Venue and photographer. Everything else, I’m not too concerned about. 🙂

The venue. We’ve also put down our deposits on the honeymoon which is quite pricey but we have a Honeymoon registry so hopefully it’ll come back to us!

Decorations absolutely. Most of that stuff hase a DIY element to it- but I’m spending so muchhh money to make it look good. I’m ok with that though! Photography was sort of expensive for us too.

I mean the venue is expensive too- I guess all we are paying for really to have the venue the the food, which is awesome. And dinner is only $20 a plate, so I feel like we really scored there!

Well, our venue, hiring a band for the reception, my dress and my photographer! After all those vendors were bought I have really tried to stick to my budget. So far flowers have come in 400 under budget and cake will be under budget too!

Mine has definitely been my photographer.  It’s double what we were hoping to pay, but I think it’ll be worth it!  We really loved their personalities and pictures!!!  My dress was also more than I originally wanted to pay, but again, I am totally OK with it!

My dress and veil. I started with a 3,000 budget for both and spend 6,700 for my dress, veil, and jewlery.

Definitely my photographer. I’d love to up our package to include some of the amazing videography they do, but I think Fiance would kill me!!!
