This submission for a 60-person event in Taos, New Mexico happened in September of 2022. We asked the bride a few questions about her submission (plus her advice for other couples!) below.
We asked the bride a few questions about her submission (plus her advice for other couples!) below!
“Spend on things you care about and go budget on things you don’t. Ask family and friends to help with DIY.”
“Price, Vendor Personality, Availability”
“We bought the alcohol ourself and had 3 types of beer and 3 signature cocktails. We had unopened leftovers after the night ended and unfortunately our state policy doesn't allow us to return unopened bottles. Bartender cost included in this number”
“We found the videographer online, for photography we had my brother-in-law. The videography included 2 videographers and full ceremony + reception videos.”
“I bought it on Azazie in Jan 2022 before they increased overall prices. Alterations were done for free by my Mother in law. Included are some hair jewels from Amazon and white shoes at a local shoe store.
MAROO NOTE: Maroo Budget Talks are designed to encourage couples and wedding pros to share REAL wedding budgets from across the country–all types of events from elopements to weeklong events and everything in between! Why? Because the “average costs” in the press are not realistic numbers for most couples and wedding pros (especially those events couples see on social media). Maroo is on the mission to showcase all types of real budgets and costs because we’re on a mission of transparency in the wedding industry.
