I’ve created an excel spreadsheet for an estimated cost/budget of everything. For one, I have the exact cost of my wedding photographer and going to put down our deposit on our venue of choice. How much did everything cost or will cost for you bees?

our wedding cost about 18k total (Including: dress and alterations, venue which included food and alcohol, DJ and uplights, Invitations, photography, flowers, cake, favors, centerpeices and fauxtobooth 🙂

$5000.00 including everything from the dress to the honeymoon (were doing a DW)

But seriously.. somewhere around 5k.

Mine will go up to 6K if I have to get a photographer. But right now *fingers crossed* an attendee of our wedding is a photographer.

7000$ with everything. Whats DW?

We had planned on 14K, but I think we’ll end up closer to $17K (both #s not including honeymoon). His parents decided to contribute more than we had thought, so it’s not as though WE’RE spending much more. It came in very handy when, for example, the quote from the florist came in about $700 more than I had budgeted for. 😛

My Man deals with the budget. Pretty sure we started at it wanting to be about 20K and now its hovering around or a little above 30K Im pretty sure. :/
In NYC this is a mediocre wedding

I don’t even want to think about it sometimes.. My parents contributed 20k, so I’m attempting to stay under that (does not include the dress). If I go over, it’s out of my pocket, and if I’m under, well then I get money.
I’m attempting to stay under, but I have a feeling we will end up just at, or just over. We are already around 6k, with another 8-10k in food, and we still need to figure out flowers.

ps. That doesnt include my dress alterations, shoes, veil, makeup, and little bit of money I give my boss for my hair. Trying to pick up all of that with my own tip money

Our original budget was $30k but we then extended it to $35k. I’m hoping we can make it in around the original 30 though. We have a fairly large guest list for our area and fell in love with an expensive reception venue which since it’s our one and only wedding day we decided to splurge on it.
ETA: Our budget includes rings as to me they are a expense for the day but honeymoon is not included.

our budget was 10k, but we ended up at 13k. however, i think my initial budget was unrealistic, as we ended up having 225 guests in attendance.
13k does not include rings or honeymoon, but everything else.

We’ve budgeted $12,500 and so far we’re way under budget for almost everything (everything except the venue, food and alcohol which was pretty much what we expected it to cost) so we’re doing great, yay!
Our budget does not include wedding bands or our honeymoon.

Ours is going to end up costing around $23000
