We’re going to have a tax return wedding! Fiance and I have been talking about it ever sence I got my dress (super good deal). I have to buy both my bms thier dresses becasue of the finantail situation my mom is it (my younger sisters) and it got us talking about debt. We didn’t really want to get credit out to pay for a wedding, and we wanted to take a really nice honeymoon to italy and pay THAT off in installments.
So I told him with all the DIY posts and info I’ve learned on the bee, I’m sure I can do this for under $4,000!! A fancy beach wedding is nice, and a formal yosemite wedding is nice too, but no debt is even better!
Let the budget planning begin!!

I am with you there. We are going to try and do a 5k wedding. That really leaves 2500 dollars for the church, dj, cake, and decor. The wedding venue with food enough for 140 people was half the bedget at 2500, but I think I can keep it under my budget with the help of all these DIYers. Just picked up the cardstock for my invites this evening and can’t wait to get started on them. I figure I can probably make my invites for about 50 dollars or less.

My Fiance works as a graphic designer, so our invites will be free, We want to get married at a park so either $500 for the rose garden in San Francisco OR the Local 100 acre wooded park in our hometown for free. We’re going with cupcakes from Sams Club and buiding a wooden cupcake tower. I’m thinking on splurding on the chairs (CHiavari) and rosepetals for the aisle but that’s it. Keeping it simple becasue of the already beautiful outdoors!

Good for you. My 5k budget ended up being 6500 because only because I wanted a better photography package,I wanted a reception dress and I forgot to include our mini moon. Considering it was completely pd for by cash inn 3 months, it was a definite achievement.
