Ah, I love it! I’m a budget bride and this is inspiring! I can’t wait to share pics and cost breakdown of my $5k budget wedding – I’m already proud, and it hasn’t even happened yet!

I love reading about weddings that are Fab on a budget! I plan on breaking my budget down on here after our wedding, ours is an 8K wedding & I’m so proud of myself!

I am kind of bothered by your comment “They had a restaurant reception but isn’t it great?”.

We are having our reception at a really neat, modern restaurant in Houston. It’s not because we are cutting corners, but because that’s what we really wanted.

I LOVE 2000dollarwedding, daydreamwanderer!

The $5,000 wedding is an inspiration – I’m going to try EXTRA hard to keep my wedding in this range … and with over a year to plan I’m hoping that will help keep costs low! 

Thanks for sharing!

Wow, looks great, and she’s from my area!  Actually that place is down the street, only 2 minutes from my house.  I think it’s a great feat because this is not a cheap area!

My boss got married at Anthony’s and she brought in her wedding albums for me to see – it was beautiful!

I know this is going to sound pretty harsh, but I’m not all that impressed.  They only had 28 guests!  Of COURSE it was that cheap!  Their pictures are pretty amazing though so I’m guessing most of their money went to the photography.

My next door neighbor got married at Anthony’s and it was so beautiful! Seriously considered doing it there, but didn’t want to be a copy-cat!

@hellohellohello – yeah, sometimes I’m surprised by what different people chose to cut in cutting corners. I guess different people have different things that they consider important though.

I saw a breakdown recently (can’t remember where) of a small wedding where the bride and groom literally spent 50% of their budget on their wardrobe – her dress, his tux; it was like a $8,000 wedding or something like that, and her dress was almost $3,000, plus $800 shoes, etc. and his ensemble was just as much! I was surprised, but, hey, it’s their money – they can spend it however they want!

I’m probably going to get some flack (well, already have on the boards) for keeping my meal under $15 a head but inviting 200 people. It can’t be helped… well, it CAN, but it means a lot to me to have people there, (and honestly with over half my half of the guest list living a six hour flight away or FURTHER, I want to invite plenty of people to ensure at least a few will come!)

No two weddings are alike… and if they were, we wouldn’t need WB!
