Mine is $10k for about 65-70 people. Right now, we have about $1100 that isn’t already budgeted somewhere.

We’re looking at about 35K for 150 people, that’s including the honeymoon… I’m hoping to come in under that, but we’ll see.

Ours is 8K for the reception site, catering, invitations and photography for about 150 people (what my Fiance and I are paying for). Flowers, DJ, drinks, favors, and cake will tentatively be contributed by family. (Both of our parents are divorced so they are spread out). I also paid for my dress and I will pay for alterations and our wedding rings. My Fiance is going to plan a little trip to the beach for a few days after (that’s where we got engaged). Our groom’s tux rental is free. I’m sure there will end up being some extra little things like decorations, unity candle, accessories, but we’re trying to be pretty frugal and not spend any more than we can afford.

I had no idea how expensive these things were!  My parents have always told me not to worry about it, and that they would take care of it.  Honestly though, I’d rather have a small budget $5k wedding and let them take care of the down payment on our first house.  And considering that I’m not sure if I know 100 people, that might just be feasible. 

And if push comes to shove, maybe my SO will get his dream come true of having a pot luck wedding!  hehe.  Only kidding….sort of.

… I don’t have a budget, but I will be absolutely FURIOUS with myself if I go over 30k (not including honeymoon).

Originally was 12K for about 150 (inviting 180) and that was what my parents were giving. We have decided to pay out of pocket to make the budget 20K not including honeymoon/rings and we are hoping to keep it right around 18K for 115 (inviting 150). I got my dream location out of it though! 🙂 Not too bad for my dream wedding considering downtown Charleston can be pricey. Well in my terms of pricey because I sure as heck can’t compete with those 55K, 60K budgets! Lucky girls! 😉

Our budget is $25k for about 170 people. Hopefully we can keep it as low as possible!

It’s amazing how prices can vary between large cities and more rural areas.  I thought Chicago was bad – but I think it would be even more expensive in LA or NYC!

our budget is 10,000 including rings, dress, honeymoon. guest list is 40 people.

i was a fan of ten thousand and only wedding blog and am determined to do it!
for the honeymoon, we’re conjoining it with my family’s yearly japan trip so that i can introduce the boy to my family. all we really have to pay for is the food because 1) my mom is giving us her mileage as a wedding gift and 2) we’re hopping from relative to relative for lodging.

budget: 25K for 200 people, and it is very hard not to go over.

We are paying for the entire thing ourselves, so it cannot go beyond 25K. Sometimes, I think about this amount of money, and wish I can use it for a down payment in a house….oh well, you only get marry once!
