- Wedding: March 2011
So our original wedding plans involved a budget of $13,500 with about $3,000 for the honeymoon. We realized a few weeks ago it just wasn’t there and some money we thought was there had fallen through (we learned to make sure we can pay for everything ourselves and if money we told would be contributed is there, great, if it’s not, we have it anyway). We’re almost done planning our new wedding (which will be done in less than half the time of the first) and we realized how much we’ve saved. Total it’ll probably be max $6,000 for the wedding and $1500 for the honeymoon. I just wanted to share this because I’m very proud of us for being able to pull this off and I’ve also learned that we’re all a lot less stressed now and it’ll still be a lovely wedding with only those that are the closest to us.
