60 guests, $10k. We could have spent less, but we chose to cut the guest list to spend more per guest.

55-65 guests. The budget was 12k, but I have a feeling it may end up being closer to 13k. This excludes wedding rings, honeymoon and grooms tuxedo.

60-70 guests.  $45K in wedding-only costs (i.e., not including honeymoon, rings).  Our “budget” started out around $30K but ballooned pretty quickly.

We are at 220 guests, and a cost of about 30,000 for a large traditional french cathloic wedding.  Most of our cost is in food and alcohol, which is at 22,000  (hors doeuvers, 5 course meal, midnight buffet and open bar)

About 40 guests, and we’re hoping to come in around $4,000 for the wedding and reception.  The honeymoon makes that number quite a bit bigger…

100 guests and our budget is about $28,000. But I’m hoping to save save save and come in closer to $20,000.

We’re saying 18K (not including honeymoon or e-ring) for 180 guests, and guessing 150 will come… should be interesting!
