    I would LOVE to get married for under $10K, but Fiance wants a “big” wedding so when it’s all said and done it will be about $45-$50K

    Around 8/9k for 120 people for a Tennessee BBQ style wedding.  This includes the rehearsal dinner that was about $1500.

    $15000-$17000, although it’s crazy it was that much.  But that’s everything including rehearsal dinner, not including rings or honeymoon.

    Just under 5k for 70 guest including everthing wedding, hotel for night of, rings and honeymoon. I own a party rental business so I already have all the rental equipment, including tent, tables, chairs, silverware, dinnerware, glassware, linen, and arch which made this budget possible. I’m also doing lots of diy such as flowers, brooch bouquet, decorations, food, open bar, dance floor, photo booth, and my dj only charged $300, photographer charged $528 with engagement pictures included and cake is only $200, all being done by business owners I know. And I have bartered all deposits for my vendors with rentals for their events through out the year that we have been engaged. I also purchased my dress, flower girl dress, 2 jr bridesmaids dresses and fi tux online for only $300. Another big saving was finding bartender and server on craigslist, only charging $25/hr for both!

    I think in the end ours will run around 50,000. I’m sort of far out though so I don’t know how much the grand total will be. A lot of that will depend on guest count.

    8K including my e-ring and DH wedding band for 60 guests for a semi-formal reception. We did not pay for the venue which included the chairs for ceremony and reception, table and linens. It would have been 4K if we had to pay for the venue. We haven’t taken our honeymoon yet and I gotta get a custom wedding band made that goes on both sides of my e-ring. I’m expecting that to be about 2.5K.

    Right now, I’m budgeted at $25k for 50-55 guests in Washington DC, figure includes rings but not including honeymoon. I refuse to go over this amount…even if it means getting married in my pajamas or not eating at the reception haha.
