Ours is doing ok….could be better though. But honestly, the first thing I thought when I read the title was “shit…Sept is 3 weeks away!?!?!”

@Fall_In_Love22:  Date Twin!  I thought the same thing.  I’m still trying to figure out where July went.  Did we skip it this year???

totally out of control… i thought we’d keep it simple and cheap, yet classy, but no, it’s classy alright, but not budget friendly. 🙁

Horrible! My dad backed out of paying for HALF of our wedding and the person who OFFERED to pay for our dj won’t return my phone calls. Did I mention that we also have to find a new dj cuz ours is no longer available?

@MrsDTMajor:  OMg that sounds awful!!  Fingers crossed for you!

Our budget is looking much, much better as it seems we’re having a much lower guest count than originally expected.  Lots of obligations cropped up for people since STD’s went out… kind of happy about it, not gonna lie.  Most of the drop-outs are people I couldn’t identify so much in a line up so no big loss for us, just sad for our parents.

@Hou25:  Budget?. That went so early. Panic would have set in but too tired. x

Yeah, budget is out the window at this point. Luckily we have lots of help!

We stopped looking at our budget a while ago, but we didn’t go too crazy with spending.

Budget? What budget? Innocent

I originally set a $12,000 total budget. It’s going to be about double that when all is said and done.

In my defense, I set that budget before I had any idea what things cost and once money started being spent, I realised I was silly to pick that number.

However, excluding our airfare ($2800), our hotel ($1600), the rental car ($700), and all the other various other costs incurred when traveling (like eating out or needing to buy necessities that I forgot to bring, etc), we won’t actually be that far over the budget. But I neglected to take into account the travel costs when setting a budget.

So I decided to solve that problem by not having a budget! Laughing

I figure, things costs what they cost and we’re far too committed to back out now. I’m going to try to keep costs down as much as possible, but other than that, there’s not much I can do about it now. Oh well.

I’m worrying a little bit — we spent some money we hadn’t earmarked and our big huge rental tab is looming. I know we’ll be fine, I just wish the savings account would go up instead of down!!

We’re mostly on track but that might be because both Fiance and I are accountants
