both of our parents helped where they could, but my wife and I paid for the bulk of the costs. just how it goes sometimes, although it gave me a lot of power to say no/yes to certain things.

im glad they bought her dress. both sets helped out as much as they could.

i think we kept it at around 12k (las vegas) and no we didnt get married anywhere near the strip!

we had to save after the wedding to go on our honeymoon in the summer. we got the wedding portion for free cuz she worked at the church, so that was a burden lifted.
