Are you having any other decor or centerpieces or is that included? Are you having favors or videographer? That seems like a ridiculous bar set up fee but there’s probably not much you can do about it. What about accomodations for the night of? I would also include tipping in your budget. Are you having a limo or any other transportation? What about the officiant?

I know you said this is basic, but I’m surprised by 1000 for cake and 1000 for invitations! That must be an awesome cake!!! Does the 2500 for dress include alterations?

@Allyg:  I’ve seen some great options that are printed for you on etsy that you might be able to do better cost wise.

@Allyg:  Did you incluse alterations with the dress budget?  Might sound silly, but I didn’t.  There was another $500.

@Allyg:  It definitely adds up quickly! Even using coupons and buying stuff only when it was on sale our entire wedding is going to cost about $30,000. We are having about 250 people. After my wedding is done I’m going to add up all my receipts to see exactly how much everything costs.
