Our trip was amazing!  Ceremony was wonderful.  Sunset ceremony on the beach. Worth every penny.  Which, by the way, the ceremony itself only cost around $600, including pictures.  

We spent way less on food than I budgeted for, and only did two excursions, which I had planned for.   We think did everything, including rings, for under $6,000.  

Anywho, we received $650 in cash from various people before we left, which was very helpful!  All of June's bills are paid and I still have money in the bank.  

Excited for this new chapter in my life.

Oh, Serenity I am so very happy for you!! And such a great job on the budget too!!  It sounded FABULOUS.

Hey, one thing people forget when they get married, be sure to change your W4 to have more taken out for Federal taxes.  You will now incur the "marriage penalty" as you do not each get the higher standard deduction as Head of Household.  But always check with your tax expert.
