You’ve already got some great suggestions, but here’s my take on it!
Church rental: $1,000.00
Rental: $300.00 (rent for what – chairs, tables, porcelain?)
Food: $500. Food is always more expensive than you think and it sucks to do it on a super strict budget, $5 per person isn’t a lot – but it’s doable. I would consider making lots of small cookies before the wedding, stuff that you can store in the freezer.
Drinks: $100. Considering the budget I think an alcohol free reception makes most sense.
Linens: $100 – DIY, you have lots of time! You can find great deals here.
Misc décor: $70
Veil/headpiece: $50, check etzy or sales
Shoes: $40, I just got mine on sale for $39 at David’s Bridal, there are lots of cheap options!
Makeup: $60 – book a make up appointment at Sephora or MAC, they only require that you spend $50 on produce, then DIY.
Nails: $20 or DIY using produce you already have
Jewelry: Don’t spend money on cheap jewellery you most likely won’t wear again, go with something you have or borrow something from your mum – you need something borrowed anyway!
Wedding rings: $300. Try to get something that will last and that you both like!
FH’s suit: $200.
MOH’s dress: $60. Get a cute dress she can wear again, perhaps something like this! Modcloth also have a lot of nice options.
Invitations: $100, but consider using an evite and ask guests to RSVP by email or phone.
Bouquets: $60 calculated on you, your MOH (do you have other bridesmaids?) and the flower for your groom – DIY using flowers from whole sale (practice before).
