My replica is costing 2.67.% of our $5000 budget. I can live with that!

Less than 1%, not including accessories or alterations.  Although I got a great deal on my dress, I was only prepared to pay up to 2.5%.

My dress was $100 and my budget is $2000. We will probably come in way under budget as our venue is only $150 and our food will be $500. Most decorations and centerpieces are coming from idea and dollar tree. We are using artificial flowers from dollar tree as I personally do not like real flowers. They will die after the wedding, and why start my new life with something that will die. At least with the artificial we can put them in the ground around the pool when we get home, as well as drop abouquet at my moms grave afternoon the way to our honemoon.

My wedding budget is $3000 and my dress, which I bought on milanoo.com was $143, so I am not sure what that amounts to percentwise, but getting the dress cheap helped me get a few extras for the reception. I’m pretty happy with it.
