    Oo you should do a poll for this. I dont’ really know the exact cost, I feel like mine is higher bc of living where I do, but I know it was probably between $100-$110 per person.

    Does this include dress, photography, video, entertainment, wedding bands etc? My entire wedding budget was $35K for 60 guests. Most of the big items are fixed regardless of headcount, so per guest cost can be misleading when everything is added up.

    FOr all things guest related (invites, food, drinks, chairs, tables, favors, cake, entertainment) I spent about $100 per guest. 

    If I divide the entire total by my guest count, it was about $250 per guest, but that includes venue, dress, rings, flowers & decor, hotel rooms for the wedding party, hair & makeup, etc..

    My total wedding budget (venue rental, food, alcohol, my dress, photography, etc) divided by my number of guests is about $100 per person.

    Holy crap just divided what we spent TOTAL by the number of guests…that is insanity!! Are you including things like the dress, the officiant, the band, etc?

    We spent a total of ~$17,000 for our wedding of 148 guests – so just about $115 per person when all is said and done… but that includes everything, even our attire, dj, etc. Not too bad, but still crazy when I look at the grand total.

    Oops I voted wrong (divided the entire budget by 100). I’m somewhere in the 230-240 range (Food, Alcohol, DJ, Invites, Save-The-Date Cards, Photobooth, Out of Town Bags, Favors, Escort Cards)

    I also voted based on total budget divided by number of guests = $340 which is really scary.
