Hi bees! I LOVED seeing the huge range of wedding budgets and experiences in the How much did your wedding cost? thread (http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/how-much-did-your-wedding-cost-just-for-fun/).
I wanted to start a thread for budget brides to share their breakdowns with those of us hoping to plan budget weddings! There are so many different sites online saying what percentage of your budget each element should cost, but it’s so much more helpful to hear about real experiences! Hopefully this hasn’t been over-done, because the most recent thread I could find like this with many responses was 3 years old, which seems out of date by now.
Include whatever info (or photos) you want, but PLEASE include location, number of guests, and total cost. I’m personally really interested in how much you spent on photography, food, and alcohol, because those seem to be some of the biggest expenses. Some suggestions (stolen from the 3-year-old post):
When (in/out of season, day of week):
How Many People:
Dance Floor Rental:
Misc. Rentals (chairs, tables, and platterware):
Bridal Party Gifts:
