Oh goodness, everything creeps up on you SO FAST.  I think I blew the budget on about everything.  I was like, I will NOT spend more than $500 on a wedding band, and I ended up with a $1700 one…stupid things like that.  Little by little, the budget just goes up and up and up and up…….

I’d have a heart attack….

My 10k turned into about 12k, but just like you we are NOT going into debt.


As long as you are piling up on the bills and building up debt, then things should be ok

its scary how quickly it all adds up without you even  realising it! its  not even until you look over it that you realise how much it totals to!

our budget was 10k, i think we ended somewhere aroun 13k.

if you can afford it, then i wouldn’t worry about it. your day is going to be so beautiful, and you want to make sure that you, your hubby, and your guests all have an incredible time!
