Just like with non-destination weddings, there really isn’t a “normal” range. It all depends on your plans.

I live in Los Angeles and our wedding will be about 45 miles north in the town I grew up in.  We will be having around 150 people show up (inviting 200) and our wedding will be betwen $75,000 and $80,000.  If we were getting married in Los Angeles, that price would go up at least by $10,000.

This is one of the most expensive areas to get married.

Like MissACS said, it really depends on your plans, and like Mrs. Louboutin said, Southern California is a very expensive place to get married. I live in Los Angeles and chose to have a destination wedding elsewhere because it was so much cheaper. I can’t give a great estimate, since I didn’t look very long in the area before deciding to wed elsewhere, but my very initial research for 100 people at various places in LA and San Diego was going to be 17k – 20k minimum just for venue and catering – this is before everything else: flowers, cake, photographer, dress, music, etc. My venue research ranged from public parks (yes, they charge a fee in LA!) to hotels to beachfront restaurants.
