  • Wedding: June 2016

1. 107 guests (we have a final number at last!)

2. Columbia, SC

3. Right around $20k, I think, including everything but the honeymoon, rehearsal dinner, and tips, since those haven’t been paid yet, which, while a terrifying amount, is pretty much what I expected.

 We saved in a lot of places- we have no DJ (iPod) and no florist (paper flowers), and we don’t have real glassware- but we did spring for good booze and good food, I am paying for my bridesmaids’ hair and makeup, and my dress was pretty pricey. It all worked out in the end.

1) Number of guests? 82

2) What is your location? Malibu, California

3) What was the final cost of your wedding? $14,000. I’m cringing, because I was aiming for $10,000

This includes:
-Buffet Catering
-Bridal/Groom Attire
-Wine and liquor
-Day of coordinator
-Wedding band

It’s tradiation in my FH family that the women just wear the engagement and go without a band. They just upgrade well on into the years. His is pure titatnium and we got it for $50.
Our registry is also a honeyfund because we’ve lived together for so long. So that is not included into the budget.

  • Wedding: May 2016

1. Number of guests: 18

2. Location: Kansas City, MO

3. Cost: about $5,500

We decided to have a small wedding in order to splurge on things that were important to us. We splurged on my dress and our dinner reception, and rented a house for our family to stay in for the weekend. We saved by not needing a DJ or florist, and only paying for 2 hours of pro photography. 

This doesn’t include our rings or honeymoon, which were also pretty big splurges.

3. ~$20,000 including “honeymoon,”   To be fair, I am helping to pay for my parents stay at hotel for one week due to limited finances (multiple medical emergencies as well as basement flooding)
