I would include it in the budget. I bought a Polaroid PoGo (photo printer that hooks directly to your camera) and am including that in my budget because I bought it for the photo guestbook.

Your Gocco isn’t just for the wedding.  And think of all the money you’re saving!  What if you count half of the cost? 

I didn’t count Gocco because I plan on selling it on ebay after all the wedding stuff.  Too bad all the screens and lightbulbs are so expensive…

Can I count half the cost of my dress?  I want to sell that, too.

I have 3 different budgets: our monthly household budget, the wedding expenses we’re paying for,  and the overall wedding budget (most of which is being covered by my parents).  

The overall wedding budget reflects most of the stuff on "Our wedding expenses" but not everything. If it were me, I’d list the Goco under April, and then list it on the "OUR Wedding Expenses" sheet with a note that we paid for it out of April’s money.  And I wouldn’t list it in the overall wedding budget.

Does this system make any sense?  Not really, but it’s working for me.  I feel a little more honest about what we’re keeping track of, while trying to spread out the financial burden in differnt pools of money…

If i bought anything intending it for the wedding, whether or not it was reusable after the wedding–it goes in the budget for me.  I bought a more expeensive paper cutter that I wouldn’t have if I hadnt’ DIYed my invitations, but of course I’ll use it again.  I’m still counting it in my wedding budget.

If you count everything in your wedding budget, when your done and you sell some of it, than you can take off the amount you sold it for, so your not fooling yourself, or counting on money you might not possibly get.

Plus its a bonus letting the FI know that you bought it, but guess what it’s something you’ll keep using!
