Oh no, that is stressful! If you haven’t already, maybe decide on each you and your FIs top three more important things and focous there. You might be able to cut a little more in the less important areas (though you seem to already be doing a great job!). I might also make a spreadsheet to keep track of exactly what everything is costing and try to cut anything you can down from there. Good luck!

So I’m confused, what did you actually spend the money on? How at you at $14K if you cut so many corners, and spent so little on Decor, brooch bouquets, etc….

Have you kept track of your purchases on a spreasheet? I’m shocked to see that your even cooking the cocktail hour type reception and still hitting such a high number. Does this total include your honeymoon?

yeah, i am also a little confused. my budget is at about 14K with slight help from my father. and i have not done any DIY yet, but i will for the bouquets. I use excel that has a spreadsheet for a wedding budget. writing everything down will help understand where the money is going. maybe your venue or honeymoon is eating up large chunks of the budget, which is normal.

So, what’s making the price go up? My budget was $10,000 as well, but I have spent about $12,000. I didn’t cut as many corners as you. And I’m having a dinner. I can’t figure out what the money is going too.
