Trying to do it on the cheap as we are planning ours in less then 3 months, so saving wasn't an option lol.
Reception is roughly $120 per head - includes 3 course meal, table decorations , dj, room hire and we are having the ceremony there at no extra cost.
Photographer: $1800 prob most expensive thing other than the reception.
Dress: $700 bought off the rack $70 to get it altered.
Flowers: $240 only having one bridesmaid so I only need to boquets then the guys button hole things
Car: Using our car for Df (bmw) then his bestman parents have offered there holden callet for my car - So no cost there.
Bonbaneries: got small boxes wholesale for 75cents each and then getting chocolate hearts wholesale , so saving heaps there.
Invites: I made myself.
Cant think if I am forgetting anything - yet to find out cost for hair and makeup mum is paying for it out of an account she had for me when I was little. Oh guys suits we are hiring them for $500 for the two suits.
HTH - Were possible I have tried to do things ourselves and we have only splurged on the reception and photographer but if you find a reception that includes everything it saves alot of money.
