Hi there, I spent 5200.00 on my wedding and it was perfect. I would not change a thing of that day.  We cut corners, went without certain items and had our reception at a local restuarants banquet room. It was perfect. I believe that when there is a will, there is a way.  I can help if you need any tips or advice.

We’re aiming at $5,000 (we may be going over since we’re now getting a DOC, but she’s so needed, given the problems that will be occuring!). We’re making it work and it’s in no way a hardship, because we’re doing exactly what we’d want, regardless of our low[er] budget!

I’m attempting to stay under 7k if at all possible; this just gives me time to go DIY on everything! Hah. But, seriously, since I plan to only invite 100 or less guests, a ton of DIY, and no alcohol, maybe I can manage this.

We are planning on spending only $1000. Most of the wedding will DIY and we are only having maybe 30 people. So I know it’s doable!

We would love to be around 3k. We’re having the ceremony in the church he grew up in, so that’s free (just have to pay for the pastor’s tip, organist fee- $100, and the janitor fee- $50) Then we’re having the reception in the room at the church which is about $200 dollars to have allll day. We’re having about 60 guests.

I know 3k might sound a lot for that, but we plan on going really big on food since we have a reputation in our families to be the awesome cooks/bakers. 🙂

We’re planning on a 8,000-8,500

And trying to have the best of everything but the only difference everything is either used or on clearance except the venue 🙂

Our honeymoon is our first priority. I voted we elope, but he wanted an actual wedding, so here we go! Hoping under 3,000, definitely not over 3500. Let me just say, lots of friendors and family love.

Ours was under 3k for 75 people including honeymoon. We did it off-season on a Sunday and cut out a lot of the fluff. We could have spent more, but I’m glad we didn’t!

Our budget was 2k with 50 people. But we postponed it because he wants to have a bigger wedding…which probably wont happen because we suck at saving money.
