I don’t think it’s as much a matter of how much you “should” spend as it is a matter of how much you can comfortably afford to spend and want to spend. We chose to have a small wedding because that was what we wanted, and will be doing a huge 1st anniversary party to celebrate with all of those who were not invited to the small wedding (as well as the wedding guests, too!). Since it’s a casual “party” and not a formal “wedding”, we’ll be skipping many of the high end things that we had for the wedding. I’ve already priced it out, and it looks like we should be able to have a rockin’ bash for 150 people for $4000-$5000. So I am putting money aside now, and probably won’t start real planning until 3ish months ahead of time.
