    • Wedding: October 2016

    I prefer to wear my money 😀 My ring was closer to 10k and we are doing an elopement style wedding in Jamaica and staying there for 10 days! That, including airfare, comes to around $7,500. We chose to splurge on a ring and fancy honeymoon. Fortunately our families are both super supportive and this entire process has been stress-free!

    sorry, at least one vote is wrong there (my bad math skills, lol!)

    I voted 25-5ß% but meant to vot 15-25%… since the poll difference between the two is currently at one vote, I thought I might mention it…

    This is such an interestinf poll, thanks for makeing it

    ilovesophia:  hmm we didn’t set a budget for the wedding but have been keeping everything at the lowest costs as much as possible!  While my ring was appraised at $12,500 – my Fiance only paid under $4k because of my dad’s “connections”, he’s a goldsmith by trade and made my ring.  Right now our wedding costs are at $25k and I’m in Toronto Canada.

    FutureMrsHall15:  I’m not sure if you realise but 5k of 25k is 20% not 5%. It doesn’t matter but thought I’d mention it.
