Hello buzzy bees
I thought I would share my (so far) budget breakdown.
Our budget is about $30k -$35k including honeymoon.
Everything in my breakdown is over quoted so when it comes time to have over the $$ I don’t get such a surprise! – I’m sure that won’t work for everyone.. but I’m the type of person that when I was a child, mum would have to send me to the corner shop with $20 just for milk and bread JUST IN CASE prices sky rocketed haha.. I’m quiet strange in that sense 😛 ANYWAY moving on…
99% of what you will see is just copied and pasted from my iPad.. anything with a X at the end has been bought already =]
Hope this gives a small insite and may help a few brides out =]
