When people ask how much my wedding costs, I am never sure what to include. It makes sense not to include things like honeymoon and engagement rings, but what about the dress and accesories? The groom’s suit? The wedding bands? What’s the rule of thumb?

We’ve been including everything but the ering, our wedding rings, and our honeymoon. Those are extras in our eyes. Everything from the invites, to thank you gifts/cards, to the dress/tux are all wedding costs as far as I’m concerned. Our budget even includes the postage to mail all the invites, thank yous, shower thank yous, etc.

@Cordellia: I’m including everything but the engagement ring (since that was in the pre-wedding planning phase) and the honeymoon.

When people ask how much my wedding costs, I say “It costs enough” because that’s NONE of their beeswax!
For my own purposes, I include everything we split 50/50 – so everything but the e-ring.

I didn’t include my e-ring, honeymoon and wedding bands, but included anything else that contributed towards my wedding day. That included 2 rental houses for both our families, as I would otherwise have had to include accomodations too.

When adding it up for ourselves, we generally included everything but the engagement ring and the honeymoon. But are there a lot of people asking you that question? It seems a little inappropriate – you don’t have to answer them! I don’t think anyone other than us and my parents knew how much we spent on the wedding.

@Cordellia: I’m counting everything except my engagement ring and the honeymoon. Those expenses are separate in my mind.
I have receipts from the stamps I bought in the envelope with the wedding receipts.

@Cordellia: I would say everything except the e-ring and honeymoon. So everything directly involved with the wedding itself.
