My under 5 K breakdown for a wedding of 50 guests:
Venue (includes beachfront ceremony with arbor and 50 chairs, set-up and break down included, private dining room in restaurant for reception complete with linens and china, restuarant gift certificate, two nights in hotel room for honeymoon, champagne and chocolates, and discount on anniversary stay at hotel)- $700
Food- Probably going to be around $1800 after reception dinner, candy buffet, and desserts. Not having a “cake” just cupcakes.
Veil and Tiara- $10 (eBay)
Shoes- $10 (gonna wear flip flops)
Makeup- gonna do my own
Hair- Not sure, but will most likely be free
Tux- $60 rental
STDs- Free on Vistaprint, just gotta pay like $7 shipping
Invitations- Somewhere around $80
Flower Girl dress- $17 (eBay)
Decor- Someone is giving me a lot of their wedding decor. I will just have to buy fake flowers for the centerpiece vases she’s giving me. Not sure how much that will be, yet.
Bouquets/Bouts- Not sure how much I’ll get those for, either. I plan to start scouring through Michael’s and Hobby Lobby soon. But, I’m making them myself.
Photography/Videography- We have a professional style camera, so someone is going to take our pictures for us and we’ve also got a video camera that will be used for taping the event.
Not sure if I’m forgetting anything, but that about sums it up!
