    I think anything under $5000 is small budget.  Where I live you can have a super nice and lavish wedding with all the bells and whistles for $10.000.  Also my budget is less than $5000 (wanting to keep it closer to $4000).  It is a tight budget but still possible.  It’s actually affording me a nice wedding (with a few DIY aspects thrown in).

    I think were going to come in around $15,000 for everything which is not bad around here. The reception and catering alone is costing us $10,000 for 300 people. Im going to be doing a lot of DIY projects and having a friend do the photography to keep everything else below $5,000

    The average amongst my friends is 30k+. But we live in NYC where venues themselves can be  $150/pp and waay up.

    I think it definitely depends on the number of people you want to invite! Both Fiance and I have large families, and we want to include all our friends, so our guest list is currently 215-ish. For my wedding in San Diego where approximately 175 will come, I’d say low-budget is around 5k not including rings or honeymoon.

    We’re going to wind up at about 2k for our beach wedding. Works for me!

    From the poll results, I don’t think I understand the question. It seemed that the OP was asking what others “think” is “low budget.” But “over $10,000” cannot be low budget when there is no cap for the “over.”
