We’ve stayed (so far) under budget. We’ve gotten some great deals because of the economy we’ve actually gotten some great deals as venders are looking for work.

I can’t say that the economy has impacted our budget or wedding decisions at all.  We’ll still be pulling off what we want, no compromises.  In the end, I don’t want to tell people looking at my wedding photos that "Oh we couldn’t do flowers/food/cake etc because of the economy that year."  On the other hand, vendors have become more flexible about pricing.

ooh, that’s interesting.

I can’t say either that the economy has had much of an impact on our wedding budget, for which I am grateful!  Both my parents and I are both still employed and we are both able to contribute as originally planned to the wedding.  I realized after I made my budget just how small it was in the grand scheme of things, but had the economy be doing better, I can’t imagine we’d spend much more.

@ MightySapphire: I will definitely agree, though, that vendors have been pretty felxible…at least more than I imagined.  That probably contributed to us staying within our budget!

I think we’re going to come in under budget.  I’ve learned so much from various brides that have gone before me, that I’ve been able to use a lot of cost-saving tips.  Plus, we’ve tried to incorporate friends with talent in virtually every aspect of the wedding, and that has really saved us so far.
