We spent $11,000 on our wedding, which includes clothes, venue, food, photos, and all the other bits and bobs. The only thing not included in that total is our honeymoon (an additional $9k to spend a month in Europe, no regrets) and rings (about $1,500 for both). My favourite purchase was my wedding dress — it was the first one I tried on, fit perfectly without alterations, and was on sale for $400. I listed it on Craigslist later on to re-sell it and then ended up giving it to the girl that came to try it on. Yay for paying it forward!
