    hoping for around 6-7k.  I’m just starting to put all my deposits down, so i’m being stressed by budget right now.

    i think all in all its around 65,000 (thats for everything except rehearsal dinner which my Future Mother-In-Law is hosting).That doesnt include honeymoon but we probably wont have time to go on a honeymoon after the wedding anyways, so i guess we have awhile to think about that.

    We were shooting for 10K, and will probably come in about $12K. If you include the dress, rings, gifts, every crafting supply, rehearsal dinner and hair/makeup, we will probably come in about $16K.


    ETA: Left out some details… that projection is for about 125 people for a peak-season evening ceremony and dinner/dancing reception with what is shaping up to be epic food. So actually, I think we’re making out pretty well, in terms of bang for our buck.

    With honeymoon, our 270 person wedding cost us $37K :-/. REALLY over budget. But worth every penny..and we paid for everything cash upfront, right away. So no debt!

    I don’t consider honeymoon part of the wedding budget at all. I don’t really get including it…but our Honeymoon budget is 3k.

    For the wedding, we were shooting for 12k; it looks like we’ll be about 14. Not too too terribly off.

    $35,000, including honeymoon but excluding rings (they were heirlooms).  It will be a Sunday morning brunch for 150 people.  We will be paying for it entirely by ourselves.

    Ugh, I hate voting in the 36-50k range. We ended up around 37k for 100 people (not including our honeymoon).

    As determined by my parents, who are paying for everything: shooting for $35,000, but will likely stretch to over $40k (but not too far over)

    ETA: including honeymoon (at least part of it), excluding rings.  Possibly including morning-after brunch.

    It was about 11-12k (1k just for rings) but ended up being about 14k. Which I was more than okay with because I got a full time job and added a few extra perks. That doesn’t include the honeymoon, because we’re going next month!
