Well, we’re still unsure how many people will actually attend, as no invitations have been sent out yet and a large portion of the guestlist are my family friends half the country away, but…

1. Est. 100-150 guests attending, 300 invited.

2. Jackson, Mississippi

3. Budget is sort of nebulous.. just the barest minimum we can get away with is the only idea we have of it. So far the only thing I can think of that we haven’t paid for yet is reception food (we’re DIYing hor doeurves). What we have spent (rings, honeymoon, dress, invitations, flowers) is about $2,000 — I can’t see us spending more than maybe $1,000 more.

Heh, seems very podunk compared to the other budgets I’m seeing. ๐Ÿ™‚

Inviting approx. 190 but hoping for 150 ๐Ÿ™‚

Location is Vermont

Cost, excluding rings and honeymoon and rehearsal dinner, will be around $40k give or take a few.  I feel so bad about it too! You would think that Vermont would be more affordable but nope!

1) 50ish invited, 30ish attended

2) Charlotte, NC

3) I think the final numbers came in around $4000. This included the rehearsal dinner, and his ring. My rings were already paid for and we didn’t take a honeymoon… yet (no money and no time off). 

I’ll admit though, sometimes I get really jealous of the beautiful photographs that brides with professional photographers got. (We had our friends do it.) But other than that I have absolutely no regrets about the sacrifices we made to have a wedding we could afford!

1) 120

2) just outside of Chicago, IL (Forest Park/Oak Park)

3) $12,000, roughly. I didn’t do a strict tally but my folks gave us a $10K budget and his folks paid for the photographer – a really great guy who was just getting started. If we had had to pay for it ourselves it would have been a $600 wedding. ๐Ÿ™‚

2. Rural Minnesota

3. $10k

We are paying for everything on our own and I am lucky that my soon to be Mother-In-Law is a wedding planner on the side so we are  able to use her decorations, advice, planning, and "ins" with other vendors. ๐Ÿ™‚
