted and also the photographer for 2hrs.... $1395

Venue Whitefield Square (2pm-5pm) $600

DOC (ceremony only) $350

Chair rental (30) $142.50 drop-off and pickup

Pedicabs (2) $140

Security Officer for square (required) $104

Saxophonist $350

Videographer (6hrs) $900

Reception Venue Savannah Riverboat Cruise we had a private room/buffet $2500 for 26 adults 2 infants (free)

Flowers/Boutonnieres (Etsy) $134

Cake (GiGi's) $170+$35 delivery fee

Limo don't know as I didn't plan that

HMUA $230 for me $150 daughter

Dress $2300 + Alterations $450

Tux Rental $250ish

Roughly $7200 that the husband and I split.. I paid for my dress/alterations and he paid for tux.

    And that’s not all of them! So hard to choose!!
    The ones on the boat are from phones as we didn’t have the photographer or videographer with us then.

    Thank you!! It was amazing! The fireworks were a plus that night, just so happened to be Savannah’s kickoff to Christmas. So that was a nice ending to our blessed day!

    Thank you! I think a Riverboat is a way to go, at least this one. They had live entertainment so that meant no DJ for us to payout. Lol. We actually got engaged on a Riverboat in Louisville Ky. on a dinner cruise. So we thought why not celebrate our day with our loved ones on a Riverboat.
