Budget: On target? Way off? Way under?

So ladies, FI and I had a meeting with our planner today. In our meeting we got our running tally to date. We are about 10k over budget. (Yes, yikes!) and it is probably only going to continue to go up. (Double yikes!)


So that leads me to my question... Where are you with your budget?


On target? Blowing it out of the park? Or keeping it under the radar?

$10k over?? Ouch!! I think we are about on target. We have been spending less in some areas to even out spending more in others, so it has been working out nicely!

Like SoLovely, we are over budget on some items and under budget on others.  We are pretty much right on target to be on budget if things go as planned but I know things wont and there are all those little things you forget about so I am pretty sure we will slightly over.  But I am figuring everything out for 180 people which is the max we will have in attendance if everyone we invite shows up, which I am seriously hoping we only have about 160 haha.

We are about $3,000 over budget - and that is after we had budgeted to pay for the Rehearsal dinner, but his parent's just offered... I blame it on our rings & the growing guest list thanks to my FMIL...

Budget? What's a budget? Thankfully my parents are paying for our wedding, but they find it better to just not have a running tally...we've spaced everything out nicely so it's not like 10,000 in one week, it's 300 here, 500 there, so it's easier on them...but I'm sure if we added it all up, we'd be over budget...we're so bad!

we are just about on target. We simply cannot afford to be over budget but the plan is to be under budget for sure. Good luck and happy planning ladies!

We are in Northern Va and want to narrow things down to 150 people. Saturday evening in July. We even got a 10% discount on our venue for booking in July. ::sigh:: I just went to the I <3 Etsy group and saw some great ideas there...::sigh::

So far within budget (if you don't count Honeymoon plans). But not all of the costs are in yet. I don't have a price for alterations or purchases for veil, headpiece, and undergarments. But everything else is pretty much figured out.


The problem is I keep adding DIY's. No matter how small they are, it all adds up so fast!

Well, we seem to be on track...for going over. We booked our venue a few days ago, and that put us on track for running over budget.  But we both absolutely loved the venue!
