Read on to see how much this outdoor romance 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.
Dress: $3,000 The first dress I tried on was the one I ended up selecting. It was over our initial budget of $2,000 but nothing compared. I went to several other bridal shops and could not get this gorgeous dress out of my mind. I knew I had to have it so we were able to stretch a little for the perfect dress.
Suits: $220/person Jos. A Banks (Matt was able to wait until they had a sale that was buy one suit get two free. Each groomsmen was able to keep their suit instead of paying a significant amount for a rented one. Matt divided the cost evenly between all the groomsmen. For groomsmen gifts he bought each guy the shirt and tie we wanted them to wear for the wedding. I would say they made out really well :)
Flowers: $2,500 I was very surprised how expensive flowers were when initially looking. My Aunt Katie found Flowerman where we were able to create our own arrangements which helped keep the cost down significantly. Not only was it cost effective but it we had such a great time putting together all the flowers the day before. We were able to make them exactly how we wanted them!
Cake: $230 Matt and I knew we wanted to have different dessert options for our guests so we decided to get a small cake for us to cut and a top layer to save for our one year anniversary. Some of the bigger wedding cakes can be thousands of dollars and this is something that neither one of us cared too much about.
Desserts: $200 Matt and I both have a BIG sweet tooth. We wanted to make sure we included donuts in our wedding day (our personal
favorite). Working with Giant Eagle helped keep the cost down and allowed for us to select a variety of dessert options for our guests. I would highly recommend doing this!
Photographer: $2,500 Ashley Leslie was VERY reasonably priced and wonderful to work with. Her and her husband were with Matt and I the whole day. She captured each moment of our wedding better than I could have imagined.
