Cypress grove wedding ! Cost please!
 
Hi all you lucky brides to be! Hope you can help me, my son and future daughter in law would love to marry in Orlando! They can't afford a Disney wedding but really like the look of cypress grove, I've been reading this forum and have noticed that quite a lot of you also like it! Anyway do you think any of you would like to share how much you are paying for this? Firstly the basic package, who you have booked with and then the add ons! This would be ofGreat help in letting them decide what to do and how to go about it, you all seem to be a very helpful and supportive bunch, so looking forward to your answers,
Thank you
Pauline

Thanks Natalie , for your quick response! I see that it includes the use of one of the rooms incase of bad weather, that is something we were concerned about so that puts that worry to bed! Thank you! Now , would you mind me asking what you are paying for transport, photos and all the little extras at cypress grove?
Thanks Pauline

Hi,
I'm sure your son and daughter in law would not regret a weddign at Cypress Grove, I'm currently planning mine (well all planned waiting for the day) and I can honestly say they would probably be greatful they didn't go with Disney for allt he extra money it costs their service can be dreadful (I was originally having a Disney wedding)

We have booked with a company called Destination Occasion which is actully run by a Dibber (FLgirlUKnow I think is her username) her name is Carrie and she has been wonderful, I couldn't recommend her enough.

We went with her basic package which included Cypress Grove for 2 hours, Officiant, Bouquet and Boutonniere. This all cost little over $1000, on top of this we have added champagne and cake, Drapping and floral to the gazebo, Floral to the chairs, Sand ceremony, Bridesmaid bouquets and we are still only around $2000

I'm the same as Natalie and have booked with Carrie of Destination Occassion. I have also added on a mini reception with champagne, a sand ceremony, hair and make up for me, my sis, mum, MIL and young bridesmaid, button holes for groomsmen and corsages for mum and MIL and I think all in all this has come to around $2500 although dont quote me as i dont have the paper work to hard!

Would definitly recommend getting in touch with Carrie and she can tailor a package.

Ive also booked photography with Randy Chapman who comes highly recommend as well and i cat remember the exact price either but he is very reasonable, and $500 springs to mind but i would need to check.. it may be s! However my sister is paying 1200 for her UK wedding photographer so Randy is defintly a bargin!

I havent booked transport yet so cant comment on that but im sure a couple of the girls have so shoud be able to give you an idea x

Randy is amazing and a lovely man. You definately get your money's worth with him. When he did my wedding a couple of years ago for three hours it was less than $500 and he came early and left late meaning we got over 4 hours. We also booked him for another hour in the evening which was $250. He delivered all the photos to us about a week after the Wedding at our hotel, we got over 3000 photos on 7 CDs and you get all the rights to them.

Yes, $150 per hour seems to ring a bell for our booking with Randy, we have him booked for 5 hours for getting ready, the ceremony, and then photos at the Boardwalk
