3500, excluding honeymoon (after immigration costs – more than our wedding! – we may postpone honeymoon)

@Penelopeee:  I know. I almost feel ridiculous even thinking about our budget for such a small wedding. We wanted to keep it small so we could go all out on the details though :-/

$6,500 for our 100 person wedding.

I think it turned out really nice, but if I had about 1-2k more, I could have made it amazing.

I cant confirm the exact budget because after some point we just stopped counting, but we probably hit $55,000 – $60,000, after ring and honeymoon probably $70,000-$75,000.

We had a 190 person wedding.

I’m happy to say 10k in NYC. Ceremony and reception at a Michelin star restaurant. <40 guests.  Does not include rings or honeymoon, but does include louboutins haha

about 23000, including everything (honeymoon, rehearsal dinner, dress, wedding bands) except the Engagement Ring itself. We started at 21,000, it dropped down to about 18000 when we realized we overestimated how many RSVPs would we get from our out-of-country relatives, and then jumped back up again on last-minute spending and unforeseen expenses. Worth it, though.

we are spending close to $50k including honeymoon. Just the thought of that sum makes me cringe.

Around 35k not including rings or honeymoon.  I still have to do photography, paper goods, and florals.  My original budget was 27k which is where I’m at now- but my dad who is very generously paying only asked to keep it under 50k.  Here’s to hoping it should be a blast?!
