OMG I feel like money is flying out of my bank account faster than its coming in. So far I have paid:
the $500 "good faith" deposit for the rooms, which was put back into my account once the ninth room booked (still have one room to get rid of!)
a $1,000 deposit for the room block which will be credited towards our stay once the final room is booked.
$500 to Paradisus to hold the wedding date
$129- Save the Dates
$170 cake topper
$1,500 block of seats with the airline
$500 deposit for DJ Mannia
$700 for my veil and headpiece (which there is a balance on)
$800 retainer for photographer (balance still...)
$300- Reception name cards, unity sand holder and sand, candle holders and trays for centerpieces
$300- pre cana classes so we can get married in the church
$1500- non-refundable deposit for DJ I paid when we THOUGHT we were getting married in NY
And there's stil so much to buy and do!!!!!!!!!! How do people stay within a "reasonable" budget...and reasonable to me is $15,000, because I am about halfway there already.
