Oh, yes. I realized this past week that we are almost $1000 over our budget, and I’m at a total loss as to what’s going to get the cut. We didn’t have a big budget to begin with, but all these little things add up…a lot. I think using silk flowers saved us a lot, and I think I overbudgeted for flowers in general, so that may be where I realize, "Oh, we didn’t have to spend as much money as I thought." We’ll see!

I really don’t want to cut the cost of gifts for the bridal party because I have these lovely necklaces in mind and I don’t want to scrimp there!

That is tough especially when you’ve had your mind on something and then it turns out to be an unnecessary expense.  I’ve had a few minor things to let go of (including custom stamps) and I know it’s frustrating (the worst when you have your heart set on it, and no one else thinks its a big deal!)

In the end, you have to pick priorities of where you want to spend the money you have–even it means giving up some awesome ideas/projects.  Good for you for making that decision though!  Try to focus on the things in your wedding that you’re going to love, and not what you’re missing out on!
