  • Wedding: October 2017 - Sauk Valley Resort

Getting married this October and we’ll be around $15,000 for everything except honeymoon spending (resort is paid for already and is included in the wedding budget, but we have separate savings for the rest because we have no idea what we’ll be spending). We’ll have about 120 guests in Michigan.

Whenever I think of adding up the real number I feel a bit sick. But I think it will be around 60k for 140 people, in LA.

  • Wedding: November 2016

Got married in NY metro area in November.  73 guests, spent between $14k and $15k including everything except my wedding ring, which is a family ring.  We saved a lot of money by ordering flowers from thebouqs and putting them together ourselves.
