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??
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.
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.
