    I just think that if I was the best friend, and read my best friend saying that my wedding was heading towards being tacky I'd be very hurt. To me, a wedding is about witnessing two people you love declare their love to each other to the world. It's not about the bonbonniere, or the centre pieces, the chair covers, or the colour of the bridesmaids dresses. Turn up, celebrate a special day with people you love, eat the food, dance the night away, and enjoy the experience without judging their decorating style, or the choices they made based on their budget.

    yes I agree totally. end of the day, it's the wedding of the 2 people getting married so what others think should largely be irrelevant. my sister told me we were selfish for getting married overseas as it meant not everyone could attend. I thought that was rude but ignored her comments. it was about us, it was our day, and we did what we wanted.

    how would her best friend read those comments though? like I'm sure she's not dropping these hints anywhere the best mate could see them??

    It's a public forum, and there are a lot of people who join, but never post. So really, there is the possibility that she would read it. Small chance, sure. But not impossible.

    2500 altogether, cant remember the breakdown. May come back and add later

    We had immediate family only at ceremony, and invited the rest for a party afterwards.
    Half our family got offended and didnt show, even after rsvping.

    I'm not going to say. But it was a lot. We chose to marry interstate, bells & whistles, and had a honeymoon in the Maldives and Borneo. We figured it was a once in a lifetime thing and never regretted a cent we spent. We even took out a loan for part of it, paid back a few months later.

    Oh ok I just read back good on you for sharing! Sounds amazing. We didn't spend that much, probably about half that, wedding & honeymoon combined. I'd have to go back through my old files and find the budget planner to be exact.

    About $9000 and our honeymoon was a gift.

    **Eta-I feel I should add that I got hair amd make up free, a 50% discount on photos and no hirage for cars or chairs for beach venue because we utilised the services of friends. I also made my own cake with the help of a friend**

    Although I loved the day, if I could do it again it would be different but I still wouldn't be comfortable spending more than 10k. We had 240 guests because our families are so big. Thinking back, I shouldn't have invited most of them and just had immediate family and close friends and spent the money on exactly what we wanted instead of settling on the most affordable option to accommodate so many people. No venuen in the area could hold that many people so we had to hire a hall that we weren't allowed to decorate. Maybe in 3 years (10yr anniversary) we can renew our vowels and have our dream wedding hehe.
