    Cut the food budget by serving cheaper food.

    Suck it up and eat the extra cost (literally).

    Skimp in another way (please specify below):

    So you’re at $17,293.00. Did you adjust your 10k budget? That’s still way over.

    Have you already done your invites?  I saved about $500 by getting them fro Michaels, its going to mean that I have to do a little bit of work cause they’re DIY but $500 is $500.  Also, do you really need a cake?  In my opinion, cakes don’t ever really get eaten, unless you plan to serve it as your dessert.  If getting that picture of you and the groom cutting the cake is important you could always have a one tier small cake on top of a foam bottom.  I’ve seen a lot of people do that and you can never really tell the difference.  Or instead of dessert, as someone suggested you could check out a local farmers market and get things a lot cheaper.  Have a dessert table where guests serve themselves as opposed to a full served dessert as part of your meal.

    @grapeslice:  As long as you’re happy with where you’re budget is that’s all that matters!  Congrats, I’m sure that you’re wedding will be everything you’ve both always dreamed off!  🙂

    I’m getting married in Chautauqua too! Where did you have your guests stay? I was thinking of looking into condos in the grounds since it’ll be the off season and I’ve heard they’re pretty cheap.
