Wow, so the Knot informed me that our 'wedding date' is 9 months away. This may change, but it kinda kicked me back into wedding planning mode again (we had a rough year and it got put on the back burner). My dream wedding (hah) would be at a really luxurious place, but to keep it small. They offer elopement packages to include up to 12 guests (not sure we could keep it down to 12, but this is just speculation at this point), and the high-end cost estimate (as per their website) would be around $6,000 for a dinner reception, including one night stay for us (it's only an hour from where we live so no need for more than one night). I'm wondering, though, since that doesn't include anything else like music, or accessories (dress, suit, deco, etc.), or a rehearsal dinner... would $10,000 be a reasonable price range for a grand total on the whole event? I'm just trying to gauge how much more I'd need to add to the cost list..
