Hello, everyone! Congrats to you all on your upcoming nuptials!
I'm curious what everyone's budget is and where do you plan to splurge? My budget is $16,500 and I plan to devote the most money to food and alcohol (and my dress, but that goes without saying). Our wedding venue is "paid for" since a friend of ours has offered to host our wedding and reception in his backyard, so that frees up so much of our budget and we can have a little more fun with this than we would be able to if we had to pay for a venue. Both sets of parents are contributing - my fiance's parents are contributing $4,000 and my mother (single parent) will contribute $500 to $1,000. My fiance and I will provide the rest.
I'm soooo excited! Can't wait for the big day!
