Totally realistic. The budget thread is your friend: http://bestdestinati.../f9/budget-933/
A LOT of us put our full budget into that thread.

I personally paid for my wedding party... however I am definitely the exception and NOT the rule! So don't feel pressured to do so.

    My initial wedding budget was $5,000 plus our tickets/hotel. It would have definitely worked, except we got a bigger response than expected and about 70 people said they would go....then I started realizing I could get there things I could never afford here...like a DJ and a bouquet of flowers...and a 3 tiered cake...and a video...so now things are adding up... but your budget is totally reasonable.

    I didn't pay for my wedding party, but bought 2 of the girls a plane ticket for their little ones (single moms) and paid for the dresses of a couple other girls who I knew were unemployed...little things go a long way.
