    Ugh, I was just looking over budget stuff today and we're probably going to be at $17,000. But I was reading an article earlier this week about the "average" cost of a wedding in the U.S. today, and it quoted $26,000 ~ so I guess I'm still $9,000 under.......................right??

      It's really going to depend on how many people actually show up because the big money all lies in our catering and beverage numbers.  Anyway at most our wedding will not go over $10,000 either way.

        Interesting thread.  We are just starting our budget and I don't want to go over $10000 for everything...EVERYTHING!

            I was trying desperately to do it for $10,000...well, that is sooo not happening.  It's still really early on for us, but it's looking like we're going have around 100 guests (twice as many as I originally thought).  Based on that, it's going to be about $30,000 excluding travel and rings.  And my dress was well under $1k.  That's including a nice champagne brunch the day after the wedding - if we leave that out more like $24k.  I have a really detailed budget spreadsheet and I still don't understand how it's possibly that much!  Ugh.  But about half of that is food/alcohol, as we really wanted a nice dinner.  I guess you only do this once, right?

              Before I started planning I wanted to stay around $10,000 until I realized the cost of everything. Now I'm hoping to keep it under $18,000. This includes everything, attire, reception cost, decorations, photographer our 2 week stay at the resort.

                Its crazy how all this wedding stuff adds up. Ours is probably 12-15k.  Out that amount,6 is more photo and video! Crazy, but at the end of that day, thats all you have left to look at.

                  It's true it adds up but EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING depends on the amount of guests you are going to have attend.  There are set costs too, but we plan to pour most of budget into the food and drink part.  That is more than half the budget and that number will vary depending on how many guests we have coming. We chose to keep this small for a reason. And to me, small is 20 or 30 people.
