    We don’t really have a set-in-stone budget (my mom is allergic to budgets, I think), but my goal is to keep it under 10K. We’ve got about 6 spent so far on venue/catering…so I think it’s feasible.

    Begrudgingly, our budget it about $20,000 but I think we might be going over.  If it was up to me I’d rather have a budget of less than 5K.

    Ugh, ours is way more than we wanted too!  Probably between $25,000-30,000.  We made all these big plans before really thinking about the cost.  It’ll be great so I’m not too regretful but I do think modesty goes a long way when you’re planning a wedding!

    Blah, I hate thinking about budgets especially since we’re paying for a lot of it ourselves.  Our budget/actual figures will be about $21k

    We set a budget of 8K (in reality we thought it was going to be 10K) and we ended UNDER budget at a little over 7K!!! Yeah!!!

    Ours is close to $100K, but our parents are paying for it – my parents the bulk. And they insisted that we have everything top-of-the-line including the band which was close to $12K (which I think is insane!!). If we were paying for it, I promise you we would have a courthouse wedding followed by a nice steak dinner with our parents, not even siblings 🙂

    My parents are paying for the wedding, my dad set the budget at $25k but my mom said as long as it is less then $30k we are ok. I really want to keep it under my dads limit but its at their house so really my mom is doing most of the planning.

    Our first budget was $10K, but when we started estimating we wittled it down to $5K (all-inclusive).

    We are aiming for $25k or less!  It’s pretty insane to think about all the money spent in planning a wedding– especially here in LA!  🙁

    Ours was a little over $6k I think.  I’m not completely sure because we didn’t keep track of it.  We had only about 30 guests though, which kept the bill down.
