Hotel Rooms: $960
Music: $1400 (hoping to for less!)
Reception Food: $4220
Cake: $750 (hopefully less if I can bring in cupcakes!)
Coordinator Fee: $600
Photography & Video: $1500
So that's $15,730 but I have a feeling after it's all said and done it'll be more like 20K... I can't remember everything in the budget right now... yikes! Especially since there's no dress/gifts table decorations... etc. etc. in there!
Is anyone else feeling a little sick right now (Liza, I know you are!)

Janet is totally right, as long as your guest list is small and you consider an All-Inclusive I think you can do it. Just decide what's important to you and spend your money on those things... cut from the rest.
My plan was very much the same and I think if we had been able to do it (without before mentioned parental intervention) for about 11K for 50 people. So it can be done! The problem is not adding in the extras later!

OK, I just realized that I posted three responses in a row... probably could have combined those into one! Sorrrrrrrrrrry!
