Wedding.

5 years ago

I will be updating this as I get more and more things for the wedding. I will put every cent spent for each different area for a wedding. I will be doing a diy wedding and the budget is $3,000 and at most $4,000. We will be getting married June 22, 2013.

Venue
It all takes searching. You can always go to a park or at a friend's house, but we didn't want the chance of rain coming & having no other choices and we didn't have any friends that had a big enough backyard for a wedding.

We searched google for many different places and found a Golf Course that rents a room out for $550. If they don't have anyone booked the day before, you can set up the day before your wedding.

Venue Cost: $550.

Cake

Catering
We found out venue through a catering service. Jonthan Byrd's. We are going to find out if our venue requires catering. If not, we are just going to have a snack/finger foods then our cake. Our wedding will be late enough in the day that people would have already eaten dinner.

Catering through Jonathan Byrd's : $1,900 (including drinks, no alcohol. Includes 18% tip)

 

DJ
Once again, some google searching.

DJ: $350 (including deposit)

Dress/Shoes

Tuxes
Men's warehouse has a special. Rent 5 tuxes, get one free. The groomsmen will pay for their own and my fiance gets his free.

Tux: free

Bridesmaids Dresses/Shoes
I have asked my bridesmaids to purchase their own things.

dresses/shoe: free
