Hi, New Wolly here :wv 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? :o0
