How much is your wedding costing you?

Recommended Posts

I found tumbler cups at Sam's Club for a very reasonable price.  Six cost $20 + tax.  They are super cute and each box has 6 different colours.  It was a great option for us, as I wanted to give our guests something nice, but OOT bags seemed like a lot of work and a lot of extra money. 

 

 

If anyone is interested, here's the link:

Sorry to hear! Maybe mil can help? Or even the grandmother? I budgeted 1500 for my mom. I don't want her to stress because she is a worrier especially regarding finances. Bottom line. It's your wedding! I'm not a bridezilla who wants every detail perfect, nor do I think it's a great idea to finance it all. But consider the potential regrets you may have by cost cutting certain things. I always thought other than location, food would be my number one. But now I'm realizing having the moments captured beautifully by a great photographer means the most to me. So I'm looking for ways to sacrifice in other areas. Do you have a date yet? Location?

I just had a mini melt down. My mother in law made a big deal to my fiance about how her mother had to be present at the wedding, which means that its a cost my fiance and I have to bear. I just looked up the flights from Dominican Republic to Jamaica and they are almost $1,000 !!! I almost fainted. We have to budget $1500 for the grandmother :(

Yea it's in Jamaica in June 28th. My mother in law has a lot of her plate right now but if she helps me with the crafty stuff and decorations for the wedding, I will owe her so much! I guess it's a good thing the wedding is still far so maybe my fiance can pick up extra over time hours.

Well, don't stress too much. You have a long time to budget 1500. Plus oil prices will prob come down in the winter. So we'll all enjoy lower gas prices and airfare will likely come down too.

Also, ladies, I saw another thread where ppl are winning stuff for their wedding. Idk how you find out about contests, but I'd guess google and Facebook are good places to start. Maybe Instagram too? I don't use twitter, but I bet that's a good resource too.

Here is a breakout of our budget. We also took a honeymoon in Punta Cana which we paid for with a honeymoon registry and cash gifts from the wedding (about $5,000 total).  This includes absolutely EVERYTHING we bought or paid for from day 1 - we literally saved every receipt and it's all included here. For reference, we had about 60 people and the wedding was not at an all inclusive resort. 

 

All in all, it was money well spent. We had a lovely wedding, much nicer than the money would have got us in Boston where we live. My one budget "regret" is the photographer, which is funny because in the beginning it was the ONE thing I wouldn't budge on and decided to splurge on. We hired the "best of the best" and our pictures were very good, but I think we could have gotten almost as good for a fraction of the cost. There are a LOT of good photographers in the Rivera Maya, so do your research and don't necessarily get sucked in by the big names. 

 

We originally wanted to have an AHR but we just couldn't afford it after how much our DW ended up costing. Almost everyone we really wanted to celebrate with was able to make the trip, so we didn't really see the need to have another party. Plus, I just don't think I could have taken on planning another reception. One was already too much. Maybe it's just me but I thought wedding planning was SO stressful! 

 

Paper goods (Invitations, Calligraphy, etc.) 2,478.44
Dress/Attire/Wedding Bands 6,332.33
Ceremony/Reception (Food and Decor) 22,580.32
Photos/Video 6,200.00
Flowers 3,068.00
Gifts (Welcome Bags, Wedding Party and Family) 3,166.79
Travel (Including Site Visit) 7,616.93
Other 1,079.19
Total 52,522.00

Here's a suggestion for everyone who's planning a wedding under a tight budget. You can hire a student photographer to lower the cost for photos and videos. Just choose one that works as good as a professional. And since a lot of flowers is needed for the weeding, you can buy them in bulk. You can check wholesale flower shops like Danisa Flowers. I hope it helps.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.

    • Hi, I am getting married after one year. I have tons of planning to do and very little time. Planning a wedding can be difficult especially when there is less time. I have to do a lot of things on my own and at the same time work overtime to earn more money. Recently when I was hanging out with my close friends, I noticed that my friend who had crooked teeth like mine had perfect teeth now. I was surprised to see that I asked her that what did you do for a sudden change. She said that she tried Invisalign braces and had a change with her smile within a short time. I told about this to my bf and he also told me to give a try for it. I took an appointment with a dentist in Aurora. I don't know whether there will be a  change within a short time. What can you say on this? Am I taken a good decision?
    • Hi, I'm in a relationship with a guy who is in my college. He is planning to migrate from our area and he wants to marry me before he leaves. He is well planned for our marriage. He accompanied me for all the wedding shopping and was supporting me a lot. But there was an unexpected accident and I fell down hitting the floor. I was taken to the nearby clinic for getting the emergency dental care  from a clinic in Toronto. My front canine was lost after the accident and I think I need to get dentures before my wedding. Or according to your opinion what can be done other than dentures?
    • Hi all!  My daughter who's portrait, lifestyle, fashion, family photographer for over 5 years now is willing to expand into the wedding photography and videography. She's working really hard and I want to support her as much as I can. Does anyone could use a 2nd shooter in their wedding? She would deliver all digital photos with no cost. Just so she could start building up her portfolio. Who could say no to free high quality photos and video?? I can share her current porfolio if anyone is interested.
