    Just tell them you’re spending exactly what you budgeted, and smile big 🙂 It’s a polite way of saying none of their stinkin’ buisness.

    I wouldn’t lie about the price at all. Weather its down grading or upgrading. If its someone close esp. someone dress shoping themselves I would tell them. If its someone I wasn’t comfortable telling it to then I would just say I don’t know the exact #’s right of the bat.

    @erinleigh1:  Big 2nd!  Love that answer. 

     

    It’s really none of their business and it’s a rude question~ unless, it’s another bride trying to figure out her own budget and then I would be honest.

    i dont think it is anyone’s business what we are spending on anything – and i think it is horribly declasse for someone to ask . . . if anything – i would say, “i am spending exactly enough to get the wedding i want”

    “Enough.”  I don’t think that’s anyone’s business.

    It depends on who they are. If its someone else planning a wedding and is asking so they can set their own budget or get an idea of how much services cost in your area, I would absolutely share. That could lead to some competition on jealousy and judgement so use your best judgement on their intentions.

    I would just tell them, but I’m a very open person about a lot of things in my life. If that makes you uncomfortable, then you should listen to other posters. <3 Sorry you have to deal with this.

    Depending on how well I know the person, I might tell them the individual price of something. Not even my mother knows what our ballpark number is for overall budget though, she might have a heart attack.

    I wouldnt mind sharing my “BUDGET GOAL” but I’d never share financial info with anyone that is not contributing!

    I would tell them, ‘uhh, I don’t know.’  If you tell them a number and it’s too low to their standards, they’ll talk to out of it.  If it’s too high, they’ll talk you out of it.  Don’t think it’s their business, so just go with the IDK.

    I don’t say anything.  Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever been asked.  But if I was, I would just smile pretty and say, “Well, shug, I am spending just enough.”
