Not including rings, my dress or honeymoon

1) Number of guests? 65-75

2) Location: Texas

3) Cost?  ~ $18,000.00 I’m fortunate in that I work in the industry so my vendors have given me amazing discounts for which I am very, very grateful. Other wise, this wedding would have been $25,000.

I’ll do our first wedding and now the vow renewal we’re planning that will be about 7 years after the first.

First time~

1. 7 including us!

2. Las Vegas

3. 11k…our ceremony, flowers, and hotel cost about 2k all together and we got to keep the rest as a gift from my parents.

Vow renewal~

1. 30-50…probably around 40

2. Seaside, Florida

3. 20-25k

That is as of right now, but we’re twenty months out and includes my dress, venue rentals, photographer, flowers, dj, welcome cocktail party, reception food and bar, invitations, gift bags, beach chair rental for the weekend, morning after brunch, cottage rental for the week. We’re planning on providing all food and drinks for the whole weekend for the whole group, so it might be more.

Should have done this the first time when my parents were paying! 😉 Seaside is more expensive because they have a list of people you have to use and they are also just an expensive place to rent.

1.  120

2.  Berkeley, CA

3. Just under $20k (this includes a lot of hotel rooms for various guests and attendants).

Many thanks to my parents, as it would’ve been a potluck in a park if we’d been footing the bill (that actually sounds lovely).

1. About 200

2. SE Michigan

3. Right now we’re at around 15,000 without honeymoon and rings, I’m hoping that when everything is said and done, we can keep it under 20K — we’re also doing 2 receptions, one bigger american reception and a smaller (100ish) chinese banquet reception to satisfy my mother’s need for tradition.
