Hey Purp!
So Im looking at 19.5k all together. that includes EVERYTHING( i stole the text message and s'more bar idea, and im getting a chocolate fountainEmbarrassed)LOL except my dress.
the lady gave me 2 separate menus to choose from and im kind of overwhelmed.
I picked and priced foods that were most appealing to me but im sure i'll move them around.
I decided not to use their DJ, photographer, cake or desserts so that saved a nice chunk of money.
 
I have a bunch of connects in NO so booking a DJ was easy! He's only charging $300 because he knows my grandpa. The photographer is my paran and Dyle Films is doing videography and the photobooth for $900. The cake that I picked out is $350 and that comes with 200 petit fours (my favorite) Embarrassed

My oldest sister's wedding was around about 115k
My middle sisters is probably going to be about 10-20 k more than that
I have no clue how much mine is going to be. I actually just started talking to my SO about choosing a venue that way we'll have it early. I already know which venue I want, I just have to talk my SO into going with that venue and making him think it was partially his idea to choose it LOL.
My wedding will likely be the most expensive of my sisters. We also have quite a few plane tickets to buy for my SO's close family to attend.
