We had a few unexpected expenses, the first was my dress alterations. Originally a friend of mine had promised he would do them for free, when the time came to do it-he vanished and I had to scramble to find someone. The person I found did an amazing job but at a cost of $350
a few things to keep in budget mind is paying for postage-a small expense but one to budget for. (I think we spent in total about $100 on it)
Also dont forget to plan on spending money on yourself-hair, makeup, nails, tanning that ran me about $350+ for all of the above
also special undergarments are not cheap.
One way we discovered we could save some money was to always offer to pay cash. This ended up saving us about a thousand dollars overall. Everything we could pay in cash we did and often saved at least the taxes (which are 15% where I live) Just plan ahead and keep cash in your wallet.
