I went over by maybe 4-5k but it was only because we had to change venues. What about you?
I never really set a budget, but I know if I had, I would have been over. WAY over!
So far I'm about 1k over. My parents and I have an agreement every dollar i'm over my budget I have to pay the difference.
We'll be over becaue I invited more than planned!! UGH!!
I'm about $11k over what we originally budget. Eek! That's also because I bought a second dress (the first still hasn't sold) and added all kinds of extras like an acoustic guitarist, went all out with games and a mechanical bull for the rehearsal BBQ, basically I'm crazy.
Over budget but it was well worth it. I had the same issue as you. Changing venues that fell through.
Well under budget! But im very good about things like that! I made adjustments for everything that I could to lower our budget which meant not having the origional venue that I wanted but it all worked out!
We were probably 1-2k over budget.
I stayed on budget woot woot!! :)
I think we're over the overall budget (including honeymoon). If I take out the HM then we're under.
Pickaroe 11k over budget??? WOW!!!! We didn't set a budget but I have a round number in mind and I better stick to it or only exceed it by very little.
We went over about 5k not sure could've been more we haven't really totaled up the expense yet
I came in under budget by nearly $900!!!
We came in right where our original budget was set, we were hoping to save a little money by having a DW, but I couldn't help myself!! Thankfully, that number includes airline tickets, our condo in key west, key west fun money and our week long cruise. DH and I were both on board with our budget!
So far we are right on and hoping to stay that way till the end!
We were 2 to 3k over budget but worth it. There's nothing I regret or would change!
We originally budgeted $24k for 65 people and it looks like we're ending up at $35k for about 95 people. Our venue alone was $10k (no chairs/tables/etc) so that ate up a big chunk.
That does include a lot of extra stuff though. We didn't really cut anything we thought we wanted and stupid me but I hastily bought a dress and bought a second dress because Nick saw a picture of the first one (stock photo, I wasn't in it) and said it was ugly :(
we were a couple hundred under. but, we gave ourself a $2k range for our budget, so we were a couple hundred under our max budget, and a thousand dollars over our preferred budget, if that makes any sence :)
everyone probably would like to be under but i don't think its very often the case.Over budget but it was well worth it.
