The budget! What I can say is that it was really difficult to not go over our budget and in the end we ended up doing it. We can share a few good estimates on some things:
Decorations are hard, but maybe $500 total - materials and cedar wood for the flower boxes and wooden signs were about $65 total and we handmade them. I also bought some used decorations from another bride, and votives and candles at an online discount, printed signage and table numbers from a vendor on Etsy, some frames from Ikea, the pie signs and menu board were less than $10 total to make.
Programs: $75 - Dave's awesome sister designed and made these beautiful programs (including a fun word search she created).
Flowers: $700 - we bought them fresh cut from a local flower farm and assembled the centerpieces and other flower decor ourselves the day before with the help of mothers, grandmothers and bridesmaids. Also, we actually had more than enough flowers - almost too much - but they were gorgeous and perfect for us.
Pie's: $315 for 18 pies. They were ridiculously amazing and had not a slice left by the end of the evening.
The top three most expensive things we spent money on was the venue rental (we had the whole property for the weekend, including accommodations for our immediate families and bridal party), the caterer and then our rentals (tent with sides and liner, chairs, tables, portable restroom, lighting, etc).
