We are extremely lucky, since the whole reception (including venue, music, decor, floral arrangements…) and honeymoon are being paid for by our parents.
We still have to pay for the Church, the floral arrangements at the Church, the music for the ceremony, the invitations, the photographer and the videographer.
My grandmother (who is a professional seamstress) is making my gown, my baptism godparents are paying for my shoes, and my sister gave me my earrings this past Xmas.

Just curious…I have my deposits paid for everything but my vendors don’t require final payment until two weeks out or the day of. Are y’all paying your vendors early? We have the cash to pay them but have just been sitting on it until closer to the wedding.

vmason009: I asked my vendors to accept full payment before the wedding. Like my photographer was a $300 deposit, and the rest was due 14 days before the wedding, but she agreed to accept paypal payments whenever I have the money, so I’ve been making installments of $300/month.

Well, we are a little bit over budget right now [15k was our budget]. I’m hoping the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and my alterations will be less than I had originally planned so it’ll counteract the uppage in budget.
Here’s what we’ve got paid off so far!
