our budget is 15k, not including rings or honeymoon, but with the venue i want we priced it out to be 20k.  so unless we magically come into 5k, i guess it is back to the drawing board.  i am still keeping my fingers crossed though, as i’m not willing to give up on my dream location yet!

Our budget was originally $5k and was going to be a ceremony venue but backyard reception for 50 people or less.  We ended up at $6600 with a reception venue as well and 76 people attending!  All in all, I was happy with it.  The cost did not include my dress, veil, jewelry, or alterations as those were things my mom wanted to pay for separately.  🙂

We orginially wanted uner $20k but the wedding is hovering between $35K-$40K. I am in the DC area so I was expecting crazy prices but was still surprised.  We are invititing about 150 people which didn’t help the price at all.  I am hnow inspired to go update the budget spreadsheet!

Oh boy. We’re trying to come under 8k. I blew up the budget with really high numbers, so if it comes in lower I’ll be really happy.

The honeymoon is $1700 and the wedding rings altogether were $800.

May not sound like a lot, but it’s SOOO expensive!

We originally were aiming for around $20k but now it’s looking more like 30-35k.

I believe we have everything for 3,000 at the most.  Our church and photographer were the most. 495 and 375.  I made invitations myself. my dress was 4500 but I got it alterations and all for 325.  Shoe we 10 favors were 30 tiara was 100 veil was 200, centerpeices we made for 35.  His mom is doing the fowers but that was 100.  Lets just say that we have done everything as cheap as we can without looking cheap.  It has been 3 years in the making so those 3 years came with many sales.

Our wedding is budgeted at just under $25k. This number doesn’t include the honeymoon, our rings, or any of my bridal items (like my dress, veil, shoes, alterations, hair and makeup, etc.) – we didn’t count those in the budget because we already had the money saved for those specific items, but if you add those costs up, our total wedding costs exceed $35k (yikes!!!).

 

Venue/food/alcohol is about $15k

Flowers are about $4k

Photog is about $3,200 (not including albums)

DJ and officiant are both gratis

…plus various other costs that I can’t seem to think of right now!

Ours is $10k. This doesn’t include the honeymoon.

This does include everything that family is paying for. My dress & veil, flowers, band, Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

We will probably spend $17K out of the $20K my parents gave us 🙂 The rest will be used for other expenses if I don’t get a job by July… aah!
