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.

yeah we’re not too keen on spending a lot of money for a party, thats why I wanted to see photos of weddings that weren’t expensive but had a look that said not expensive, but well put together… we’re doing it in socal somewhere near LA so it’ll probably be a similar situation to yours somewhere close to under 15. it all depends on how are tastes change, our savings, and the number of guests of course, but I wouldn’t want to go over 15k.

I didn’t necessarily feel it was sexist in a way, just something out of the norm which I am well aware of now. lol. a lot of men sit on the couch while women plan, I wish I could do that but I’m more of a detail oriented person so I need to know whats going on and since she doesn’t want to plan it anyway, I’m not letting her mother in law do it because she has how do I say…. quirky tastes.

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.
