We came up with about $8,000. I was hoping for $5-6K, but that wasn't realistic for us. As it is, right now we're approaching $11,000.
This is for a wedding at a semi-inclusive resort (we'll have to pay for drinks and all lunches), several trips for the two of us, our airfare and accomodation, all other wedding related costs (dress, suits, OOT bags, etc.).
We have gone over budget on a few things, namely:
- my second dress ... but I'm SO happy I bought a different one
- we just bought a camcorder. We'd budgeted $800 total, but we bought a better, High Definition one today and with a 4-yr warranty, ect. the total was about $1,000.
We have so much left to buy. It's going to be a brutal month!

That said, i am just beggining my planning and was thinking $5,000 would be a good budget. Wer'e getting married winter 2010 in Costa Rica
that would include..
One week at a private villa which also doubles as ceremony and reception site as well as accommodations for 10 friends.
Our friends will pay their share, so we'd pay $1,000 for the place.
And the rest will go to spending money and food for about 20 people the night of the wedding.
I am a fashion designer, so I will be making my own dress, as well as invitations, STD, etc.
I was hoping to have a close friend do the photography as a wedding gift.
Neither of our parents are very well off and approaching retirement age, so we won't be accepting any help from them, just that they pay their own way.
Geez..I hope we can pull this off!!
