Right now it is the ceremony and reception venue. The caterer may or may not exceed that.

Photographer, then venue. ($5,500 and $5,000 respectively). There are other things that get close to those amounts, though!

Definitely food and drink. I’m estimating (don’t have a totally solid idea since the alcohol is based on consumption) that it will account for about 55% of our total budget.
