Well it looks like my budget is going to be around 15k...
This is the break down of our expenses so far... Some things are estimates (so hopefully we can lower our budget in that way )
Hotel Stay for 7 nights for both in a Jr Suite Ocean Front is $2506
Our flights are about (for both) $ 1000
Photographer/ Videographer will be $4000
My fiance's grandmother's expenses $1300
Minister Fee $340
Dinner (estimate 50 guests) $500
Per person fee (estimate 50 guests) $525
Disco after dinner $650
Invitations/STD/Thank You cards etc. $208
Marriage licence $50
Passport (new last name) $140
Estimate for both our wedding bands $2000
Total so far is about = 13,200
That is without including my wedding dress which will be my parent'd wedding gift, my fiance's outfit (no idea what that will cost), the cake topper, the hair nails and make up, and any small details or decorations I want to use.
I love photographs and it is extremely important for me to have beautiful pictures and a great video to relive this moment for the rest of our lives which is why we are going to splurge in that aspect of our wedding.
I hope that whatever else we decide to do does not go over $2,000. If it does then I am going to have to look into cutting down some expenses...
