    We've talked about postponing the honeymoon. I think we're pretty close to budget at this point. If we do go over, I think it will be because I suddenly decided I want something more for the decor!

    So far so good with sticking to our original budget! We are both pretty frugal people and know which parts of our wedding we would like to spend a little more on which helps. Just remember that no matter what it will be an amazing day for each of you, so focus on that! Smiley smile

    Totally under control. A wedding is only one day of your life. In my case, this is a repeat performance. I have seen too many couples drop upwards of $30,000 for one day only to have their marriage break down within 7-10 years. Yes, you want to make it nice and special, but most brides go overboard. Keep it simple and enjoy a long and happy marriage.

    Unless he's more stressed about it and not letting on. He paid for the venue and I'm paying for the extras. The ppl I booked are ppl I paid for. The ppl he booked, he paid for. There was not a big discussion about money.

    Thanks Laura!!! I didn't want to look back years from now and regret not having it the way I truly wanted! And since I have been dreaming of this my whole life I figured I would just go for it! Glad you guys are feeling the same way! Smiley laugh

    Well said Andrea!

    We were originally toying with the idea of eloping, so our budget sort of went out the window pretty quickly. I was trying so hard to keep it small, but my FH realized that I wanted a real wedding and all the little (and big) stuff that goes with it, so we moved our budget up and are just going with it.

    We haven't really given our daughter a budget. We hired a wedding/event coordinator, and she and our daughter are working on her "vision". Dad doesn't want his little girl's day to be nickel and dimed to the point it isn't what she wants but we aren't going to spend $100,000! Are we being old fashioned by not making our daughter pay for the wedding?? What is the average cost of a wedding? Are we spoiling her?

    We are under budget so far. We are really trying to watch the budget. The budget went up slightly due to us just guessing what food would actually cost. But we are good so far and we still have just under a year before the big day.

    We had an initial budget set, but not realizing how much a wedding could cost, that quickly went up. We have over a year to save for it so i'm not too worried.

    No but issues so far. We were getting concerned with quotes from different venues, but found a cheaper alternative!

    My budget has pretty much doubled from when I started so we are just accepting it and we know that this is going to only be one time for us so we might as well do everything we want! LOL

    We constantly talk about budget so we are very accountable to one another if we were to go over.

    We did go a tad over budget but it was to invite a couple more people who are special to us, and to have a dj/mc who can make our wedding specia and unique! We made all the decisions together though Smiley smile

    Hahaha I know all about this! Led the fiancé to all but scrap what we had discussed and now I'm waiting to see when he's ready to sit down and talk things through again! I'm enjoying being engaged for the moment Smiley smile
