How much did your wedding cost?

I'm trying to look for a location for my wedding in Texas. I found a few places but I'm not sure what is too expensive and what is a good price. I'm trying to have a wedding on the cheaper side but I still want everyone to really remember our wedding.

  • We had a huge wedding planned...300 people. 4 weeks before we got married I was stressed out and cancelled everyhting. Even sold my Vera Wang wedding gown on e-bay! My mom got me a dress from Dillards and my family and us went to the top of the mountain here and got married...we took our family to dinner at the Four Seasons then vacationed at the beach. We spent $1000 on decision we ever made. Looking back on it, not ONE person I had on my guest list am I still in contact with today!! Why give em a free meal?? You probably won't know them 5 years down the road. But do what makes you guys happy and expensive can mean different things to different people. If you can afford it and want it then do it...that simple.

  • Honestly, I lost count. My dad paid for it, and he insisted on spending more than I thought necessary on every little thing. I'm his only daughter, though, so maybe that's why. I was honestly more worried about who I was marrying than what the wedding was like.

  • We paid about $16,000 and I still didn't have the wedding of my dreams, I say save your money and do something smaller

  • we spent $300, $100 of it was my dress. otherwise, we did it in a chapel on base, did a bbq in the backyard at our new house afterwards and it was a BLAST!!! only about 20 people where there but we all had soo much fun and it was more me than a big huge ceremony in a big church would have been.
