Well Ladies, I just added up again how much this wedding is going to cost. I have been pretty ...
Yeap, you read it correctly, for around a GRAND.
Maybe it's time I explained how I'm doing it.
To Begin with, we had a list of around 55 people.
Small budget, small list.
But after discussing things with my mother, we decided to finally stick with the church as the venue for both the ceremony and reception.
Since we decided on the church as the venue, we decided to have an open invite for the congregation as well as open up my private list a bit.
This means my total attendees could be around 150 people. The open invitation to the church is POTLUCK. Heck yes, I went that ghetto lol. My private list isn't expected to bring anything, but the church LOVES potlucks! My Venue will only cost me 100 dollars which is actually just the donation to the pastor for the ceremony. So, below is what everything is costing me.
