I’m just starting the idea of a 5K budget. What would you REALLY do? I am creating a challenge for myself and am looking for input from anyone.
The rules for “my” 5K wedding are to follow the core of what I valued in my actual marriage 5 years ago. These rules include:
1 – we would still invite who we invited. 125 showed up, I’d have to order 100 invitations (we had tons of social invites of people who would never travel.) I had and still have no interest in a tiny wedding. I’d rather go without some things than not invite people.
2 – we still would not have an outdoor affair. my husband has a long line of overly-warm people so the idea of being in a tux and sweating doesn’t appeal to him. I hate bugs and sweating as well. We had a fall wedding and would still have a fall wedding. (too many southerners for our northern winters.)
I have some ideas but this is the month where I’m full time with our small children and don’t have as much time – the end of June I’ll be more free.
This blog is for people to comment. What would _YOU_ do, have done, with each category of weddings? Photography? Cake? Dress? Favors? Reception location? Obviously 5K requires a lot of creativity which likely means you’d have some very local ideas. But we’ll start where we start and I’ll build my own new wedding within $5,000. It was $12,000 before!
Comment on this blog and I’ll be building via this blog as well as on the website.
