From New York, wedding in Northern Vermont, $17,000 budget although I’m starting to think that’s going to be on the low side.

Our Budget is $5000, but my mom paid for my dress and drinks at the recpetion (things I wouldn’t have spent big bucks on) so total is actually $7800.

~90 Guests

Semi-destination (local for us!)

Afternoon reception

Cleveland, Ohio Bride Here!  We have $21,500 budgeted from all sides for 175 people.  I am hoping this is where it will be capped….

Hope to keep ours around $10,000 but we’re going a very non-traditional route. Small wedding (about 40 or so guests) followed by a dinner in Massachusetts, with a big party at a state park back in our home state. We’ve managed to cut down a lot of costs by shopping around and trying not to be picky– for example, my dress is from a department store and our party decor was bought used from another bee. The $10,000 doesn’t include our honeymoon.

@Edm___JJS:  

I just got married in Edmonton in September 2013, so thought I would comment as well – your budget seems bang on – we had 200 people attend, and came in just under our $30,000 budget.  

That involved no videography, and DIY-ing flowers and decorations, plus twonie bar.

@Edm___JJS:  Hey!

 

My budget is $27750.  We are slightly over in estimating right now… and I’m trying to trim things down.

Wedding in Saskatchewan.

About 150 guests.

Our budget is $3000. This is only feasible because we have friends and family members that are professional caters, photographers and dj’s who will be providing their services as wedding gifts.

I started with a $5,000 budget which quickly went out the window when I added up my guest list which came in at about 150! We are holding out for $10,000 now but with contributions from both sides will hopefully stay close to our intended $5,000 out of pocket. Was able to save a lot of money on decor with our venue which includes pretty much all decorating thank goodness! We are also able to provide our alcohol to the caterers with no corkage fee so that should save a lot too 🙂 We want a nice wedding, but FI and I both would rather put the money towards our honeymoon and house purchase so we are trying to save wherever possible.

@Edm___JJS:  I’m looking to stay around $15,000. My mother is giving $5,000 so I’m trying to stay within 10,000 out of pocket. Not including the rehersal dinner. My FMIL wants to pay for that.

I think our guest list will be around 100-120 and we are in WA state.

I am really hoping to keep ours to $15k or under. This does not include my dress & veil, which my mom bought for me. Our guest list will likely come in around 140 so fingers crossed. We’re in central MA.
