    We had 85 guests and spent about $10,000 on the wedding (included dress, venue, food, alcohol, rentalas, lighting, flowers, photography, dj, etc).

    @TG123:  Whatever you can comfortably afford and feel is appropriate for your wedding. You can do amazing things with any budget. You just have to decide what is important to you and be realistic depending on what you decide to spend. You may need to DIY things or be willing to spend more if you want to accomplish a certain look/feel.

    @TG123:  We’re having about 115 people.  I’d so wanted the total cost to stay around $15,000 but I didn’t take into account the 93,294 miscellaneous expenses that would pop up.  $146 in stamps for the invites, $150 for the officiant, $200 for bridesmaids and groomsmen gifts…I’m slipping closer to $20,000.  My dress cost $350 to purchase and $275 to alter…my frugal mind is constantly exploding throughout this proces.
