    Budget is 8k for 40 guests in Indiana. Not including honeymoon. We will probably honeymoon 3-4 months later due to Fi work schedule. But no idea where or cost yet.

    I think it’s close to $75K so far for my wedding in downtown Washington, DC for about 125 people (my parents are paying). The honeymoon my fiance are paying for and it’ll be about $10K for 2 weeks in Hawaii.

    Our original budget was $15000 including the honeymoon. mainly because FH and I were planning on paying for everything ourselves. But both our parents were generous enough to contribute, so we decided to raise the budget. So after everything is said and done, we are looking at about $32-35 thousand. Yikes!

    mrskirk:  I’m in eastern Canada. Our wedding was about $13,000 when all was said and done. We stayed pretty much on budget. Budget was originally budgeted at 10,000 but I upped it not long after that lol. We are going on our honeymoon 2 weeks from today (Squee!!) and are going to California. We;re probably going to spend $2000-2500 on that. We used points for the flights and are getting about half our hotels covered with points as well.

    mrskirk:  My wedding budget is $55k for 115 guests, it will go up if more people RSVP. It would be higher if I wasn’t “cheaping out” by getting a DJ instead of a band and forgoing some extras like limo transportation. This budget includes my wedding band (FI’s wedding band is being gifted by my parents) and rehearsal/welcome dinner.

    For honeymoon, I’m probably budgeting $10k, so total $65k. Much more if I include my e-ring…

    Our buget right now is $4500 and that does not include our honeymoon. Right now, until I get a final number from our caterer, it might be closer to $5000 that we spend. We are saving money by not having a sit-down dinner reception so no DJ or lots of money spent on food. We also saved money by using a photographer who is also a friend. Since we aren’t having a “traditional” reception, we are only paying for ceremony and formal pictures. Also, I’m DIYing and thrifting alot! One great thing I found was a local event planner who holds an annual flea market for brides – you can buy the stuff they used and save a ton of money. It’s the only ‘bridal show’ type event I’m going to before my wedding since I don’t need many vendors. There will be some vendors there who do rentals that I can talk to. (I’m in Western MA)

    mrskirk:  We will be having 150-175 guest in Chicago, IL.  We think we can fit everything in at $52K.  We will have a mini-moon cruise (we take a Halloween cruise every year so this just works out) and then go to Paris in the spring.  My FH thinks mid-late October will be a bit too cold so we pushed Paris off till Spring, but still want to get away after gettig married.

    Our total budget including honeymoon is $30k.  We’re from Melbourne, Aus and are planning on having our honeymoon in Hawaii so we’re budgeting 10K for that.  We’re having approx 150 people at our wedding.  We’ve gone over budget in a few areas like the DJ but are trying to cut back expenses by DIYing where possible.

    We’re planning on doing a small wedding at about $10K and a splurge on big honeymoon to Norway, Sweden and Finland for 3.5 weeks, so that’ll cost around $20K as we’ll be flying from Australia.
