    we were hoping to stick with a 15K budget (everything included - flight, resort, all wedding stuff) but since FI and I seem to have want more than what we originally thought it's looking like 18 - 20K. YIKES....

        15k saved just in case, hoping to keep it around 10k.

          About $15K total including airfare for us. 


          We're also budgeting about $1,000 to spend on townhouse rentals for our friends who are on a tighter budget. I'm budgeting a little higher than I originally would have expected for better photography and videography, but I'm saving on things like my dress ($300!!). 


          Our friends who got married in the NJ/NY area all spent over $30K. During the early stages of planning, I got turned down from 3 locations in NJ that I loved for having under 150 guests!!!! In the end, I'm MUCH happier to have our wedding in the Caribbean. :) :)

            Ours is so far at $10,000 for flight + hotel (for 2 weeks) + wedding package. We have $2000 put away for vacay spending money but I dont think that will be enough. We have yet to do some important things like grooms outfit, decorations, and boarding dogs. So probably closer to $15,000 when its all said and done hopefully

              We are hoping to keep it under $15,000, but including our flights and hotel it might be more like $18,000. We'll see, maybe I can work some magic!

                I have budgeted for $20K, but I know I estimated high in a number of areas, which works out because I would like to pay $500 to my MOH as well as my 2 bridesmaids to cover some of their travel expenses.  My fiance & I have two older children each, so a lot of our expenses are travel related.

                  Well, my budget is around 13K and I am doing pretty good in terms of keep it around theere. I guess the cost really depends on how many people are actually attending.

                    We budgeted around $10,000 for our wedding and we are thinking it will be about $8000 once we are done. Our trips are free except for tax as we have a large group coming.

                    Wedding booked for December 12, 2012 at the RIU Ocho Rio....cannot wait.....it will be the best day of our lives
