Would you have a wedding with $1000 or....

Hmmm I'd wait and have a more extravagant wedding. I know friends of my ex's had a wedding for only $1500, and it was quite tacky. They were lucky to save money on things, eg the groom's mum and dad are pastors so they married them, his mum also made the bride and bridesmaid dresses, and a few other things I can't remember. Personally I would like to spend 5k on a wedding. Hopefully no more than that.

I think go for it now, sounds lovely. BUT I don't know if you'll really be able to do it for $1k. I would think the celebrant and the alcohol might blow the $1k right there, with nothing left for food or anything else. Our celebrant cost over $500 2 years ago, and that was standard price. Might either/both sets of parents be willing to contribute a little something?

Dh and I managed a wedding for 5k but I believe it's possible if you have enough people to help out on the day

Without reading all the replies, personally I would not ever think of doing it.
You say you just had a bub..... Wouldn't it be nicer if bubs was walking/a bit older, and to have the nice wedding you dreamed of...?
I'm sorry to those who have done it on less and loved it, but OP has said she had planned a nice big extravagent wedding,.... OP would you feel honestly satisfied having a small wedding under $1000??? You don't want to look back and think "If I'd just waited a year or so"..........

Might even waiting another 6 or 7 months help the situation? i.e. this time next year.

I know someone that got married on $1k kind of as a dare, to prove it could be done. They did it, and it was a lovely vintage style wedding. Very personal. They had it on her parents property and it was pretty magical.
About 2 years later she said that she loved it, but she wished she'd done it the way she'd really dreamed of as a little girl. So I guess it's entirely up to you! We're going to have a renewal ceremony in a few years time, and we'll have it overseas with only close friends and family. That's what DH wanted originally and I think in having MY dream wedding he missed out a bit. So we're going to do it his way next time around and it will be just as wonderful I think

We did ours for $1400, I just could not wrap my head around spending in excess of $10k for 1 bloomin day. It was a beautiful day, 30 of our closest friends and family, we were married at 5pm and had a small cocktail party after the ceremony. All of our guests bar 4 of our cloest friends left by 8pm and we then went to a local 5 star resturant for dinner.
10 Years later and we are still happily married

My wedding cost around $3k. That includes the photographer, my dress, his suit and a 10 day honeymoon. I am still married, nearly 14 years later. Our wedding was about being married and making a commitment, not some sort of extravaganza. Just get married. I think people have lost sight about what it's all about and get caught up in the ceremony, rather than the commitment.
