Economy sticking a cake fork in bridezilla?

Recommended Posts

I hope none of you think I was offended by any of your comments. I definitely wasn't. I just didn't want any of YOU to be offended (or think I'm crazy) that I spent as much as I did. Seriously, Cabo is sooo freaking expensive and when we knew we were having a small group, we figured we could take our NY budget and go a little more over the top for the few guests that we had.

 

No one needs to explain themselves here. No one is offended, ok?

Actually to be honest most of the weddings I have been to here are over $100,000 too but I didn't want to sound like a snob. LOL. So I used the lowest number of all the weddings I went too. Actually the $60,000 wedding I went to had a DJ but all the other ones had bands. I think NYers just go a little crazy. Its very "keeping up with the Jones' here".

I think NYers are crazy- period. LOL no just kidding. I had a fabulous time when I visited NY. Granted, I don't think I could afford to live there, but I sure would like to try for a bit.

smile120.gif LOl. Jen don't worry no one is offended. I was just making sure my comments came out the right way.

Cabo is very expensive. I remember reading that at some hotels a drink is like $15! That's insane if your trying to get drunk!

LOL glad we're all good & nobody is offended!!

 

I think it depends on lifestyle too & location ALOT. Where I live, $100,000 could buy me an ENTIRE house, not only help pay a mortgage!!!!!!

When I was growing up in New Mexico, all the weddings I went to were at some rental hall like the Elks club or something like that and using paper products, and a cash bar, but that never stopped anyone from having loads of fun. The weddings I went to were always full of music, cheesy and all, and dancing and everyone having a great time.

 

I like to watch platinum wedding, and FI doesn't quite get why. I think it's fun to see how people can spend so lavishly, but i'm not jealous or wishing. I'm quite happy with what we have been able to put together for a moderate amount of money.

This wedding we're having is so fancy for me, but it's nice to have a smaller crowd and be able to have two dinners, two open bars at a beautiful hotel. I"m really looking forward to it. I think we're spending around 18,000 to 20,000, but that' s for everything. Accommodations for us and our wedding party, welcome dinner, ceremony, favors, two week stay, etc. The way it was going, I thought it was going to end up being a lot more, so I'm pretty happy with the money situation, although our original budget was 15,000!worried2.gif

After this is over, time to save up for a honeymoon with the 2 of us!

I live in NY, there's NO WAY I'd be able to get married here for $28,000!!!! We were looking at at least 35-40 and that was bare bones. I guess other states help bring that average down...I wonder how much the NYC area average is...

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
