My SO and I were total opposite on the wedding budget.  He wanted big, BAM budget.  I wanted a more modest affair.  So I’m saying firmly $10,000, not including my dress, or our rings. He can decide the honeymoon 😉

I think we’re going to end up spending $15,000- not including the ring and honeymoon. Fiance used his personal savings for that

Holy shit in a shingle basket, batman!

I spent $8k on 50 people. O____________O I can’t fathom spending the cost of two brand new cars/a good downpayment for a house on an 8 hour day. But if you have the money, more power to you.

@jnj2014: Originally budgeted $40,000, now it’s upped to $45,000 – $50,000 because we decided to splurge on a more expensive venue.  Hopefully this includes everything except honeymoon (e-ring is totally separate from weddding budget imo).

I’m having kind of a 2 part wedding. So phase one is the ceremony and beautiful sit down dinner, which is a total of $1500. My reception (3 months later) Is about $800. The wedding/dinner is 40 people, the reception is 150.


ETA: My total budget was $9,000. When all is said and done, we will be spending about $2,300.

We spent right around the $65k mark for 290 people. This includes everything (honeymoon & all).

It’s too easy to go over budget when you see all of the great things you can incorporate into your big day!

ETA: for 150 people, does not include honeymoon or rings.
