What’s your budget? $20K, it may go slightly over but we are trying to stay as close to that as possible 

Where is your wedding being held? Westchester, NY

How many people are you planning on having attend? 75

How are you funding? Credit cards? Savings? Incremental spending? I also refuse to go into debt for the wedding! So we are using a savings account that we have set up specifically and also paying incrementally.

What’s your budget? around £8k – $12/13k – not including honeymoon

Where is your wedding being held? UK countryside.

How many people are you planning on having attend? 40 day, 76 total by evening

How are you funding? Savings and earnings! Small contributions from my mum and FI’s parents. Lots of DIY – which fits with the ‘aesthetic’ of my wedding, unlike someone on a previous thread lol

@hl247:Same here! Our budget was originally $10,000 (not including honeymoon or rings), but that is the cost of the venue alone. We are in the DC area as well. It is really expensive here, especially when you mention the word “wedding”.

100 people

Funding ourselves. Incremental spending.

Our budget is 5000.00 for 100 people and I think I can pull it off.  It will be simple and elegant.  We made a choice several months ago whether we wanted a big wedding to buy a house. We chose the house and I dont regret it. We closed escrow in June and would do it all over again.  🙂
