What is your budget?

If you don't mind sharing your budget please post it here.  =)  


We're looking at (hopefully) 12k or a little under, though I'm willing to go to 15k max.  


I have tons of DIYs to do and I'm really looking forward to it.


Thankfully, the best part of planning this far in advance is that once you make your deposits (venues, caterers, etc.) you can make monthly payments and be paid off without breaking yourself.

I'm actually using these 3 years to save up $5000. A lot of it I'm buying now, and it's things that are easily reusable. Aside from that it's a lot of DIY.

I'm aiming to max out at $5-6K. Hopefully I'll go under :)  I'm taking advantage of every off season sale I can find and DIY projects galore. My Mom has a spare closet and it's getting SO packed!!! Well, we've been engaged for 14 years. So that's a lot of stuff!

We are trying to stay under 20K but...We are renting a lodge in the mountains for 2 nights and hopefully it will fit most of our guests since alot are from OOT. We are renting out the reception place as well and that starts at 5K but it goes towards your food and drink. FI college buddies are all coming and boy beer goes fast with them! Like "thrila" we are also using these 2 years to save save save. I plan on DIY for alot of things.

We want to keep it under $10000, but our venue with food (and most decorations: china, linens, candelabras, pews, etc. - just doesn't include flowers) will take $10000. So we are hoping to keep it under $20000.

I don't want to spend more than $5,000 between my FI and myself. That doesn't include the help our families have offered. My FMIL gave us $3,000, my father is giving us $2,000ish, and my aunt gave us $500. So far, that puts our budget (all inclusive) at $9,500 :] But I hope to be under!

Seriously?! How are some of your budgets so "small". I don't mean it's not a lot of money, but our venue is going to cost us almost double some of the budgets....

SRRL18 I'm trying to keep my guest list around 80 people. Less guest means less invitations, tables to decorate, less mouths to feed etc.

Allbyfaith, our budgets are the same. Half of the budget goes to the recpetion alone. It's insane.

$12k is mine, but I'm REALLY trying to stay under the best that I can! So far so good :)


SRRL- Some people can't afford more than $3 or 4 grand for a wedding. The only reason that I'm able to is because I'm doing lots of payments for vendors. There are plenty of ways to keep a wedding inexpensive, but still beautiful. And you can find plenty of venues that don't cost an arm and a leg! Mine is only $700 for the day and it's absolutely breathtaking. You just have to look around.

We don't have an official budget just yet. It's definitely something we need to figure out soon so we can start booking and what not!

We're hoping we can also stay under 10K..we are both starting new jobs soon and have 2 kids...life keeps putting saving back and back and...our date is 9-28-13 so hopefully we can start saving soon...our venue alone will be around 6K..ceremony, reception, food, alcohol and lodging for most of our guests..
