Did you do invitations? Rings?

It sounds like you did really really well and also had the help of lots of family with gifts and assistance, that is so important to keep your own expenses down.

@mrsbrookes:  Nice! Was the $25 including postage or were they sent online?

Pastor was gifted too. I’m not trying to be negative, I’m just noting them for comparison for others. My Fiance was all “My brother and his wife spent less than $5k on their wedding!” – but the food and alcohol was all gifted… it was really hard for me to explain to him that even though they spent less than that, they received gifts that made the total cost higher. He was using that as his measuring stick for what a wedding could cost but overlooking that one of the most expensive items was given to them as a gift! Made me crazy. It’s just good for people to have that in mind when comparing – they may receive more help from family or they may receive less.

I still think your wedding sounds AWESOME and done on a seriously impressive budget. Not going into debt is the best decision ever.
