Alright, here we go!

Hair: $55 (friend works at a salon, coming to the house, no extra charge), doing own make-up
Photography: $1000 – 2 shooters, 7 hours, full rights to photos (colleague of mine but professional photography business)
Food: approximately $1500 – doing our own pig roast and all the fixings for a taco buffet (we will be hiring my lunch ladies to man the serving tables for about 200 more), including odds/end, silverware, napkins. I”m okay with nice looking plastic. 🙂

Cupcakes: estimated $450 (over 300 cupcakes and a small 6 inch cake for us) FH wants red velvet, so red velvet he will get!
Groomsmen ware: FH outfit, ties for all the boys estimating $350 (no tuxes, just nice dress khaki pants, blue shirt and tie)
Flowers: Sam’s Club – $250 – DIY bouquets/bouts and enough for flowers for centerpieces
Centerpieces – approximately 250 (mostly DIY)
Grand total: 9,810
That being said, some of it is estimated, and I know that we will go over with extra stuff here and there, but we are truly trying to stay as close to 10,000 as possible.
I don’t think I am going to get a wedding band, and we already had Fiance (long story). Since we are having it at our house, we will be putting some money into landscaping and improvements, but I am not couting that as it is equity into our home in the long run! 🙂
