1) ~80 guests

2) Columbia, MO

3) We budgeted 5k, but it’s looking more like 6-7k… and we are footing the entire bill and then some ourselves.

I’m super jealous of some of you budgets… our figure doesn’t inclue a honeymoon! (Which we probably won’t get :()

1. 225 invited, 170-200 will probably make it

2. My dad’s farm in western Colorado

3. $10,000 – does not include rings (they weren’t included because my parents are paying and they’re something we wanted to buy ourselves), rehearsal dinner (in-laws will be taking care of that) or honeymoon (no idea what we’ll be doing at this point).  It’s looking like we’re pretty much going to hit it on the head so long as there aren’t too many unexpected last minute expenses.

1.55 guests

 

2. Hotel Waldorf Astoria in New York City

 

3. budget 15,000 more like $20000 including miscellaneous and things are adding up and including honymoon

 

all paid by myself, no debt, no help from parents-theyre not wealthy; he’s getting the rings and taking care of his family’s hotels, he will take care of the wedding in England; I’m saving tons by DIY projects, bargaining as hard as possible and asking personal favors; I want it to be special on the other hand I dont want to go wild and spend all my life savings, when it’s your own money you appreciate every cent you spend; no small feat in NYC, I still something left for house down payment and my sister’s down payment because I’m frugal

 

a bit depressing seeing how far your buck goes in other places, but aw, well, I chose to live in NYC, the price I have to pay, I dont regret it

1.) 70 Guests

2.) Western Colorado

3.) 15k (this is still an approximation, but I’m fairly certain we’ll be landing close to this number, which was about 2k over our original budget … I was picky about the photography :P)

Holy Monkeys. This is really interesting. Does anyone know if MissSauce is around still? I’d love to hear the updated readings, especially with the huge "dip" in the economy.

@Kara321 Looks like we’ll have a similar wedding! I am getting married in September 2 hours from Billings for around the same cost. 

  1. 130 invited, 95 prob. coming
  2. Northern Wyoming
  3. $45-$50,000
  4. OUCH. Thanks all parents! All 3 sets of you!

It’s reassuring to see that some of you were able to pull off a wedding for only a few thousand. Some days I think I’m crazy for trying it.

1) 200ish (I have a huge family)

2) Toledo, OH

3) I’m not positive yet, but our budget for the wedding (including ceremony, dress, rings, reception, everything), honeymoon, AND our first month in our new place is somewhere between $4500 and $5000 (I work full-time in ministry and my fiance is an assistant manager at a gas station, and we only have six months to plan and save, so we’re trying to make it simple)

We’re getting married outdoors at a metropark (only $50 for the location!) in the evening and just having cake and desserts at the reception. I’ve been bargain hunting for a dress (mostly online so far) and my bridesmaids are getting their own dresses. We’re not sure about the reception location yet; possibly outdoors at the park, too (though that’s risky because of weather) or a local church gym. A friend is doing our photos and some more friends are doing music. I think another friend might be doing flowers for us, too, and we’re hoping to find another friend to make the cake (it helps to know a lot of generous and talented people :-D)
