Budget ? have i gone to far? or just right?
hey all B2B and H2B
we finally did a cost up with a year to go to see if we are on track we originally had a budget of £17k -we both have good jobs and can afford the budget - we are also saving for our first house at the same time.
when people ask how much we are spending they are shocked!
they all say its one day dont spend it but if its what we want why does it matter? other friends who have asked who we have booked for things i.e photographer/ cake maker/ decorator/ have seen there prices after asking for the links and then flown off on one saying how could we spend that sort of money!- then i keep getting sly remarks when were out for a drink .... " she can get the drinks in she clearly has to much money to spend" ... im really hurt by it im now not telling anyone about anyone else we have booked we work bloody hard for our money and have very good jobs for our age! so why shouldn't we spend what we can afford to.
just wondering has anyone else been in the situation where you get little remarks over silly things it has really hit a nerve with me especially as they asked me what and who we were booking it wasn't that i shouted from the roof top my budgets
apparently the budget is huge for the amount of people we have coming
80 day and 130 evening - my friends then worked it out on the day guests and said im spending around £212pp for the day guests!
the other issue im having is we said no children! we dont want them there and its our wedding but when the invites went out we had mixed issues some of my friends cant wait for the night off and let their hair down, OH's family have said if you spending that much you can pay for my sitter! - am i wrong to feel i shouldn't have to pay for that!
im now stressing out about it!
