Caitlyn&Steven *hopefully* Wishes Wedding :)
Hello! I've been around asking questions on the boards here and so many of you have been so helpful thank you<3
My fiance Steve and I are currently looking at the Wishes wedding package in WDW for September 2014! After much anxiety, I have finally called the planning office last week and I received lots of information that was extremely helpful on whether or not it was really in our budget.
Although we know our budget and our guest count (which could change obviously due to a destination wedding, etc.), I am realllllly nervous about putting that deposit down and locking in our date, etc. I'm super scared that once it's locked down we are going to go over our budget by accident with something we forgot to write down.
We are planning on no floral or decor, which has helped our budget greatly. Basically, we are going bare minimum on things such as that, but the food scares me. Even though I have gone over the numbers a hundred thousand times, I'm terrified to lock it down and end up too over budget and in hot water with my father who is kindly helping us out to the best he can.
Has anyone else experienced this or is currently feeling this that has anything to offer in terms of help? I'm planning on calling my planner back of course to talk things over with her, but it's still really nerve-wracking

I know how you feel! I'm having a Wishes wedding this September, and it took me months of crunching numbers from budgets on this board before I felt comfortable signing a contract.
Just be honest with yourself about what you can afford and are willing to go without. My minimum is 10,000, and I've had no trouble staying under with 40 guests and a brunch reception.
Also, if you feel like you need more time to
decide, September isn't the most popular month, so you don't have to book it right at 12 months to get a date you're happy with. I booked my date at 10 months out, and changed my reception venue at 6 months out with no problems!
Just keep crunching numbers and saving money until you're comfortable
