    For everything (including rings & honeymoon) it was about $22,000. People freak out about the cost but honestly it was all perfect and exactly what we had hoped for, so we don’t regret it at all.

    $20k including rings, mini-moon, rehearsal dinner, etc. Our initial goal was $10k, but we splurged on rings, and hadn’t initially counted rehearsal dinner for 30 or the mini-moon.

    I am aiming for $10k but am DIY as much as I can to save money – plus I got my dress for half what I had planned!  And a great deal on flowers too!  This doesn’t include my Honeymoon and my engagement ring only cost $32 (great-grandmother’s ring just had to get it sized!) so I didn’t include that either haha

    I’d say about $25,000, without rings, honeymoon, or my dress.

    Including honeymoon (2 weeks in Tahiti), rings and wedding, we will be just under 40,000… it sounds so bad when we write it out, but our famlies are helping a lot, and we have been saving for a long time.  Plus we only plan to do this once so why not?!?! we are young professionals with some extra hard earned cash lol why not throw the best party of our lives??

    I started out with unrealistic expectations, I wanted to have a wedding under $8,000. In my area, that is laughable. I can’t even find a nice venue that is priced less than $65 per plate.


    So, the adjusted wedding budget is $12,000 to $15,000, not including honeymoon, e-ring (which I already have).

    I think ours will end up being 25-30k including everything….our wedding venue including all of the food, drink, open bar and ceremony is around 19k, our photographer is around 4k and the dj is around 1,200….that is all we have paid for so far…but besides flowers, honeymoon and wedding bands those are our big budget items…I’m starting to think it will be more towards low 30’s….ouch….

    Recently, I had a complimentary consultation with a planner. She suggested that, although I’m having a small wedding of <75, doubling my budget!!!!

    I know I live in SoCal and want a beach wedding, but double my budget?!?!?  I’m not ready to spend $1000/pp.  

    My original budget… ,$25K including ring and honeymoon…

    Now, I’ll be happy if I keep it equal to or under compare to my ring $$$…
