I was thinking $8K tops but most of your budgets blow this out of the water
Looks like I got some figuring out to do
One Question though, do you couples have the cash for this stuff? Or is this going mostly on credit? My FI and I have some debt, but certainly don't have any savings to speak of that we can pay for this thing cash. It's stressing me a bit

Thanks for the advice though. I'm going to sit down Sunday and actually work some figures out.

Dress and accessories - $300
Tux/Suit - $200
Videography - $0 (recruiting a friend in film school)
Music - $200 (just for ceremony; hopefully bringing ipod and own speakers for reception)
Invitations - $80 (doing them ourselves)
Save the Date cards - $50 (ourselves)
Rings - ?
Photographer - $0 (recruiting a friend in art school)
Ceremony + Reception - $2,000 (hopefully free basic package + add-ons for additional guests)
Total so far: $2,830
I'm considering my fiance and my travel expenses as separate from the cost of the wedding (because the wedding budget looks much more tolerable that way) We're hoping the cost of our flights plus the hotel room will total less than $3,000.

For those of you who still have the password to the DIY page of our website still, I just uploaded an excel document that will budget/track/calculate all the purchases for wedding for anyone to download who wants it.
For example: the main sheet of the document is a categorized overview (like under attire it will show expenses for the bride and groom). But if you click on the "Attire" sheet of the document, you can enter the description of the item (and location where you purchased it), the quantity and unit price. It will then keep track of all your attire expenses and categorize them on the main overview sheet.
