    Hi guys,

    Im getting married august 2012 and thought it would be nice if we had a little group for those that are getting married and maybe help each other along with any weight loss/wedding dilemmas :D

    we were all set to go ahead with the church wedding thing and had everything planned down to the horse and cart lol but we couldnt stand the thought of standing there while everyones watching us haha we were going to honeymoon in vegas anyway so thought why not! cannot believe the cost of a wedding when you add everything up, can i be cheeky and ask your budget? have you sorted out your wedding dress yet?

    we are trying to keep to a budget of 15k but since i have lost my job we may have to reduce that unless something comes up. Weddings are expensive but we couldnt go abroad without upsetting anyone and really want to share the day with our families and it was v important for me to get married in Church. I think eloping would have been cheaper tho! is it expensive to get married in Vegas?

    Wer only having a small wedding really, even though the numbers keep going up! Wer having 34 in the day and then about 80 in the evening. The wedding is going to be in the same hotel all day (hope street) and then wer not worrying about providing transport. Our budget is £8,000 at the absolute max. Wer getting some help from our parents with the budget so wer quite lucky really x

    My parents would have gone ballistic of we'd have gone abroad, plus my OHs little girl wouldnt have been able to come and its important to us that she's with us. Going somewhere just the two of us is a very tempting idea tho and save all the hassle! x

    That's a good idea mrsh as we are bit worried about transport for guests. We've included our honeymoon in our budget so are trying to keep costs down as much as poss so we can have a great holiday! have u booked yours? My mate got married last sept and the weather was amazing!

    for our wedding to be here was costing around the same as yours but we really wanted to honeymoon in vegas aswell so with the cost of that on top i thought why do that to keep family happy so thought sod it off to vegas :p we found a lovely hotel here and for the venue plus afternoon reception was 3,200 (werent having a night doo just wedding breakfast and off on honeymoon) but no saturdays available :( we have an appointment on tuesday for a different place but i think it will end up being vegas.

    No wev not booked a honeymoon, don't think wer going to have the money straight away. We might just book a long weekend at the last minute. Wev included a nice poem in our invitations that basically asks for money instead of gifts cos wev been living together for years. We don't need four toasters lol
