  • Wedding: August 2013

I am getting married in Scotland in August and am planning everything from the suburbs of Washington, DC. We’re looking at around 70 guests I think (we invited just over a hundred and LOTS of them want to come 🙂

We are not hiring a wedding planner. We’ll have a day of coordinator that the venue supplies but that’s it.

I think we’re looking at the $15,000 range. The vast majority of that is food and open bar – the two things that were most important to my Fiance. We’re also getting screwed over my the exchange rate since pounds sterling are so much more than the dollar.

We are not paying for anything for our guests except day of wedding stuff – transportation to the venue and back, reception food and drinks, etc. They are on their own for lodging, airfare, etc. Most of them are extending and making a vacation out of it.

We’re not sure yet about a rehearsal dinner. They don’t really do them in the UK (FI is from Scotland) so his response was – “Wait. We’re paying for the wedding. Why the hell would we pay for everyone to eat the day before? And what the hell do we have to practise???” So, not sure yet what we’re doing. I know we’re getting together with people for drinks, but we won’t be paying for it at all.

We are just doing the ceremony in Scotland, nothing here.
