OK, so we are on the conservative side of things...and have about 15-20 guests tops. But we plan to take our $$$ for activities while there and just relax and have a great time. No private events...no fireworks...no dj - Why? They have a disco at the hotel we will all meet at one evening! We are so excited and happy that this didn't take too much money from our house fund! Good luck all!!!

I decided our honeymoon will not be included in our budget, nor will our rings. Is it bad that we're still looking at $20k?
You know what, at the end of the day, I live in NY and if I were to have a NY traditional wedding we'd be looking @ at least $50k++. Hey, I have to make myself feel better somehow.....

We do have most of the stuff already, such as rings, flowers, guest gifts...I'm thinking of getting a new dress, that is DW friendly, the one I have right now is going to be very hot.
I would really love to stay below 5K for the actual wedding and reception at the Dominican and really do hope it will be possible.

Although I must say my budget has been pretty good. With everything included, rings, dress, wedding attire, reception after the wedding, at-home reception, I'm looking at
