- Wedding: March 2012
Let’s see … Fiance and I (I mean the Hubs and i..omg) were aiming for $5k for the wedding.. Let’s see how it went
Dress -$300 deposit on a $600.00 dress and it neeeeeeeeeded alterations. Friend from work gave me her dress, the same one I picked. I got store credit for $300. and spent $175 on alterations. (gave each of my 3 BM’s $100.00 toward their dress) sooooooo Dress $475.00
Location- 2625.00 for 85 people, we screwed ourselves here … it was a friday wedding during lent, so we had roast pork, chicken and pasta (for the catholics ..me included-no idea what i was thinking having a wedding on friday during lent) Oh and this included both the ceremony and reception
DJ $300.00, he was amazing… he kept the time, things flowing, suggested things, handled the ceremony music.
Ties- $100.00 for Hubs and 3 groomsmen. they wore black suits and the ties we bought them.
Gifts …. $25.00 for 3 bridesmaids
………… $35.00 for 3 groomsmen
…………$8.00 for 3 flower girls
Flowers -silk $125.00
my shoes/rehersal dinner/ spanx … free -GC from mother in law last christmas
centerpieces provided by the location
no programs/favors/assigned seating … and everyone had a great time sitting with people they hadn’t seen in awhile (some of our relatives knew each other unbeknown to us)
Photography .. a HUGE SORE POINT … we had a friend of family doing it for our gift ..she flaked out on wednesday, we were getting married on friday. A friend of a friend stepped in and is working with us on it… should be about $300.00
so the total is $4854.00 .. Hubs was like .. that’s so much $$$$
I’ll add more if i think of something
no stress… thought if we had toooo much of a vision and things don’t turn out right is what makes you stressed ..so we eliminated alot of stuff. My entire family (we are talking 3rd cousins) had a great time.
