I just had to laugh because at the beginning of wedding planning, we thought we would spend $4,000-5,000 MAX with 70 guests... Now we are at 120 guests and $11,700 ($14,000 if honeymoon included) spent so far. It is funny how as you wedding plan things get more expensive and new ideas form. 13 DAYS until I do and I can't wait for it to be over with so we can go on our Honeymoon!

    Yes I feel that’s very common. When we first started planning my fiancé swore we wouldn’t spend more than 10k and we are now at 17k for 120 guest without your honeymoon. We plan to save for a year for our honeymoon due to the extra 7k we are spending. Where are you going on your honeymoon!? Best wishes Smiley smile

    My FH and I were only planning on doing a small backyard wedding for family only. That changed quick. Went and got he venue and had 80 guests. Now we’re up to 120 and our budget is at 8k lol. We only wanted to spend 4K. And we’re not done yet.

    I really had no idea how much everything cost in the beginning pre planning. We are about 15k over what I initially thought it would cost 🤣

    I vividly remember telling my father that “our wedding can’t be more than 15K” so that’s all I asked for. . 35K later....yeah....

    I was so naive.

    Same here. We started out wanting 60 guests for 10k. Now were at freaking 100 guests and looking at about 13k! WTH! I’m really actually hoping for some declines. I’m ready to be done come on August.

    When FH and I first discussed the wedding, and we were looking at venues that were $15-20k (including food and open bar), he thought the whole thing would never be more than $25k. Hahahahaha I knew he was crazy but we’re at $40.

    Budget was around 26k... getting close to 31k... sometimes I feel it is too much, other times I tell myself some people spend 50k+ in the area... So yeah... I'm going with that to feel a bit better about it!

    We went over board on the honeymoon. It is at 12k now. Pretty much the same as what we are putting into the wedding but we are like hey we can afford it and the honeymoon is almost 3 weeks.
