Since our wedding was so small, we had a really nice dinner on our wedding night and we allowed our guests to order whatever they wanted off the menu, including unlimited drinks (which BTW ended up costing us double the amount of the actual food, lol) But we kept the ceremony pretty simple, since we were married on the beach.

We opted to have our reception at a location off the resort, and it actually worked out to be cheaper that way. The resort was going to charge us for an open bar and it was included in the price off resort.

In terms of the wedding costs, some resorts have free wedding packages and only require you to pay a small fee for teh legalities. You can usually have a free reception at the buffet restaurant, but most resorts will charge you extra if you have a reception in one of the a-la-carte restaurants.
I would think you can have a very nice wedding for 5000-6000$ with all the basics (i.e. 3000$ for trips, leaving 2000$ for photos, dress/suit, rings and the actual ceremony costs). Of course you can easily spend 3-4 times that much if you want to get a really good photographer, expensive dress, elaborate reception, etc etc. I splurged on a lot of stuff but saved money on others (i.e. I brought a photographer with me and got a good videographer for 2 hours, both of those coming to 3000$ total, but on the other hand, I didn't spend a penny on my reception. I also splurged a little on clothes and decorations). All in all I spent 12 000$
