I love that about the same amount of people were above and below the average…thus proving the average :-).
We were the average cost – smack dab in the middle!

The cost is just avg guest count by avg dollars. It’s not a per plate cost.

$19,809 and $33,015 for San Diego. (With 151-165 guests)
We spent right over $20k, but only had 93 people. So I guess that puts us in the average range. Our figure does not include rings or honeymoon.

I voted that it was over based on the literal budget #s, but I didn’t notice the amount of guests it was assuming. With that adjusted, I guess we’d actually be more around average.
The site said my area was $19,629 and $32,715 total assuming 142-156 guests.
Our total was right around $19k, for a total of 70 guests.

On average, couples that live in or travel to St. Louis County, MO spend between $14,620 and $24,366 total for Market Summary. The totals above are based on the average number of guests estimated between 109 and 123. A single guest could add between $151 and $185 to the overall cost of your wedding.
We had 65 guests and spent $10k. I guess if you figure the total cost divided by the number of guests, then we came to $153 per guest. Realistically, if you subtract the things that don’t have anything to do with the guests (dress, hair and makeup, attendant gifts, rings, officiant, etc), that puts us around $130-$138/pp.

We are between 1,000 and 3,000 lower than the low end of our area, depending on what we decide on our after party. But we have about 1/3 the guests of the low amount of guests.
