I am planning a wedding for July 2013 (starting the planning early to allow friends enough time to save up money to ensure everyone can come!). We live in Cincinnati, OH but are wanting a destination wedding in the Seaside, FL area.
We do not have a budget set yet, but what can we expect to pay for a wedding in that area? I'd like to have a ballpark idea in mind for when I talk to my dad about the finances. We want a wedding on the beach and great reception site with at least open beer/wine, outdoors if possible. Photographer is already picked, cost: $5000.Estimating 75-100 guests. Also, what is the average fee for wedding planners? This may be a great option for us since we live so far away.
