    Our wedding is £8K (around $12K in USD) for a city wedding in London that’s pretty low budget and we’re DIY-ing the heck out of it. Personally I think anyone who can do a wedding under $5K are amazing and I wish I knew how you did it!

    Wow, I’m jealous of the anything under 10k or even 20k for that matter. I put over 10k, because ours is 30k and we’re paying for it all ourselves!! I don’t know if it’s just our location or family/friend tradition, but typically I’d say we’re on the average to low end of the budget scale amoung our peers.

    I agree, per person and location have a lot to do with it. For downtown Chicago & our guest list (175 ish) I’d call $10,000 verrry much budget. In fact, I’d call it near impossible.

    In my personal opinion, $10K or under is “low-budget” (though I still think $10K is expensive). However, I know that the average wedding is now around $35K, so…anything under $20K would be considered “low budget”, I suppose.

    I agree with Jenniphyr, anything under 10k is considered to be low budget, which is funny cause i know its such a huge day to us, but come on, its one day! thats one hell of a sweet down payment on a house (35k)

    Well my low is 2k to 4K but you better believe I don’t want to go over 3k matter of fact….I would love to stay under 2k lol.  I think it all depends on that individual, because I have been to nice event weddings and it was not even 1k.

    But weddings are expensive depending on what people want, like and guest count!

    I don’t consider my wedding low budget though I consider it on the lower side for our area (Bay Area).  I’d say anything under $10k is low budget.  Didn’t vote because that isn’t my budget. 

    And PirateJenn that’s not anywhere near a down payment on a house for where I live/want to get a house.
