Budgets

That's very smart!  It made me feel more confident about our budget too.  Thanks JayKay! :)

YAY! Glad to see this stirred up a little discussion.  We have budgeted 10K that includes our travel (flight and hotel) but no honeymoon the rest is all wedding costs.  Our reception/dinner is going to cost about 2k-3k we think with DJ and bar and everything, photographer is just under 3k (could have gotten carried away here) so now that I am breaking it down it doesn't seem like much!

 

We have done a spread sheet for 20/30/40/50/60 guests and comparing costs etc and we seem to be able to make it work.  I expect we will end up closer to 12k though!

Where are you getting married?  I have a 12K max budget too that I would hope could include flight and hotel.  Anyone have a sample budget.  I seriously can't find one on here.

I've done up a budget, and including hotel/airfare, dress, rings, grooms attire, bouquets/boutiniers for 8 attendants, some minimal extra wedding decor, wedding package, legal fees, document translation, OOT bags, invites, STDs, etc. we are at about 12k for 30 guests.

I am hoping to keep mine under 10K including travel and accomodation which I think will be easily achieved for us! Going to keep things simple!

We have a budget of about 10-15k including our travel and air and I'm confident we will come in under budget and still have a great wedding! It can surely be dond

Hello ladies, My FI and I also have a 10k budget not including our wedding bands. I'm also trying to include air/resort stay and everything else in the budget. I'm a little lucky because the best man is a DJ so we won't have to worry about, my brother in law is up and coming graphic designer so I will have him design my monogram he will also take our save the date photo and my cousin is a beautiful crafter and will make my invitations so I sure as hell hope to stay within 10k because we are planning to buy a house all in the same year as the wedding!! Aaah this is going to be some roller coaster!!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
