Out budget is $60,000 and so far we have spent about $12,00…$48,000 to go! A HUGE chunk of that is the reception so we wont be able to pay anything down until we get the final guest count. *sigh*

We’ve only paid about 30% of our total budget so far. Ugh.

Budget is around $8,000.  All my vendors we are using are paid in full, except a final $500 deposit of the venue.  I still need to alter my dress and Bridesmaid or Best Man, tastings for cake and catering (already scheduled for the next 2 weekends).  Really, I am ready to go, it is just a matter of doing what I already have planned when the approriate time comes.  I am a huge planner though, so I am really loving every aspect of the planning.

OMG! I don’t even want to think about it. Ugh wedding is 10k spent out five and owe about five more. Almost all vendors are paid except photographer, transportation and video which is all in one. So close, but so far away and I have just graduated with my masters and still job looking bummer.

Our budget is around $25,000 total for everything, including honeymoon. We’ve already paid about $5,000. We’ll be paying more & more of it as it gets closer to the wedding.

$25k total. Of that, $6k already paid out but the cash is on Hand for the rest.

We are charging everything that we can, and only giving checks to vendors who won’t take card. We’ll pay the card off straight away. We want the protection of a credit card, like if a vendor gies bankrupt I would much rather ask Amex for my money back than get in line behind all the other unsecured creditors in hopes I might one day get a tenth of my deposits back. Plus the miles/points don’t hurt!

Around 36k, excluding honeymoon. We have about half of it paid off already. I loved having a monthy pay schedule for the venue!

we’ve paid about 1/3 of it, not counting wedding rings or honeymoon.  But the tickets for the honeymoon are already booked on my frequent flyer miles!
