$12 000 – 15 000 for about 100 guests.  I think its hard to gauge peoples budgets since you never know what they are including or not.

Ideally it would be $3500 but it might jump to $5000, we’re still saving! 🙁 It all comes down to food costs and we’re still trying to find a venue that everyone can agree on. Gas isn’t cheap, so everyone’s having a gripe about that.

We’re willing to go up to around $5K, but right now we’re clocking in at an estimated $2.7K or so.  This is including all 5 rings (engagements, stand-ins, and commitment rings for both him and myself).  Does not include any kind of honeymoon, but we’re not really planning a honeymoon.  Looking at inviting maybe 40-50 people.

Our budget is $5000, realistically expecting to go up to $7000.

Through careful research, we’ve so far found a free venue (public park), officiant who does gratis work, and so many people willing to work with our budget, including our florist, DJ, and caterer.

it can be done, but it will take more time and effort!

We don’t have a budget. We are trying to keep it as reasonable as possible but considering we have over 500 guests coming, that’s turning out to be a challenge. 

We are at 85K right now, hoping to stay under 90.

our budget is $15k, not including dress/suit or honeymoon, for 35 people.

6k on food/drinks/venue alone. That is our main focus for our theme and we are willing to spend that.

$3-4k just on wedding bands.

We are not having a traditional wedding, so no cake, no flowers, no dj.

we have seperated the dress/suit budget out from the rest mainly because Fiance wants to get a bespoke suit that will be pricey, and he doesn’t want to feel bad for spending that, plus I don’t want him knowing any details about my dress till the day. Will probably be about 4k on them, with most of that for his suit.

Honeymoon is about $20k, but we are doing a trip-of-a-lifetime luxury cruise in europe. (3 weeks total).
