Hope this isn't too personal, but I'm just curious as to how ur wedding budgets are being broken down?? I'm getting such a mad range of quotes for all the various bits and pieces like band, flowers etc.
I fully understand that typically the more you pay the better quality product/service you will recieve but just wondering how much we are all typically spending on things like [b:27q9flbb]band, flowers, photographer, videographer [/b:27q9flbb]etc?
Maybe we'll be able to seek out those suppliers giving the better value deals as a result?
New Wolly here
I can't remeber exact prices as I have lost the budget
For Band & DJ we paid 2700
For Flowers we paid 1800
For Photographer it was €500 for day & then whatever we spend on the ablum & other big pics
Videographer cost 1200
We will be paying:
1900 for band & dj
1295 for photographer (650 on the day)
220 for church music
That's all I have organised at the moment! HTH - make sure to shop around (I think we're getting married on the same day if I remember correctly?)

€700 - Videographer
€2,250 - Photographer (Storybook album, 2 parent albums, c.d. and smaller slideshow, and engagement photoshoot)
