Budgets

Wedding Budget:

Me - $1000
Me extra - $350
Jedi - $1000
My Mom- $1000
My Dad - $3000
Jedi's Parents- $1500

= $7,850

Now, yes, my original budget was $5,000... Thank God my dad kicked in a bit more!

This seems like a crazy big budget until you start dividing it up...

But, in reference to the post below let me just say that we end up about $100 over budget if we go with the "good" photographer and about $800 over if we go with the really good photographer.

Again, me with the cheapo wedding, trying to give advice, but: that's not THAT huge a budget. You're working, you're not in debt, you own your home. You're responsible with money overall. Since you're having a "real," moderate-sized wedding, that's not ridiculously expensive.

Not that 8K isn't a lot of money, but...you know, people break the bank on weddings, and I don't think you guys are doing that.

Yeah... I just keep thinking-- I could get a house with CLOSETS for that kind of downpayment! But, I also know that it's not like my parents or his would have just handed that money over for that purpose, so I'll just be grateful that they want us to have a nice event.
