what should our wedding budget be?
We recently got engaged...our wedding date isn't until 5-10-15 so there is plenty of time for planning. This is the 2nd marriage for both of us.Neither of our 1st weddings were anything special, so this one we want to actually celebrate and make everything unique and wonderful.
Between us we have 5 kids, only 4 of them live with us, the oldest is 5. We will be paying for absolutely everything ourselves. The guest list hasn't been thought about much yet but I know that it's prob under 100 people. We'll both be in our 30s by the time the wedding date comes. My body is difficult so I know the dress needs to either be special made just for me or have a ton of alterations. (I'm 4'9, 34DDD, hourglass figure so that's alterations on length and then whole dress so it fits bust and rest of me.)
I have no idea what we should try to budget for the wedding or what we can do to save money on it.any ideas or tips are greatly appreciated!
