We are at $60k for 150 guests. Our honeymoon is included in the budget too.

Ours is between 7k-8k for 50 guests and it is really really close.

I think we are trying for under $5k for about 170 guests.  Future Mother-In-Law is paying for the catering so that will help.

I’m aiming for roughly 7.5K for about 150 guests, honeymoon not included (I only have a rough idea of that cost, but I’d like to splurge on a two week trip to Ireland). Our parents aren’t in any position to help us financially, so we’ll probably be paying for everything from our own pockets.

Ours was $55k for 220 guests (invited 320 though!)  We saved money by people not being able to come and cutting back on other things too.  I ended up coming in right around $50k (not including honeymoon or rings)

We are spending around $6,000 for 200 guests.  It has been pretty easy so far.  We live in a fairly small area which helps with the budget.  FI’s parents paid the ceremony rental ($650) and my mom bought my dress ($1,200) so we are pretty good.  They are also paying alcohol, which DEFINITELY helps.

Our budget is 5k for 250 guests. We have been proactive about asking our friends with talents to give that to us as our gift. For instance, we have gotten our photography, cake, videography, and a condo for our honeymoon all as gifts! My parents purchased my dress. Other than that, we are printing our invites ourselves. It looks like we are going to stay close to budget!

Our budget is 8k for our Destination Wedding…. we’re probably going to go a little over… but we won’t go into debt for the wedding.

Our budget started out at 5K, if we could get away with it for 50 people. I have now pushed it out to 7K. I am still hoping for closer to 5K, but we want to splurge a little. I am doing a ton of DIY, and that is helping, but there are just some things that will push it above our original budget. I am meeting with the planner on Friday to see where we are at, so we shall see.

Our budget is $10k for 190 people (rings included). Though that’s not including the honeymoon. We are registering online with a honeymoon registry rather than for home goods since we already have a bunch of stuff…so hopefully that will cover the entire cost of the honeymoon! Right now I am slightly doubtful we’ll make it but if kb112022 can do it, then so can I!
