is this the appropriate place to post it or is there another board i should post it on?

here's the short version:

location: japanese gardens in a public park, free (only our families attended)
judge: friend of family, free
trolley to take us to and from wedding: $200
my dress: $80 at anthropologie
husband's outfit: $150 khakis and white linen shirt
bed and breakfast for nights before and after wedding: $400 but worth every cent
invitations for brunch: made them ourselves, a lot of time but only $500 (check out www.paper-source.com)
reception: brunch at our favorite brunch place for 100 people, high ticket item, $1,500
dinner for family night of wedding: $300
boat tour for family day after wedding: $300

a little over $3,000 but not by much! once i let go of the idea that i *had* to get married in hawaii, my husband and i were able to be so much more creative with what we had. for me, working on this with him made me even more sure that i wanted to spend the rest of my life with him.

thanks again to everyone for convincing me that extravagence does not = perfect ceremony!
