It all depends on where you’re located, how good you are at DIY projects, and how willing you are to scout out good deals. My wedding was around 15,000, and I’m very happy. We’re paying for pretty much all of it ourselves.. my parents gave us 1000 and paid for my dress. If you don’t like the budget your dad has given you, then there’s nothing stopping you from saving your own moulah to add to it.

Depends on how many people you plan on having and where you are.  100+ guests in a big city, doubt it.  75 people say, Kansas?  Probably.

My budget for everything but the honeymoon is $16K, and its going to be FABULOUS. just gotta shop around, look out for bargauins for your DIY stuff, and be flexible with your ideas and wants 🙂

 

And obviously, just add your own money. We’re paying 12K on our own with 4K from my parents. For crying out loud, he gave you 15K!! 🙂

My budget for everything except the honeymoon is about $14k. I had to make sacrifices like having the wedding on a Sunday, using a restaurant instead of a banquet hall and keeping the guest list at 100.

@creativeplannertobee:  Ditto. Someone needs to find a better hobby than trying to stir up negativity.

@sjs:  Our parents came to a budget of $17k but we just decided to add more to it so will be around $21k once we add our parts.

My budget is 15k thanks to my parents. For us it is enough money to get what we want in our day and have about 100 guests. We are having our wedding in my parents backyard to save some $$ as well.
