I love your budget break-down… your wedding is so beautiful. I hope the two of you are happy forever!

We are also relying on the talents/generosity of friends in keeping our budget down… I wish we had access to a free space where we could make our own food though! That seems like such a huge money-saver.

You’re my budget wedding hero! Unfortunately I don’t have any friends with nice backyards and nobody in my family can cook for 100 pplso I’ll have to spend some money there. Great advice though, I just wish I had more talented friends jejeje ;).

You had a beautiful wedding on such a small budget! I have a couple questions though, if you don’t mind?

Do you know exactly what kinds of flowers you used? Which were the cheapest ones?

Did you buy gifts for your wedding party?

Did you have a rehearsal or rehearsal dinner, or just skip all of that?

How much did you spend on invitations and postage?

Where did you stay that night? Did you get a hotel or did you already live together nearby?

Thanks for posting πŸ™‚

Thanks for sharing! That is awesome how you were able to pull of a beautiful wedding for so little. And you should be thankful that you have people who love you and were willing to put their time and effort into the wedding.

@Ms.Pink: Aw, thanks πŸ™‚ I’m trying to cut back on my wedding budget but I”m having troubles. I am thinking about carnations also πŸ™‚ Did you do corsages and bouts for parents and grandparents and godparents?

I actually promised my BMs to help pay for their dresses as a gift, I was just curious what you spent for each Bridesmaid or Best Man on a budget, since I’m not sure what’s fair/reasonable to them without breaking my own bank too, haha.

So out of curiosity, is your budget what you spent, not counting the gifts others gave, such as the cake and rehearsal dinner and those sorts of things? Or did you include those in your overall total?

@Ms.Pink: Okay, that makes sense πŸ™‚ My dad has threatened not to attend my wedding if there’s no alcohol, and he was serious πŸ™ Joys of living in Wisconsin.

One last thing- how did the ladies feel about not having corsages? I’m worried that our moms, gradmas, and my godmother would be hurt if the men got bouts and they didn’t get anything?
