Looks Good! 🙂 I wish our budget could be $5,000. Living in Southern California, unfortunately the cost of living is REALLY expensive. 🙁 I too am paying for everything on my own and most of my ceremony and reception are DIY! Thank God I am crafty! What will you be doing for decoration?

@gigglebox:  whoa, this looks great! I wish we could have a venue for $25, but I refuse to get married on the beach, lol. I’m not engaged yet, but we’ve tentatively set our budget at $20,000.

It’s so nice to see a budget closer to mine! I’m trying to work for 3k for a Charleston wedding while some women say they “only have $20,000” to work with! haha oh the things I could get with that! lol

That’s awesome! Have you included beverages in your budget? Some of the leftover $ could buy champagne, non-alcoholic drinks, and maybe some dessert wine or brandy?

Also, there have been a lot of threads about how people paid for their weddings over the years – pretty much nobody goes into debt for them, thank goodness! It’s possible to have a lovely wedding at any price point.

@gigglebox:  haha, well I live in Florida, and we were both born and raised here, so the last place I want to get married is the beach. I want to get married in a mountain-y area, but that proobably won’t ever happen, since our friends and family won’t really be able to make it there.

@gigglebox:  Yeah, I’ve been there a lot and I just don’t want to do it there. For me, beaches are no big deal and not special, so I’d want to have my wedding somewhere special. However, someone who is not from Florida probably disagrees with me haha.
