read this post from the East Side Bride
I was beginning to feel a tiny twinge of guilt after going over budget on my wedding... especially knowing that so many beautiful people out there like 10,000+ and the budget savvy bride who had awesome weddings on a budget! And especially now that we bought a house and all the house expense are starting to pile up. I can't help but to look back and think "hmm... maybe I shouldn't have spent so much on the flowers... I could've saved that money and bought myself a nice couch instead."
But.... after reading this post from the East Side Bride... I feel much, much better. My wedding was indeed the most wonderful celebration of our love that I could ever hoped/planned for, and it was definitely, definitely worth every penny. So what if I went overboard a little? It's once in a lifetime after all :)
budget budget budget.... I've now come to term with my defeat.
