    Please include the cost of your wedding dress and your fianc©'s suit (or dresses and suits if you're a same-sex couple!), any accessories, and bridal party dresses and suits only if you're paying for them. 

     

     

    It seems there was a lot of confusion over at the "How much do you think your destination wedding will cost?" thread about what costs to include or not include, and someone suggested breaking down costs by categories, which I think is a great idea.  Site administrators, I hope I'm not stepping on any toes!  Don't mean to, just seemed like people were confused.

      Oops! I voted before I read the post, We are buying the bm dresses, gm attire and accessories so this will probably be up to $2000 total. Right now, only my dress is purchased and it's $945+ alterations

          I was really impressed that we were able to stay under budget for all the attire!
