Originally we set a budget of around $15,000. We knew we wanted to invite as many friends and family as possible as it would be one of the few chances in our lives to have our widely separated families together at once. In the end, we went over our budget. I’m sure this is no huge surprise to anyone currently planning a wedding! Wedding costs add up fast. You might even have that wedding-budget anxiety attack when you realize how expensive your dream wedding will cost. Suddenly your Pinterest-worthy wedding dreams begin to fade. But don’t give up! There are lots of ways to trim your budget and incorporate DIY elements to keep costs down. We certainly could have had a much cheaper wedding without sacrificing the look and feel of our big day.
Anyway, enough yapping from me. Here’s the Camel Wedding Budget Breakdown:
