Real Reader Budgets

If you’d like to submit your real wedding budget, please fill out the following information and email it to us at guest@weddingbee.com.  For privacy we’ll post your budget with your initials only, or anonymously, if you prefer.

Please provide a brief description of where you saved and where you splurged, and how your budget changed from your initial estimate to what you ended up spending.

Below are the typical expenses to fill out, but you can adjust them to fit your particular budget (or include other categories). You’re welcome to write short explanations of your expenditures and including pictures as guest blogger KM did here really helps readers see how you stretched your dollars. 🙂
