How much did you spend?

How much did you spend on your wedding? Was it nice or just ok? What did you do for everything?

I'm trying to get ideas on how much I want to budget out for a wedding and just what I want to do exactly.

  • We got married at the courthouse. I don't think it matters how much you spend, just what you spend it on. Do what you feel is important, and what you like. Maybe plan out what you WANT, then go back and plan it to what you can afford, and take out what you can do without to fit it into your budget.

  • Ours was back in 90. We spent about $3500. I bought a cheap dress because you only wear it once $204. My sisters all spent thousands on a dress, had it preserved by the dry cleaners in a nice box, and when they opened them years later they where ruined. I think it was an adverage wedding. Meal, DJ, my sister made dresses, and a friend did the flowers. We went with fake flowers. They carried them in baskets and all my sisters still use theirs as a decoration in their home. Truely it's one day. You want it to be nice but why go overboard.

  • We spent $20,000 on our wedding.
    It was nice but if I could do it different I would have had the reception outside since everyone was outside most of the time anyways.

  • I had a beautiful English country wedding.  It cost around 1000 to 1500 pounds, but that was almost 22 years ago, so it's hard to remember and prices have surely risen since then.
