    Even after reading the bee and realizing that many people are WAY more in to weddings than we are, I have trouble understanding where 20K could possibly be spent.

    @nmsoonerbride: I’m spending 20k on food and alcohol alone. Trust me it is very easy 🙂

    Wowwwww. I just dont have that kind of cash! We set a limit at $10,000, but its reaching more like $15,000. This is for almost 300 people. I am doing alot of DIY projects to say the least.

    I don’t think it would be hard to spend 20K, in fact, I think with larger guest lists it would be hard to stay UNDER 20K, especially in a city!!

    We also spent $20k on just food and booze for 145 people.  And that was with the pff season 20% discount!

    Our wedding is costing a total of about $6,000 including food for 100-130 people.  We are having a cash bar, serving heavy appetizers, using minimal decorations due to beautiful venues.  This is where the bulk of the money was spent

    Ceremony venue- $1280

    Food- $2000

    Hair & Makeup for Bride and BMs- $350

    DJ- $250

    Photographer- $580

    We’re debating the budget now. Hoping our meeting with our wedding planners tomorrow can help us land in a neighborhood!

    @TinyTina:  excellent point!  This Oklahoma City girl can’t even wrap her head around what NYC prices must be….

    And I hope I didn’t sound judgemental.  I didn’t mean it that way.  Just shocked at how freaking expensive everything is.

    I’m wondering about the 40K and 50K Bees that responded to the poll.  I realize that it’s possible, what I’m wondering is if those bees are paying for it themselves or if their families are paying. 

    In my wildest dreams would I have 50K of disposable cash! *jealous*
