Here's my tentative budget...I'm realizing that I haven't looked at it in a while & I had some weird logic going on about what should be part of the budget...but I'm putting it all out here now :)

 

-Travel & Accomodations (pre-wedding/night of) $2340

-Welcome dinner $2000

-Flowers $650

-Photographer $1100

-Coordinator & misc decor $1330

-Wedding reception food/beverages $5587.50

Total anticipated = $13,371.56

 

OUCH...and that doesn't include the dress. With the dress $15,700.

when all is said & done, after our travel expenses, e-ring, wedding band, etc. we're at $40-$45k. Our official budget is at home on the laptop so I can add in itemized expenses later.

 

crap, that's a lot of money.

Decor/music/coordinator,etc: $7,500 (last total my coordinator sent)

Food: $2100

Drinks: $4000

Bonfire: $500

Total: $14,100 (and I'm sure it will be more once we're done)

 

Travel: Add another $5500 - Flights + wedding hotel + honeymoon hotel... we did splurge on first class flights :-)

I don't even want to add the rings, OOT bags, wedding gown, etc...

 

At least it would be much more if we had a wedding in the U.S., so I have to remind myself of that!

 

I hate to say it... my mother was right. I told her 10k the most, and she laughed wacko.gif

Tammy, I hear ya! I have the same feeling... Oh, I forgot his attire, and we payed for half of all the groomsmen attire since my FI insisted on having matching EVERYTHING.

That is exactly how I feel also thinking about the budget: lalala.gif

I don't want to talk about it anymore! ha ha

Heck yeah, I think this is going to be so much more enjoyable for us. A reception at home would have been a buffet of carrot sticks and water because the wedding list from both sides was HUGE. And it still would have been more expensive!

we spent more at our AHR than cabo and it really sucked. i didn't get the venue i wanted because that would have been an extra $25k (that is more than my whole wedding in cabo!).

 

also, it just wasnt as fun. it was kind of stuffy.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
