I think after all is said and done (not including the honeymoon) we’re looking at $28,000 for 60 people.

@jnj2014:  Oye, way too much. Was originally planning on around $30k but we’re easily approaching $60k with a 300 person guest list…

$38k for 220 people, not including the ering or honeymoon. before we did research and got quotes, we thought we could do everything for $30k, but that went quickly out the window.

@jnj2014:  Well, I was shooting for $20,000.  And thought I would only go over by about 1k.  But that estimate was missing a caterer payment and then I went and found my dream dress that was over the original dress budget, let alone the fact that I’d already BOUGHT one.  With rings (wedding bands only, not counting ering) and everything else, we’re looking close to $30,000.  And no honeymoon due to Mr. S’s work so we will save any cash gifts we get and put them towards a trip on our first anniversary.

ETA: We’ve got a 150 invite, if that helps.

@FleeSircus:  What city are you from? Hearing you say that makes me feel relieved. I am having a wedding for 67 people and its a little over $26,000. Our original goal was to spend $15,000 but it just didn’t end up that way…I thought my budget was pretty high for that amount of people but your response makes me realize it might be more common than I thought

@gescot1:  We live in NYC but the wedding is in Michigan.  We almost did 22 people at $18K at the Gramercy Park Hotel but our money went so much further in Michigan, in the winter.  If we were having the same wedding in NYC that we are having in MI we’d probably hit the 75K mark or more.

 

Difference NYC cost Vs. MI Cost

Photographer  8,500 vs 3000

 

DJ                 3,000 vs 1,000

 

Dinner + open bar   $340 per plate vs $150 per plate

 

The price difference on everything was insane
