Hi Smiley smile Anyone here getting married in NC? Do you have a smaller budget? $10k or less? If so, can you please let me know which venues/vendors you chose or how you're staying within budget. I don't think I'm very good at managing this budget. Thank you!

    Hi Amanda! Where are you looking to get married in NC?

    WeddingWire has some really great resources to help you figure out and manage your wedding budget. Check out the Budget in your Planning Tools, and these helpful articles to get started: How to Plan a Wedding on a Budget and This is How Much a Wedding Actually Costs.

    A wedding for less than 10k is definitely doable - especially if you have a small guest list, or are hosting a wedding during a non-mealtime!! The venue rental and the food & booze will make up the majority of your budget, so I’d try to lock those down first.

    Getting married in NC in two months. Not sure what part you're looking for. I live right on the VA/NC line and am getting married in Kernersville, NC. Right now, I've paid almost everything and I'm only around $6,000 in! I've dropped some of my vendors below. You can click the underlined portions for links!

    I'm getting married at The Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden ($1,950 for a Sunday wedding. I think Saturday was around $3,500)

    Catering by: Giada's Trattoria

    Wedding Coordinator: Jasmine Thompson at As You Wish

    DJ: Cody Lopez at C-JAY Entertainment

    Wine: Chateau Morrisette — this is my FAVORITE local winery. It's in Virginia only about 45 mins from me). The prices are unbeatable and you can order online. Right now, they have 30% off all cases! I got a case of white and a case of red for under $170!

    I just got married on April 17th at the barn at cedar hill. Check out their micro wedding package. You can definitely get married there for 10k and under. They also provide decorations and coordinating for you as part of the rental food.
