    We spent about a total of $23,000 if I minus the honeymoon and rings, it would be $161 per person for 116 guests.

    Around $380/pp(22 guests)

    However, we are having a destination wedding and are paying for 3 parents as well as ourselves and then about $4500 for the wedding itself once there. It’s the cost of the extra people that really jacks our cost up. Based on the wedding alone without the travel its about $204

    I can’t remember the exact cost but we had about 70 guests and spent about $40+k. That’s at least $571/person. The unfortunate part of having a small wedding is that some costs don’t go down. For example, the venue fee, the DJ fee and the photography fee are still the same whether you have 10 guests or 300 guests.

    Right now we are probably sitting around $150 I’d say with what we have planned. That will of course depend on guest count.

    We will be spending about $40,000 with 150 guests. So $266 per person.

    We’re looking at about 130 people and $135K so, rounding up, about $1,000 per person. Wow, I didn’t realize how much that is but yup…
