I totally forgot about stamps!! They are small, but can get expensive in great quantities!

Favors.  It’s not something that we see alot around here so it didn’t come up in the buget brainstorm… but I love all the fun themed ideas out there!

Ouch, vendor gratuties might have been painful one to miss. Hope you don’t get burned too bad. 🙂

@Miss Chapstick: I didn’t even think about them until a fellow Bee posted about it. We had stamps for the Save the Dates and will need stamps for the invites and RSVP cards!!

We totally forgot vendor tips, too! We also needed to hire a “bartender” and a dog-picker-upper! Luckily, we got married the day after pay day!

I forgot about Rehearsal dinner. I know the Groom’s family is supposed to pay, but I should have known that they wouldn’t. Thank god my parents could help out at the last minute!

We totally forgot to include the favors in our budget! We did a donation in lieu of an actual favor, but forgot to put that amount in the budget. Yikes!

Ouch on forgetting the gratuity! Our venue/caterer has a 19% gratuity, hope it didn’t hurt you too much!

I initially forgot the favors in the budget, we’re still awhile out though so it wasn’t a big deal.
