About $8000 for 67 people, this included our clothing as well as the whole bridal parties clothing the invites. flowers and favours and the reception dinner. We had a destination wedding though so this made it alot cheaper. If we had had it in our hometown we would have had alot more guests and the cost for the wedding would have probably been close to $50,000!!!

Still up in the air due to guest count, but $22-23k for 85-100 people. HOPEFULLY!! I invited 130 (including children) and I’d love to have no more than 100.
Ugh, if all 130 showed up it would drive it up to almost $25k
This includes rings, rehearsal dinner, my boudoir photos, and my air/hotel for a bachelorette trip to Vegas.
Only thing not included is a honeymoon.

My elopement cost less than $5,000 even with the honeymoon. We married at a luxury resort in the fall. The accomodations were expensive but worth it.
My vow renewal will cost close to $6,500. We will be including many wedding elements partly for my parents who were hurt when we eloped. Since my husband and I prefer small gatherings, we will book a chapel for less than 30 guests. The packages include photography, food (including beautifully decorated cake), officiants and decorations with upgrades allowed at an extra cost. We are adding some upgrades to a cocktail and dinner reception package.
Before my husband and I decided to elope, we were going to spend $30,000 on a family wedding. I felt sick when I thought of blowing that much on one day. We would have just used the chapel when we got married, but my mother was belligerent and dramatic about me having a small wedding. She likes to show off, so she was trying to force a lavish affair planned to HER liking, no matter how many times my husband and I tried to reason with her.
