‘Budgetarian wedding’: Couple spends P3,000 on wedding, shares breakdown


As commodity prices soar to the highest level in the Philippines, a couple has decided to tie the knot solemnly and spend around P3,000 only on a civil wedding. 

In a now-viral Facebook post, Criz Lazarte shared she and her husband were able to exchange their vows with a small amount of money only.

The bride provided on her Facebook account the breakdown of their expenses: 

> Cenomar worth P420 (P210 each)

> Second-hand civil wedding casual dress is P200

> Second-hand polo for the groom is P100

> Fake rings are worth P50

> Snacks including puto, bihon, slice bread, bilao, putchenta, cassava, and halo-halo worth P2,000

Criz said that they did no longer rent a reception because the guests were served the food inside the mayor’s office where the ceremonies were also held.
