How Much Was Your Wedding?

Recommended Posts

My budget is around 12k. This is including every last thing that had to do with the wedding... I actually haven't kept that great of track, but we're definitely within the budget. Our wedding and travel accommodations and photography etc were around $6500 the rest was dress, suits, and décor etc!

I think it might be important if people also mention how many guests will be attending.

 

Like a $12k wedding for 10 people or $12k wedding for 100 people :)

 

Mine was $12k without the dress but including travel for bride and groom.  we had almost 60 people.

 

This cost did not include my dress.

Thank you everyone~ I'm trying to see the difference in cost in having destination wedding and one at home! I live in New York!

 

& Tammy thanks for letting me know about how many ppl came to yours I guess a destination wedding is much cheaper than having an event at home!!

You can do a destination wedding with a range of budgets. 

 

I live in DC (so wedding price points are similar to NYC). We are doing a large wedding, 75 people, with  A LOT of extras that most people don't do for a DW, and it's still costing us about half of what we would have spent in DC, for 3 days worth of events.

 

My wedding is in a month, so I don't have my final tally in yet on cost.

 

There are a lot of resorts that give perks & freebies to brides depending on how many guests you have.

 

For example, because of the size of our wedding, we are getting all of our events for free, and our stay at the resort for 7 nights for free! This allowed us to be able to contribute towards some of our guests rooms, and allowed us to spend more on extras for the wedding. 

 

However, if we didn't add on extras (decor, flowers, entertainment, rentals, entertainment etc), we could have our wedding for almost nothing. If we went with the basic setup provided and just added a DJ, our wedding could be under 2K. 

 

I hope that helps! Feel free to PM me if you want any more details or specifics!  :)

The last DW I attended's cost was just over 9k. It was a group of 43 at the Majestic Colonial. The bride and groom's trips were both free(for every 15 bookings, they received 1 free trip). They had the top photography/videography package available at the resort, the top wedding package available as well as a private reception until 11pm. 

Hope this helps a little!
