I’m not hard to please. All I need is good love.

Yes my Loves, I have receipts! but, the way my receipt stash is set up…I figured I skip the cents and give you the estimates rounded up. Chances are we spent less in categories like food, travel, and decor. Nevertheless, we came in under $1000 …and that even includes our rings believe it or not, but we’ll save that for a write waiting to be typed. Honestly, I never thought I’d be sharing this budget with anyone other than Frank, but I’ve had so many people say they cannot believe we did a ceremony, reception, and honeymoon under $1000. I hope this can be helpful for any of you looking to have a beautiful and memorable wedding and not break your bank account.
