    Mine's just ballooned to £3000. I wanted it to be less but just can't see how to do it without not inviting most people for the food!

    we had an expensive venue before so was £20,000, which is crazy, but got a better venue for less money so we're probably going to spend about £12,000 now xx

    Ours was roughly £20,000 but its now went over and is now £22,000 - we have been saving really hard since the start of last year and have paid for the whole lot ourselves although we still have £4600 left to pay as part of venue cost, dj and little odds and bob £2200 of that is in savings account and just need to save the other £2400 from now until the wedding stressing me out but I'm sure we will get their as we have saved so much already that this is not a great deal to save considering.xx

    I thought under £5000, BUT didn't factor in the honeymoon, but ours is a little unconventional as its 6 months long, and we've been saving for ages and ages and have kinda just popped a wedding before the going away as it feels right! So its actually a lot more, but the travelling we were going to do anyway. so over £15,000!
    When you start planning you realise that what you could spend is simply endless, I mean there are dresses out there for £2500+++++ They are BEAUTIFUL, but its just crazy!

    Eeekk!! Ours is as cheap as we can get it, but atm it's clocking in at around 10,000 (inc honeymoon) Arrrrhhhh! how are you all managing to keep such low budgets??? Cause even spending only £128 on the dress and £11 on jewellery for me everything else is Madly expensive... And we havent even thought about the cake.. Or men's suits yet!! Other than Ebay.. wear can I make mine cheaper?? x

    roxii i think most people are managing to keep costs down with their venue's, maybe not getting married to early, and just havng a buffet and stuff, and ebay is defo a blessing..

    our original budget was 10k for 70 day and 160 evening guests. we have stuck to the numbers so far, but we've booked the registrar, venue, cars, photographer and toastmaster and only have a grand left for everything else! we didn't want to put any of our own money in coz we're saving for a house, but looks like we're gona have to lol x

    well it does all depend on what you can compramise on, and how many people you are having. we have cut ours right back to 70 guests. we arent having wedding breakfast so thats a huge price drop just from that. we are getting married in a reg office and the going to local pub for reception that is going to cost the most being just over £1000. xxx

    sounds a bit like me, i have in total about 130 close realatives, some live really far away and we can only really talk on the phone so those ones arent coming. you do have to be harsh with numbers when your trying to do a wedding on a budget. i found that it did help me to use a smaller venue for the ceremony as then i had to only invite 50 guest and there was no budging. tell him that if you dont see them at regularly then your really sorry but they cant come, unless your not fused about having a wedding breakfast either, in wich case alot of your guest can come to the whole day as you dont have to give them a 3 course meal after. the buffet we are having at the pub is only £6 a head, and then when i spoke to the gaffer he said that as we are regulars we will get that discounted to.
    Blad your way to getting things cheap hunny xx

    we were going to do a budgetr wedding around £3k, but Rob's mum has offered to look after Seren so i can go back to work. if i'm bringing in a 'proper' wage we can splash out, i have come up with a few ideas to give our big day the wow factor, like our wedding car that comes in around £500 and we have found a wedding singer that does Micheal buble don't have a quote yet but his website says prices from £300 so it looks like £8k upwards but do you know what, i only plan n doing it once and i'd rather not look back wishing i hadn't been such a tight git.

    Our budget is probably going to be around 10,000 if not a bit more. Mum wants to give us the 10K if she can, and we're saving monthly into a joint account, but as the day is so far away, haven't quite written up a budget yet!! xx
