I had a beautiful wedding on a budget. We spent $3000 all up but that was because I knew I wanted to splurge a bit on the cake and flowers (cost $1000) - although I know $1000 is probably not considered as splurging for alot of brides!
We had a garden ceremony with fairy lights etc and we have a spit roast with gravy, rolls, potato salads and garden salads etc. It was a beautiful day. I personally love the low key intimate weddings. Any wedding is beautiful and you will have a lovely day no matter how much or little you spend
