- Wedding: July 2011
So I’m wondering, what exactly did you include in your wedding budget and what didn’t you include?? I know normal things such as food, beverage, photography, videography, flowers, and DJ get included. But what about things like the wedding dress, wedding shoes, hair, make up, invites, groom’s tux, groom’s shoes, rehearsal dinner, Bridesmaid or Best Man and GMs gifts, parent’s gifts, honeymoon, etc?? Did that just end up coming outta pocket?? I hear some bride and grooms just include it ALL in the wedding budget, others just say it’s not included because they are “extras” or “apparel” so they don’t include it.
For us, we aren’t including the price of our apparel (or the alterations), our honeymoon, hair, make up, any gifts, or even the extra printing of our photos. We only included the main things all our guests will benefit from in the wedding budget. Everything else (like gifts) is just icing on the cake extras so we’re paying for that out of the wedding budget.
Please share with us what you did and why. Thanks!!
