- Wedding: June 2017
I’m posting this question to get honest answers, and trust me, it’s not to be rude or judge, it’s just to make sure I am falling in line and not going crazy with my budget. If you are uncomfortable answering the question, politely move on 🙂 I am not posting this to begin a thread war. Thanks!
I am at the end stage of planning where the major expenses (ie- venue, caterer, dj, photography/videography, dress) are all accounted for.. and from here on out it’s smaller ticket items to decide how much to spend on (ie- hair/makeup artist, stationary, bridesmaid gifts, etc). I am hoping to get true dollar amounts from REAL people not just bridal magazines, wedding websites, or Martha Stewart- as we all know, there are SO many variables to the numbers they put out.
How much did you spend on your wedding TOTAL? Including but not limited to:
If you’d like, also include your honeymoon 🙂 Just state you are doing so!
Also, if you wouldn’t mind including how many guests were accounted for and where your wedding was that would be great.
I really appreciate your honesty. We are getting married in Charleston SC (where we live) and I am pulling my hair out at how expensive it is! I feel like I am being very money-conscious and the budget still gets higher and higher. I would like to show my fiance and our parents that our personal budget is NOT crazy (especially for the area). All in all I believe we will spend close to $28-29k including all of the above + honeymoon
