    Our original budget was $7000 without honeymoon but we didn't want to spend that much so we cut it down to $5000

    I think we will be under budget because I will be doing some DIY projects and we are also getting married in a low season.

    We had to raise our budget. When we originally made our budget, we weren't realistic with how much vendors really cost. I think we still went a little overbudget but not too bad! Haha definitely in the last few weeks before the wedding, we had an "whatever, eff it just buy it" attitude.

    We started at $5000 before planning... Once we did up our guest list we realized that it might not be enough so we upped it to $8500, so far we are under budget but have only spent money on my wedding band and stamps... The only thing we may go over budget on is my dress but there is room else where for cuts.

    We are over our budget , but we decided if we were going to pay for our own day and not get help that their were a few items we didnt want to compromise on .. so we just went for them and I am happy we did ... we are not crazy over budget either which is nice and we will still be having a stag and doe which we hope will raise some money to help !

    I'm not completely sure where we will come out at. I had 30,000 as our original budget and so far the venue and the photographer are over what I was planning but those were my 2 big spendy areas. My dress is under so far but I haven't done the alterations so we will see. It is also lookin like the DJ and the officiant will be under as well. My mom has said they want to help with the costs so that gives a bit of breathing room and I will see what else I can get under to bring us down a bit more Smiley smileSmiley atonished

    Ours is definitely below original, we started at $5,000 and lowered it to $2,000. Barely over $1,700 estimated!!

    We are over our budget but we ended up getting a gift of money from my dad that was unexpected and I got some birthday money this year as well.

    Over! We started at a low budget, and added extra (thanks to my parents) to have the wedding we really wanted.

    Our budget is still quite small, and we are being creative with spending to keep things in line!
