Spending up a storm! HELP!

Recommended Posts

We originally planned a destination wedding thinking it would bring down the cost. We all know how that turns out!

 

We would be fine if we weren't paying for both sets of our parents. We originally wanted to give each set $1,000 to put towards their tickets/accomodations. Once FI's parents say they couldn't afford it we said "fine, well pay for both parents" bad decision. We're looking at over $2,600 for each set. If both parents decided to suck it up and help it would bring our cost down a lot.

 

I mean, I've lowered my photographer and photography package to bring the price down $1k.

 

It seems like nomatter what we save, or cut down on prices just keep rising. We're less than 16 months out now, and I'm already freaking out.

 

Anyone going through the same thing?

I felt the exact same way!

 

We just recently sent out our invites, and were told that 80% will most likely go to a DW because its an excuse to get away.. now that we are nearing the end of our rsvp timeframe we have around 30% attending!! We were planning on spending $4500 alone on the reception dinner and now it looks like its going to be under $2000!! Sooooooo, hopefully your numbers will even out in the end, too!

I'm hoping we only get 20 guests or so. Anymore we'll be paying $45 a piece for. Which will bring our budget up even more. I'm hoping to send out only 30 invites because my mother is insisting not many people will come bc of the cost.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
