- Wedding: October 2013 - Tybee Island, GA
Okay so I just sent our final payments off for everything for our wedding on October 26th!!!
Our budget is $5,000
Simply, that is too much for a wedding to me! LOL I could use this for a down payment on a house, and get out of our apartment. But anyways…. Heres the break down:
Venue: $25 (Beach Permit)
Videographer: $500 (would be cheaper, but i want the stupid trailer!) LOL
Bride attire: $750 (including alterations) (got dress marked down from $1300) at a small botique
Grooms attire: $110 (including a vest rental) (bought some slacks and a shirt from khols!)
Makeup & Hair: $175 I could go all DIY; but I want to feel pretty! LOL
Beach House (Reception & accomodations): $603.36
Rings: $1300 (not including e. ring)
Guitarist (for ceremony only): $100
Food: $100 (Dessert Reception) (alot of DIY) (includes our 2 tier cake)
Music: FREE (ipod & stereo)
Now since October 26th has still yet to get here… I’m sure we may splurge $400 someplace else.
But for me and my FI we were bound and determined to have this set budget.
Now since we haven’t had our wedding yet, I am not giving my references or who I’m going with because I have gotten to prove themselves yet. But that will definately happen in my recap in 46 days!!!! 🙂 I hope this has been helpful. And to prove to some of you bees who doesnt think its possible to have a nice wedding, without going into debt… it is!!
*Also note FI and I are paying for EVERYTHING! If we had family that was chipping in to help, i’m sure the budget would have been a little higher 😛
