Mine is $5500, but still in the planning process of course.  Hopefully we’ll stay under that!

Our budget is 10,000 but it looks like it’s going to be actually $6-7,000

As close to $5000 as possible, but so far I haven’t spent a penny. Most of my budget will go to the venue, food and drink. The rest will be free, DIY, or cheap. 

We’ll see how close I can keep it!

Our budget is theoritically $15,000 ( 5 from us, 5 from my parents, and 5 from his). We are trying to find ways to cut this cost but still have my dream mountain wedding. What is your budget like?

 

@JacobsMama:  wow! That’s awesome. I would love to hear how you are dropping your costs.

Our budget was £4,000 but it looks like it’ll be £5,000 including reception & honeymoon.

@FutureMrsSarah:  17,500    

10,00 was our budget and my dad gave us 7,500 as an engagement present (he didnt wanna call it contributing to the wedding because he said we could do what we wanted with it). This doesn’t include rings (no clue what my FI spent on my e-ring) but does include our honeymoon.

My budget is 6,000 but it will be a really small event of about 60 people.  Most of the money wil be spent on venue and dinner.

Yeah, we’re not having a honeymoon, at least for the time being.

 

And the wedding industry isn’t as crazy here in Czech Rep as it is in the States, so most things are at least reasonable, if not actually cheap. My venue and food (buffet) for 150 is about $4000. I know it will be more than 5, but I can dream!

Oh, and a friend is doing the photography for free.

  • Wedding: September 2013 - Pavilion at Rocky Neck State Park

After everything was all said and done, including travel expenses, my dress/alterations, ect. we spent just around $16,000 to $19,000 (not sure the total bill for the caterer since my parents contributed the money for that to the wedding)

@FutureMrsSarah:  I am in the same boat completely. We are building our dream home right now ( should be done around Christmas time, YAY) so we are trying to keep that in mind with our budget. Everything in the Rockies is just so darn expensive though. We still need to finish our basement so it has been hard because we are wavering with the budget because my Fiance keeps thinking – well 15,000 would finish the basement for us… and I totally agree and have a hard time with that but still want a nice wedding too…
