        Well I haven't seen this thread in a while but I wanted to subscribe so I could post what our expenses ended up being after all said and done. We paid for it ourselves and i understand the stress that seeing some other people's budgets can put on you.

        However I will say that the best thing we did was prioritize what is most important to each of you (choose one thing) and then make those two things be the higher ticket items. For example flowers and centerpieces for me were not because I loved the natural beauty of the beach so I just used what came with the package and added a DIY... saved a lot of money but allowed for our photog/dj/band etc...

        I will post my stuff later.

                    Here's mine so far rounded up... Mine are listed in CAD funds

                    Flights (first class) - 6400 (paid)
                    Wedding Resorts (6 nights @ Iberostar Grand Parasio in Mexico) - 2700 (paid)
                    Honeymoon Resort (5 nights @ Jade Mountain in St Lucia) - 8200 (50% paid)
                    Invites (STD's and MIB formals including postage) - 600 (paid)
                    Hotel fees (wedding, outside photog fee, room rentals, etc.) - 3000 (estimate)
                    Attire - 850 (estimate - wedding dress paid, need groom's attire)
                    Photog (Wedding and Trash the Dress with Claudia R.) - 2800
                    Rings (e-ring and wedding) - 15000 (estimate - e-ring already paid, but wedding rings need to be bought)
                    Miscell (OOT bags, gifts, etc) - 1000 (estimate)
                    MOH (flight, dress) - 700 (estimate - flight paid, dress needs to be bought)

                    Excluding the e-ring, I figured it was going to be around 18000... but it's now around 26750... It's going to be scary to know the final amount in the coming months.

                      Shoes: $1000
                      Travel for Us/FH's kids/Family:$14, 200
                      Engagement Photos/STDs/Invitations/Stationary: $1300

                      Wedding Package: $1600
                      Wedding Extras (extra guests=private restaurant;extra cake/champagne, etc.)=$1275
                      DJ= 570
                      Flowers (BMs, boutonieres, corsages)= 320

                      I am just a tad under budget, but I am sure that I can find something to blow that money on...
