    Well it doesn’t have my county. This is a neighboring area: 

    On average, couples that live in or travel to Orange township: Delaware County, OH spend between $16,606 and $27,676 total for Market Summary

    We came in just barely under the low end.

    On average, couples that live in or travel to Houston, TX spend between $18,862 and $31,436 total for Market Summary

    The totals above are based on the average number of guests estimated between 150 and 164. A single guest could add between $144 and $176 to the overall cost of your wedding.

    I’m coming in a little over…about 5k if you take into account the number of guests we are having (200-250 guests).

    They didn’t have anything for my zip code but for the neighboring city, on average, couples that live in or travel to Stone Mountain, GA spend between $17,327 and $28,879 based on 131 and 145 guests.

    My budget without the honeymoon (and other misc that aren’t in most people’s budget) is ~$17k for 235 people which is under the average.

    This is what it said for me…

    “On average, couples that live in or travel to East Goshen township: Chester County, PA spend between $21,930 and $36,550 total for Market Summary

    The totals above are based on the average number of guests estimated between 169 and 183. A single guest could add between $150 and $183 to the overall cost of your wedding.”

    I can definitely see why it is that high in my area but there was no way in hell I could afford that.  My budget was 10k and I spent 11k.  I think I did a really good job at keeping it as low as I did.  Oh, I had 130 guests and the cost per guest was about $100 and that included everything not just food.

    so fun!

    On average, couples that live in or travel to Charlotte, NC spend between $18,636 and $31,060 total for Market Summary

    The totals above are based on the average number of guests estimated between 145 and 159. A single guest could add between $147 and $180 to the overall cost of your wedding.

     I spent just around 18k so im on the low end. about $100/guest with 120 guests.

    On average, couples that live in or travel to New York, NY spend between $21,885 and $36,475 total for Market Summary

    The totals above are based on the average number of guests estimated between 139 and 153. A single guest could add between $180 and $220 to the overall cost of your wedding

    That doesn’t really make sense though, because if a single guest can add $180, how can 139-153 guests cost so little?

    Anyway, we were way above the average, I guess!

    We’re right in the middle of the average range for Atlanta.  We’ll probably have about 150 guests.

    We’ll be spending less than half of what they consider to be the “low” end for my area.

    @hilsy85: I don’t live in NYC but those numbers that the site gave seem off.   I would think having a wedding in NYC would be super expensive.  The numbers the site gave is about what my city is.  That doesn’t make sense.

    “On average, couples spend between $26,759 and $44,598 total. The totals above are based on the average number of guests estimated between 255 and 269. A single guest could add between $123 and $150 to the overall cost of your wedding.”

    From what I’ve heard and from what our friends have done in their own weddings, these are lower numbers than I was actually expecting!! We are just under this budget at $25k for 120 people.

    We’re over. Granted we’re paying for a FL wedding with NYC salaries so I don’t feel so terrible.
