September brides, what is your total budget? How much has already been spent (on deposits, dresses, accessories, etc) and how much is left to spend? My total budget is $35,000. I’ve spent about $12,000 and have $23,000 due in payments over the next few months.

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*

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.

$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!
Post # 15
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!
