Yes certainly overwhelmed and always trying to weigh what is most important to us. I think we have been pretty realistic with budget etc but certain things have taken me by surprise. Agree with the personalization advice! So true.
I should tattoo 'that's NOT in the budget' on my forehead lol....
I agree, some things totally took me by surprise!!! I had to adjust my budget a few times. Big one was wedding bands! I think I budgeted $500 total for both of ours, and we ended up paying $1000. But I saved on my dress. LIke was said in another thread, it's a give and take -- some come in under budget and some go way over. Photography was another one - which is kind of silly because I know what it costs in Canada. I think because it was never that high on my list. I was going to use my fiance's cousin but she is not coming (which in hindsite is a blessing..drama!) hehe. So when I had to add that cost on, I had to take a big gulp.
