FGB’ers who’ve gotten married, how much was your wedding?
One of my closest friends is in the middle of wedding planning and she’s pretty upset with how much everything is to costing. I’m someone who’s been there before, so I kind of wanted to laugh. Because it’s hard to really grasp the financial burden it can be unless you and your partner decide to start planning an event like that for yourself.
Because let’s be honest, hosting a party for your big day, including a wedding and reception can make a serious dent in your wallet (although, it doesn’t have to be!).
Our cost was $55k for the day’s festivities — with major purchases including the venue, food, alcohol, the band, a photographer, the dress, the tux, flowers, transportation and I’m sure a number of other details I’m missing. Since this is a supportive, non-judgmental community, I had to ask! For those who’ve gotten married, how much was your wedding day? And if you want to add more, what was the most expensive part?
And if you’re married and didn’t have a wedding/reception, what did you do (if anything) to celebrate and how much was that?
