It feels like just yesterday that I was busy organizing, crunching numbers and sharing my estimated wedding costs and budgeting tips with you. Now our wedding has come and gone and it’s time to share the final tally.

Everybody warns you that the day will go by in a heartbeat – and they’re right! And while it was stressful in the moment, it feels bittersweet to be finished with it all. My husband (!) and I can now reflect on all of the amazing memories, hilarious photos and financial lessons we’ve learned along the way to our “I dos.”
