It really depends on what kind of wedding you want. There are plenty of resort packages where you could range from $<10k-20k and up. We had a DW in an Asian country, but went upper scale. We splurged on a venue and flew in a photographer, so those are definitely things you don’t have to spend money on. 

We had three days of events for 50 ppl and spent about $65k. 

In my opinion, DW are usually around the same cost for vendors- you only end up saving money because you have less guests.

We spent about $15,000 for our all-inclusive DW in Mexico. That included flights and accommodation for my husband and I only for one week.  We had 8 guests who paid their own way.   We didn’t stay at a super expensive place but the wedding package costs and photographer added up very quickly.

I had a DW in Vegas and it was around 30. That is everything. We had around 80 guest, and helped pay the way for a few.

About 25k including 1 week honeymoon. Had a very traditional wedding with all the frills and nothing sacrificed in a private villa on a Caribbean island.
