I was wondering if you ladies, and I know this is asking ALOT, could repost your vendors and add what your total budget was BEFORE everything, if you came in UNDER or OVER budget, how much, etc. I know it's asking ALOT, but my FI and myself have prices that are all over the place with vendors, venues, caterers, photography, etc. I think FI's mom is going to be paying for everything when it comes to the "big day", but we are thinking that the "unspoken of budget" is somewhere in the $10K-$12K range. Mind you, we are only planning on having 40-50 guests. I'm not trying to get "personal", but any and all help is greatly appreciated! Our 3 venues on the top of our list we are visiting in September are The Sanderling Inn, Jeannette's Pier, and The Whalehead Club. 3 unique and different places exclusive of each other.
Also, we are up in the air about inviting kids. My close friends each have kids. Thoughts on having kids at ceremony/reception or not??? Did all of you?
