The Real Cost of a Wedding in Miami

Ever wonder how much one of those weddings in the magazines cost? Ok, not one by Preston Bailey with a rustic chapel built in the middle of a sunflower field, but one of the charming ones filled with custom details, gourmet food, entertainers, a lounge area, and/or a firework finale.

One of the first questions we receive from our clients is, what will my wedding cost me? Our answer is always, it will cost you whatever you are willing to spend, but as a reference, to have the type of wedding we produce in Miami, you are looking at a minimum spend of $1,000 per guest. This includes specialty designed stationary sets, intricate lighting design, a suite of personalized details, custom lounges, specialty linens, gourmet caterer, mixology bar, etc... Now this is just a guideline. Of course, if your budget doesn’t allow for all these extras, there are plenty of ways to have a wonderful wedding at any budget. You just have to be realistic and put your priorities in order. Now if you must “have it all!” and you have a budget of say $50,000, then just reduce your guest count to fifty and your dream wedding becomes a realistic event.
