Going over the budget.....
When I began this planning process we decided on a $15,000 budget then after seeing the things we wanted to include and the type of wedding we wanted we decided that $15-20K including our honeymoon was decent.
It seems I go over this repeatedly and constantly. We have recently decided we want to take a 14 day honeymoon. We want to visit Hawaii (where my FI is from), Cancun and Thailand.
Going over the budget I have found things I could live without, things I could do differently to make cheaper. I have decided to use Dressilyme.com for my wedding gown. I've researched them and I can get the dress of my dreams for $300 as opposed to $1000. The things I've decided I can't live without is a wedding coordinator and a photographer for pictures and videos. These two items alone come to a total of.....$4200 OUCH! At the end of the night we are having a pyrotechnic company do fireworks at $750 for the display we want but I can also take this down to $500 but I don't want to cut it out completely.
Am I the only one who obsesses over the budget and redoes it over and over again??? Like my numbers will be any different if I do it once or 100 times.
