I think this post in particular helps a lot! I've seen people factor in honeymoon and rings, neither of which I think count at all.

And I totally respect your decision. It's no one elses business.

When we started I thought everything would be included in the budget. Little did I know how quickly these costs add up! I think our list of includes will actually end up being pretty close to yours. I know it's bad but these days I find myself "staying within the budget" by just saying I'll pay for it separately. Well if I keep paying for stuff separately, it's still considered spending money.
