    I think mine is going to work out around 20k approx depending on where we stay (ceremony and reception venue are not in a resort so we will stay somewhere different) our flights are only a few hundred dollars as we live in mexico.

     

    to be fair i have around 100 guests which seems a lot bigger than most weddings on here! hard to calculate as there seem to be so many extras that need to be included!!

      Our wedding budget is about $20,000, which includes our flights, hotel, and honeymoon/vacation for two weeks. We're also paying for a private catamaran cruise as our gift to our guests (rather than doing OOT bags). We have about 50+ guests.

        We returned this week from our wedding in the Dominican Republic... Here is an 'estimate' of what our wedding expenses were..... (we are also having a reception at home, budgeting around $10,000 for that but hoping it's under!)

        We had 32 people total (including bride and groom)

        total wedding costs (at the Jellyfish Restaurant): approx $5,700 (this included flowers, food, open bar, fire dancers, decorations/set up, dj and an outside dancefloor area in the sand)

        total travel costs for bride and groom (with travel insurance @ Majestic Elegance)  approx $3,300 for one week (i think, i could be off on this)

        dress, shoes, earrings, hairflower (DIY), alterations approx $850

        suit and alterations approx $250

        extras such as OOT bags, programs, signs $250

        total approx $10,350

        does not include honeymoon which we *hope* to take later this year, although a week in Punta Cana was nice :)

        There were a few things I overlooked that ended up costing us a little more and our group was not too big, which helped with the budget (we invited only immediate family and close friend s and many invited were not able to attend)

          We are estimating between $15,000-$17,000. We will have about 55 people. Reception at the resort. This also includes our extra week at the Excellence Punta Cana for our honeymoon:)
