    Ours was right above $25,000 for 210 guests with full open bar all night in Milwaukee, WI. Any other variables I should add?

    • Wedding: May 2013 - Walt Disney World

    Our wedding was probably just over $30,000 (haven’t calculated all the costs yet, roughly at $25,000 for all wedding day and rehearsal events).  We were married at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion in Orlando, Florida and had our wedding reception at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (next door to wedding pavilion).  We had around 75 guests, buffet dinner, 3-tier wedding cake (with additional sheet cake in the kitchen), photographer, videographer, photo booth, video chatterbox, open bar; floral and decor were provided by Disney but we rented chiavari chairs, charger plates, and uplighting from an outside company.  DJ package was $1500.  Our bridal party was 4 BM/4 GM/1 Flower Girl.

    @HappinessIsInDaisies:  $35k at the current exchange rate if you include the rings, or $30k if you don’t.

    That’s for 59 for the day, and around 100 for the evening, and doesn’t include a fully-open bar.

    A little over 15k for 160ish guests, including everything but the honeymoon and e-ring – only wine and beer, but also a welcome dinner for everyone the night before.

    Just under $12k for 50 guests for welcome dinner (hosted beer/wine only), ceremony and reception (50 guests, cocktail hour & full open bar) and thank you brunch (hosted mimosas, sangria, etc).  I think the actual wedding cost just under $10k (tax, gratuity, rings, etc), but our moms helped with the welcome dinner and the brunch.

    @HappinessIsInDaisies:  Our wedding is costing us over $40K. A lot of people would say its foolish because it can be put towards a house, but this is something we both wanted and we had a lot of help from my mom. She is paying for the bulk of it which is the catering hall. We paid for everything else, DJ, Florist, Photographer/Videographer/WEdding dress/Tuxedo etc.
