Ok, will continue to update this as I go...

So far - just under $10,000.
Our original aim was for us to spend no more than $8000 and with the help of my mum paying for food at the reception I think it is definitely achievable.
The only thing that I refuse to go cheap with is the photographer. If I am going to spend all this money on a fantastic day for me and my husband, I want to have gorgeous pics to remind me for life.
