- Wedding: October 2011
I was reading a post on another forum about how it’s not so easy to compare budget brides to each other because what was included in one wasn’t necessarily included in another.
For example, 2 brides saying that their budget is $10,000 is simple enough. But when you compare the 1st bride having a wedding behind her mother’s home with heavy appetizers versus the 2nd bride who has to pay for a venue and a sit down dinner, then it’s comparing apples and oranges because it’s not the same since the 2nd bride had to pay for ALL of her vendors.
So….what would your budget REALLY be if you had to pay for ALL of your vendors? Or what would you give up if your budget didn’t change but still had to pay for ALL of your vendors?
With that being said, I’m still in the early planning stages but plan on paying for ALL of my vendors. My budget not including rings or honeymoon is $16,000 for 225 people. The only way I’m going to end up not paying for something right about now is if I win a giveaway for something.
