Bates Wedding Budget

The Bates are in wedding planning mode once again. In the following video, Gil and Kelly Bates sit down with their oldest daughter, Michaella, to discuss her budget and guest list. Less than four weeks to go until Michaella and Brandon tie the knot. After August 15th, there will only be 15 Bates wedding to go. No big deal, right?

  2. Small wedding! What a hoot. Why don't they save the money and put it towards a house? This doesn't make any sense at all. I had my immediate family & paid cash for a house. Now I am a half a million dollars richer and can afford to have friends and family stay and visit over the years.

    1. I understand your view but they both come from large families. And they have friends who have very large families. It could not be helped. They watched their spending
      The cake was done by a relative just as the flowers were done by a relative. Micheal was wise on the wedding dress. She was very careful and did not buy expensive. She watched her costs. And Brandon was just as wise. They waited. They were friends for.a while. They hurried nothing. They courted for a long time. And saved. Micheal had also talked about people bring desserts or food to the reception. She thought it all out and must have saved quite a bit on doing so. She is a smart girl. She waited on the Lord for 5 years before the wedding day. I believe they will be well off one.day if they continue being as thrifty as Gil.

  3. Everyone has their own priorities. :) If they wish to have 800 people at their wedding, then they should go for it!

  4. What do you put your money into for the wedding ? the.dress? Some.peolpe put hundreds sometimes thousands into it. Flowers? Micheal and Brad was spared this . Cake? Again Michael did have to pay for.the cake. Food? She had different ones providing food. Decorations? I believe Michael was careful on that too. She comes from a very frugal family. So where did most of her expense come? Ok would think the invitations. And some food. Remember her parents helped out, she had savings so did Brandon and they waited and planned for years. They went slowly on their courtship. They are very wise young couple who had excellent role models. Just look art their character! I am sure Michael had a lot of guidance from her parents and her sister Erin and sister in law Whitney. Look how those two girls and Kelly guided her in picking the perfect church for the ceremony. Micheal was attempted in picking a different church before she saw the last one which Erin strongly encouraged her to see. I am sure Michael made great decisions all along.
