Read on to see how much this DIY wildflower wedding cost. Please note that costs change as the years go by, and prices are subject to change. This is just one couple’s breakdown to give you a rough estimate on how much a wedding like this may cost you.

I'd rather not provide a detailed budget breakdown, but I will share the following information to provide some guidance.

• Our biggest costs were food/drink and photography. Both were very important to us and in the end, worth every penny!
• We spent nothing on flowers and VERY little on decor. We bought a few sets of Christmas lights and some candles, but that was about it.
• We were very fortunate to have MANY friends, family members, and neighbors help in a variety of ways - catering, staffing, parking, organizing, flower arranging, etc. Some was free, a small cost was associated with some, but overall we saved a lot given the help we received.
• We just had a small cake and served sheet cake, so minimized our costs here. We served 3 different kinds of cobblers and ice cream - the cobblers were all homemade by the bride's family and grandmother, so costs were minimal. Ice cream was by a local ice cream shop.
