Wedding Budget

I got married in October 2006 and wedding prices have gone up since then but I thought it would be helpful for those newly engaged brides to see how much we spent on our wedding.  We paid for the entire wedding ourselves.

Venue - $3,000
Photography - $1,000
Flowers - $2,322
Engagement Ring - $3,460
Groom's Ring - $300
Dress - $1,758
Alterations - $110
Bridesmaid Dresses - $1,188
Caterer - $3,500
Cake - $150
Invites - $750
Ceremony Violinist - $200
Jazz Band - $900
Judge - $250
Guest Book - $80
Honeymoon - NONE
Misc - $1,000

TOTAL: $19,968

We didn't go on a honeymoon.  We tipped the florist, band, violinist, caterer, and photographer on top of the listed prices.  We were happy with all our vendors but we wished we paid more for a photographer and the cake.  The cake was very small and I'm sure we would have got a larger cake if we spent $200 more on it.  Also, our photography package didn't include a wedding album and I wish we spent twice as much on the photography considering it's all you have left over after the wedding.
