- Wedding: September 2012
I loved these posts when I was beginning to plan, so here’s my budget breakdown now that it’s all over. We ended up having 93 guests for a formal evening wedding in Cleveland.
There are a few things in here that are a little skewed: Our tips were lower than they otherwise would have been because most of our vendors were self employed. I only paid for my makeup because my Mom was nice enough to pick up the cost of hair styling for me and my sister. The rings category only includes our wedding bands, since my engagement ring was purchased separately. We ended up covering the cost of hotel rooms for DH’s siblings because otherwise they would have driven home (30 miles after about 6-8 drinks, bad plan). And, we decided that we needed to pay for chair covers because the chairs just didn’t match the room! Overall, we were about 10% over budget, including a splurge on our honeymoon.
