@otto2008:  My Fiance has done more of the hands on planning than I have.  So you aren’t alone.  

Our venue, food, bar tab is 23k.  And we’re getting married in the off season on a Sunday.  We did add a course, add a specialty bar, extra hour of open bar, etc.  It could be done for less.  But not the way we wanted.

I spent $7500 for our 80 person wedding (including my dress & his suit,) and was happy with the visual results. For us the key to saving money was an outdoor wedding which means minimal $ spent on decor. Our venue had both an ourdoor space where we had the ceremony & reception & a covered veranda where we had dancing. Throw up some lights, candles, and lanterns and it set the mood at a low cost. Also DIYd all centerpeices, bouquets, invitations, programs, escort cards, menus, table numbers, cupcake stand, memory boxes, and signage.
