    my e-ring was a family ring so $0. Our wedding bands combined were $1k. The wedding is going to be around $20k.

    My ring was a little over $26k, wedding ~$150k, so one-sixth-ish.

    I voted less than 5% but with how much the wedding is costing it’s probably going to end up closer to 5-15%.  Oops, sorry!

    I would much rather spend more money on something I’m going to wear for the rest of my life than one day for a bunch of people I might not even like.  LOL.  But we’re OLD (43 and 42) so I’m sure that has something to do with it.

    My e-ring was almost 11k.  We are getting married in Grand Cayman during our wedding/honeymoon cruise.  So far we’ve spent $3400 on the cruise itself, $775 for the lady to marry us (includes all the paperwork, etc.), and 400 for the photographer.  I still need to buy a dress and flowers but we will still be well under the cost of the e-ring.  I will not be spending a lot on a dress I’ll wear once.

    Interesting to see everyone’s answers here!

    Well if we end up doing it my way, it’ll be waaaaay over 100% since I don’t want a wedding.

    Engagement Ring alone will come in just under 9k & another 2k for wedding band. I’m hoping to do the wedding for less than 20k so I polled 50%. I have no problem justifying the ring cost but really struggle with a wedding because it’s less than one day of my life. But my Fiance wants a “traditional” wedding.

    My e-ring cost 10k but was valued at 17k, and our wedding, including both rings, my dress, flights, and all little bits will probably cost around 10k, too (we are having it on a cruise ship)

    Over 100% for us.  My ring was ~3,000 and we eloped.  Neither of us wanted to spend money on a party.  His mother didn’t care what we did, and my father went with us.  Afterwards, friends came over, and we all went out to eat together.  It was a blast!

    My ering was right around $32k and our wedding (including wedding rings but not including honeymoon) was about $75k-ish.  So about 43%.  It was a large (220ppl) wedding in NJ… costs added up quickly!

    My ering cost about 1500, less if my partner hadn’t lost the first stone lolol. And wedding (including honeymoon) was $8000 and we paid everything ourselves!

    My ring cost about $1,600 if I remember correctly. Fiance only told me roundabout cost once. I know it was under $2000. Our wedding and homeymoon will be between $5-8,000. My parents are contributing $5,000 and the in-laws are contributing $2,000. We are budgeting to contribute about $2,000 as well but it doesn’t look like we’ll be tapping into that much.
