Read on to see how much this simple Spanish 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.

Regarding my budget, I can't tell you much. I never thought of a budget, maybe because I always thought my wedding day was going to happen only once in my lifetime so budget was not a priority. I can say I thought a lot about the dress. I think a bride is always beautiful, it's unusual when she isn't, but that doesn't depend on how much the dress costs. I preferred to be able to spend more on a good meal, improve the decorations, favors for our guests, a jazz band, hiring my wedding planner Indara from El Sofa Amarillo and making everything much more beautiful instead of spending a lot of money on a dress I won't wear again. Everyone has their opinion and their priorities and mine was to have my guests enjoy every single moment. I didn't think much about the price of the complements, but I chose things I would be able to wear again. My dress cost $1200, my shoes $270, my bouquet $200 and my headpiece $175. I don't regret anything I did or anything I bought, I think it was the most beautiful day in my life and I know it was a very special day for our guests too, and that's what we wanted.
