@HonoraryNerd:  Maybe this is ridiculous but my flight to my wedding. It’s in my home state. I fly there a few times a year and I normally would at that time of year anyways, so I don’t see it as an extra wedding expense. 

I’m not including gifts for each other in our budget either. 

There have been a few decor pieces I just bought and forgot to add to the budget so I didn’t include them either. I figure it just comes out of my regular expenses. I suppose it’ll make a difference but not enough for me to care! Not worth getting all worked up because we are not precisely within budget!

@HonoraryNerd:  I can’t think of anything. I’m detailing every purchase to the extreme because every penny saved helps me put more toward catering/venue, which is the biggest expense and concern I have. We definitely didn’t expect it would be that expensive when we started planning. I even included our e-rings in my spreadsheet.

I would say, everything that’s related to the honeymoon however, is not part of my wedding budget (including the passeport I’ll have to get).
