How much was your wedding and when did you get married?

I want a church wedding. My husband and I got married in Aug 08, but we did the whole court thing. But now we would like to start saving up so that we can have a church wedding. We do have a 6 month old so we don't want to go ALL out either. So I'm just trying to get a ballpark idea of how much everyone spent. Thanks.

  • I am not sure of how much everything cost, but we had a reception in a park it was pretty nice cause the kids could play on the play ground. I bought my wedding dress and hubbys bought a tux probably a total of both was about 300.00 then we had unity candles we used cause someone gave them to us. We had food at the reception that caused maybe 200.00 or 300.00 we spend maybe 3,000.00 I am not sure though cause a lot of people helped out a lot on stuff. But we had our wedding October 12, 2003 achually everyone kept telling us not to have the reception outside cause it would be to cold well we had an indian summer that year lol so it wasn't bad at alllll. We got the church for free though and the pastor lol so we also got marriage consuling for free cause we were a member at a church. A lot of pastor's make you go through marriage conuling before they will marry you

  • I got married July 2007. We got married in my mom's backyard. The wedding and reception, dresses, food, decor, etc., altogether run us about $2000.

  • I spent 5,500 and my mother spent 5,000.
    My money went to the dress which was most of that, and my hubbys tux and the place where we got married and the justic of the peace.
    My mothers money went to flowers and decoration (most of which she made herself and were beautiful) DJ food wine and the reception hall cake and a few other things here and there.
    my wedding was beautiful and eligent, and all done on a budget!

  • My dress was only $350, but I got it from some woman that was going to get married and then it all fell through... then she wanted a whole different style dress when she finally ended up getting married to another guy! She was sailing it to me for the cost of her rental for another dress! So I got a KILLER deal!!! My dress originally would have cost me $1500 buck! I would just shop around! I got married August 02, 2008!
    Congrats and good luck!!! The more you shop around the better deals you will get! Have you considered getting a rental?

  • Our wedding was a little more than I expected... total with everyone paying what they did... (my mother, my MIL, etc...) Our wedding was about $3000 I think the food and the reception place was the most expensive parts though!!! Good luck!
