    our budget was $25K but we ended up at closer to $35K or $40K.  my parents paid and in the end they felt some things were worth spending more on so they let the budget go over.  i’m so thankful for their generosity!  even tho that’s a pretty average price tag we only had 160 guests so it was able to go far.

    I don’t have a budget per se, but I’d like to hover around 25k.

    I was aiming to have the wedding cost $15k, but in the end we ended up at $23k. It wasn’t so much that we went over (although, there were some things that we went over on), as I didn’t have a realistic idea of what things were going to cost.

    I’ve put about $2500 into it so far, but I would like to stick to around $5000.00 and I absolutely believe I can do it 🙂 I got a great deal on a venue and my dress was paid for when we first got engaged almost 2 years ago!

    We’re budgeting with $10k as our absolute highest limit. We will probably hit right around $8k. That includes wedding rings but does not include the honeymoon.

    Mine started at 5k, and now is hovering around 8k including everything but the ering. Oh well, I’ve come to terms with it…

    probably going to end up around 35k. It’s hard to say because we’re doing a combination of DIY and vendors. Our venue is 26k, which includes all the food and drink.

    Absolutely no more than 10k.  I wanted it to be more like 5k, but fiance wanted a bigger wedding so the costs are going up.  I’d like it to come in more like 8k.  Hopefully we will be able to manage that.

    I want to keep it under $5000.  My parents are paying for the Reception so that will keep costs low. I am planning alot of DIY projects to keep things down and we’re having a cocktail reception which will lower our decor numbers as we have no need for big huge centrepieces, escort cards, etc.  We are inviting 175-200 people.
