I thought we could easily do a 100 person wedding for $20,000. WOW was I wrong! Our budget is completely disintegrating with every quote that comes in. I want to cry every time I open a catering quote that's $15k (since when are servers billed at $47/h?)
We've already cut soo many things that I really don't want to just to save some money: cocktail hour, desserts, wedding cake, favors. Stationary all switched to email. Photos the bare minimum hours. I'm borrowing a veil and shoes, my FH is reusing a suit he wore as a groomsman last year. Our officiant is a family friend so no expense there.
I don't know what else to do but either accept the fact that our wedding will be $35k (we could do sooo many things with that money ) or plug in an iphone and order a bunch of pizzas?
Any other suggestions?! Any recommendations on caterers that AREN'T 75% of our entire budget?
