    80 guests. We agreed we'd spend the majority of our money here. We want our guests to have an amazing time, so we'll sacrifice money on things guests don't care about like decorations, favours, etc. and spend our money on amazing/tons of food and top shelf open bar.

    That's still quite good, Kate. You must be good at finding the bargains!

    Wow! That's a huge chunk of money. How many guests are coming? Which price totally caught you off guard?

    Oh my, Jen! That's a down payment on a house or condo! How many people have you invited?

    We didn't want to go over $5000 and we're at about $4000 now but everything is pretty much done at this point. We have only invited 30 guests and are paying for it ourselves.

    Right now we're sitting at $2550 but most likely going to be around$3000 cause I know we haven't done everything yet. Our goal was to keep it as close to 3K but nothing over 5K. So far so good. Helping friends and my church being the venue has helped a ton!

    Our budget was around $15K and we are currently sitting around $11K with pretty much everything done. We were lucky and found a venue that was pretty much all inclusive, with DJ, Flowers and wedding cake included, so it really help cut a lot of costs. We are also doing a Friday in the off season which was a big help as well.

    We originally wanted a 5000$ budget but for our dream venue we had to up the budget. So right now it's between 8-10k. Thankfully we have had a TON of help from family which we were honestly not expecting so that was a huge help in keeping our budget within reason.

    Way too much! lol
    We're doing pretty good at keeping costs down though and we've been good at saving, so we shouldn't be in debt once all is said and done.

    Our scary number was 20k. That quickly changed when we realized that we were forgetting to add in a lot of the little details. Our scary number is now 30k. We are just over 20 right now but decided to bump it up just in case. And this is even with only paying for the bar during the cocktail hour. Could you imagine if we ended up paying for the bar the whole night?! eeekkk

    Well we were hoping to keep it at $30,000, but we've only booked the venue and photographer so far and are already at $25,000 so I don't think thats happening Smiley ups

    Our budget started out being 15 thousand but we realized we'd probably have to bump it up a little bit (we are having a medium sized wedding of 130 people, and we found out after booking our venue that they have a minimum spend on weekends). It's currently sitting at $17,500 and we are hoping to not going over that!

    We also found everything is more expensive than we thought! We had to decide what we wanted to splurge on (we splurged on our photographer) and what we can do without (the big thing is no DJ) to make it happen. Crazy how even the little things add up so much!

    I think it was about 10 thousand but some categories in this pic are way off for us. My photographer is 2500. And the rings are like 4x 200 dollars. We split the costs so I only know what I spent. Which is pretty much more than anything in the categories lol
    Dress: $996 Alterations: $300 DJ: $1086Photographer: $2500Flowers: $650 Officiant: $475Invites: $150 Beauty: $250
    So I've spent $6157. Mike spent about $6500 on the venue which includes food and reception and overnight stay. Our wedding is more expensive than I thought. That's not even including my shoes and accessories.
