Total, not just for dinner/drinks.
So the entire cost of your marriage minus the cost of your RINGS, and HONEYMOON.
We’re looking to spend around $13,000 total on our wedding, [not counting rings or honeymoon], and we’re having around 60 guests.
This comes to about $216.00 a person.
Let’s see how much everyone spent/is spending, should be interesting to see the numbers!

We spent about a total of $23,000 if I minus the honeymoon and rings, it would be $161 per person for 116 guests.

@Nic01: Oh, well I was actually surprised mine was only $216! That’s providing we don’t overspend, which I doubt we will. I pretty much overestimated how much we’d spend on everything.

Around $380/pp(22 guests)
However, we are having a destination wedding and are paying for 3 parents as well as ourselves and then about $4500 for the wedding itself once there. It’s the cost of the extra people that really jacks our cost up. Based on the wedding alone without the travel its about $204

50k with 50ppl so right now about 1k…but that’s wayyy over simplifying it.

I can’t remember the exact cost but we had about 70 guests and spent about $40+k. That’s at least $571/person. The unfortunate part of having a small wedding is that some costs don’t go down. For example, the venue fee, the DJ fee and the photography fee are still the same whether you have 10 guests or 300 guests.

Right now we are probably sitting around $150 I’d say with what we have planned. That will of course depend on guest count.
