Whew, this will turn into an interesting question.  I think a lot also depends on how old the couple is, but I’ll be curious to see the responses!

 

1) 150ish

2) Plymouth, MI (metro-Detroit area)

3) $10,000

 

We’ll be just out of college, so not that much extra money around to spend!

My parents offered us a budget of $25,000 but anything we don’t spend we get to keep, so I’m on an extra cost cutting campagin right now. If we stay on the track we have planned it will be

1) 175ish

2) New Braunfels, TX (between Austin and San Antonio)

3) $17,000 approximate

1) 5

 

2) vegas (we eloped)

 

3) about $3000, including all wedding costs, 4 nights at mandalay bay, food, drink, gambling and airfare.

 

our original plan was for about $15,000 for a 100-150 guest wedding in north suburban indianapolis, but we had to give that idea up due to family (religious) drama. 🙁

My mom offered us a budget of $45,000 (holy crap!) but I highly doubt we’ll use it all. Her words were "Just because you HAVE it doesn’t mean you have to SPEND it."

 1.) 200ish

2.) Cleveland, OH

3.) $30,000ish I hope…maybe less? We’re in the early planning stages.

1- 84

2. Fairfax, Virignia, Suburb of Washington DC

3. $9,200-for everyting, including rings, dress, food, photography, etc.

 

We had a cocktail recpetion in the afternoon and only served wine and beer. That really helped keep our cost down.

1. About 30 have booked plane tickets or have said they want to attend so far…but we haven’t sent invitations yet.

2. Grand Cayman Island

3. Budget of $25K (this includes paying for our bridal party’s airfare, a welcome party on the beach, and a group snorkel trip) — but I’m guessing we’ll end up closer to $30K.

preliminary w/o rehearsal dinner, rings or honeymoon:

1) 100 (inviting 150-200 hopefully, the list is growing!, but we expect low acceptance rate from older relatives that live far away)

2) outside Austin, TX

3) 15K   surprisingly, I have found this # hard to stick, to, but we are footing more than 1/2 of that ourselves, and only 6.5 mo engagement, YIPES

 I look forward to what others post..maybe some with similar areas/budget can help each other out!  Hiya ErinSea  😀
