South Western Ontario (Canada)
Sunday afternoon wedding, private golf course
$995 rental fee (Includes tables, chairs, table cloth, your choice of linen napkin colour, plus use of entire venue for the whole day)
$24.95 for brunch buffet, $34.95 for deluxe brunch buffet (Roast beef au jus, crepes, omelette station Etc., deluxe includes crab cakes, stuff like that)
$21.00 for 3 course plated lunch (Stuffed chicken), and goes up from there
They make their $$$$ on the booze- wine starts at $26 a bottle for the cheap stuff xD
Also this is a SUPER nice venue, but for some reason goes way less than many in the area (I used to work here, so the rental fee is being waived for me. AMazing food and gorgeous views)

$85 per head for food (buffet), and beverages (soft drink, beer, wine, coffee and tea). It is normally $100 per head but they gave us a 15% discount. There is no venue fee. We have use of the entire venue for 7hours and have a back up option ready for the ceremony incase it rains. I am in Melb, Aus.

In NJ I had a rare find of an affordable venue. It is $85 per person including open bar and taxes and gratuity! I’m looking at 150-170 guests so ballpark of $14,000.00

110 guests, New England, private residence (so venue costs are all the rentals brought in)
$8,300 – rentals & associated costs (including delivery & tax)
$8,900 – food & beverage (including gratuities and tax)
ETA: the “venue” cost doesn’t include decor. It’s only for tent, dance floor, tables, chairs, flatware, plates/glasses, linens, lighting, toilets, heater, tent side-walls, and bar as well as associated costs of little things like having to move a small tree, scoping the ground to make sure there are no underground utilities where tent stakes will go, etc.

Our wedding is at a beach resort in Traverse City, Michigan. The venue cost us $2800, that includes tables, chairs, use of mikes etc for ceremony shuttle to extra parking, and set up etc.
The resort does not cater, so we brought in an outside person and the total there is going to be about $2600 for 120 people. That includes appetizers for cocktail hour, a full buffet meal, and dessert.

Ceremony/Church: $1500 + priest stipened of $200
(if we had got married in our parish it would have been free but it was not pretty, there was no center aisle & we LOVED the downtown Catholic church as it is beautiful)
Reception (aka food/drink): about $18,000
was $70/$74 per person for catering (no venue charge because of catering, that’s how most are in my area). This also included several appetizers during cocktail hour, 2 bottles of champagne on every table, open bar for 4 hours before switching to an import beer and house wines. We had 160 people (+ 6 vendors)
