So last night me and FH went over the wedding budget and the amounts so far for 135-145 people are :
reception food/rental $8000
linens/decor and time for decorator $900
invitations $200 (thank you esty!)
I know these prices are low compared to US/ontario costs but they are way higher than what most people spend here, but thanks to those shows (he is on the computer while I watch but he pays attention lol) my FH was shocked at “what good deals” I found since he is used to seeing people spending $2500 +on flowers, and $500-$1000 on invites etc so thank you brides lol 🙂

Agreed! My parents sort of knew about the wedding market because my sister got married a few years ago. But we purposely didn’t tell IL’s any costs, because they couple we let slip, they almost fainted over and basically said it was a “waste”. The boards basically had me desensitized to the costs.
And regional differences are amazing! I don’t know our exact costs, but I would say in the $16-18k range all said and done and that is considered a pretty extravagant affair in these parts!
