    So far, we’re right on track with everything! But we still have a little over 2 months to go! I’m crossing my fingers that we stay in budget :]

    140% (gulp) but it was because we thought that was all we would have, then we were able to have acess to some more money, mostly through saving and working overtime!

    Under budget by 6%! We’re currently at $7500 of a possible $8000, but since there’s still a little time left I may try to find a way to put that last $500 to good use…

    we were about $3000 over. i wanted to spend $10,000, my husband didn’t really care if we went over, but i did. i just thought it was sooo crazy b/c i diyed a lot and i did a ton of research to find inexpensive things. when we went through the list we couldn’t cut back on anything. i guess i didn’t realize how much each different thing costs.

    We’re going to come in around $21000 for an originally hoped/planned $18000 budget. But everyone told me I was too optimistic on my budgeting, so it doesn’t come as a huge surprise. Most of the overage ($2000) comes from photography, and the rest is food. I wanted to keep it around $30 a plate, but we are going to be about $38 after taxes and tip.

    Our original budget was $10k including everything. My fiance and I have spent about $8000 and each of our parents have spent about $1,000. Our wedding is in 4 days so I think we did pretty good!

    We are on target to spend double our original budget! But I think my parents started our budget low and knew that things were significantly more expensive.

    Well I will say this…. our budget is now almost double what it was to start. But it was a discussed decision… it wasn’t just like “oops we spent double!”

    @corgitales- I wouldn’t consider that exceeding your budget, but rather, readjusting your budget 😉
