$10 Million vs $2,500 Wedding

  • Print

When I heard the price tag for Kim Kardashian's wedding to Kris Humphries was topping $10 million dollars, it got me thinking about my wedding to Brian.

I remember it well.  We had money but decided to spend it on our kids and things for our house and go very conservative on the wedding.

For $2,500 we had a great day that we will always remember.  

I even kept all of the receipts in a treasure box to prove to the kids later that doing a wedding on a budget is very possible.

We hired a photographer for $150.  Photos By Bill.  He did a great job.  We got tons of photos that I cherish to this day.

My dress cost $297 on sale.  Tux rentals were $200 (3 young boys.  Brian's was free.) Bridesmaids dresses I found on a discount rack for $30 each for two girls. Flowers cost $323.  Chair rental was $75.00.  We rented a mansion for $250.  I found a lady (Cakes By Mary) who baked my 3 tier cake for $162.  I had a local caterer do punch and finger sandwiches in the mansion after the wedding for $350.  We took our immediate family to dinner at  a seafood restaurant for $600.00 (including tip.)  I did my own hair and my mom did my makeup.  The minister was a friend and we gave him $50 to perform the ceremony.

Total bill was $2,500.  It has lasted 17 years and going strong.  No end in sight. 

I wonder how many good years $10 million will buy Kim?
