Are you already over budget? Or is your spending totally under control?

    What budget? Smiley xd

    True and false. Our budget is more or less a made up number. We are under the 60k we promised ourselves but our parents are helping out here and there so we are probably over when it is all said and done.

    We committed a huge wedding planning no-no and didn't *really* set a budget, but just kind of came up with a number we thought we might spend. We've definitely surpassed that number.

    We haven't set a budget really. My FH and I both like getting the best deal though, so we do look for ways to cut costs.

    We didn’t have a strick budget. It was more of a range, and we’re within the range still!

    True. But I never really had a set budget and didn't spend more than I could afford.

    We never really set a budget. When we started planned, we thought we could stay around $20,000 but it ended up costing around $27,000. It would have been $32,000 had we not had a 35% decline rate Smiley xd

    Over budget in some categories, but overall under budget!

    True but we haven't decided if we're going to hire a photographer and that would put us over with our budget

    Technically no. My dress was over my allotted dress budget, but my parents surprised me by paying for it, so as long as alterations aren’t crazy, even that was totally manageable.

    False. I'm actually about 1.5 K under what we had agreed on

    False. I still show a surplus in our wedding account once everything is paid for. A rapidly shrinking surplus at this point, but we’re still looking to come in slightly under budget.

    Probably true but I won’t know exacts until we get the RSVPs

    A little bit over budget but that's because I've been doing awesome at my job (commission based) and we've splurged on some extras.

    T and F because we came up with $20-25k when all is said and done but we’re looking at $30k+.

    True-ish? We’ve actually stuck to the budget of things we “budgeted” for but we have a lot of things we didn’t include because we have some wiggle room.

    Literally. There was never really a budget for us and was clearly evident in how many guests FH decided to invite. Smiley xd I just try to do all things affordably and pretty much we just have our plan for what's left to pay off. In a general sense of what we thought we'd end up spending (20K) in total wasn't true and we went over that lol. Our friends were crapping their pants thinking of us spending 20K on our wedding but us as a couple still are spending less than that once factoring what our parents gave us.

    We are within budget, I am extremely vigilant about all the details and expenses but I’m sure we will go over budget when the wedding gets closer due to little details and things we didn’t think about!
