  • 2K. I'm pretty sure that's well below the average though. Good luck.

  • we got married in 2003. We paid about 10,000 total for everything. We also saved for several years for our wedding.... so no debt from that.... but ended up accumulating debt from other things later :(

  • My answer probably won't be much help...mine was about $300, if you count the dress/shoes/jewelry, license & ceremony fees, and the dinner we ate after the fact. LOL. We couldn't come to an agreement with my parents about where/when to get married, so we eloped (though my parents came, so it wasn't much of an elopement ;-). Good luck with planning - the price really comes down to what kind of event you want, the number of guests, etc. :)

  • We eloped to the Bahamas. Wedding/honeymoon combo was $3500 including flight, having fun, and the wedding. Reception back home was $2000 with a private caterer and booze for 100 people.

  • It's hard to say because my dad paid for it all. However, when I lost count the running total was somewhere around $10k. We had a fairly small wedding, but wedding crap REALLY adds up. It's insane how over-priced everything is when it comes to weddings!

  • I had three weeks to plan my wedding and it ended up costing us 1,000$ That is the dress, food, decorations, flowers, cake and rings . We got married in my Aunt's backyard on the Fourth of July Weekend ( July6th 2002). .

  • I really don't know, because my aunt did all the decorations and the cakes, and our church provided the reception snacks. I only paid about $100 for my dress. So mine was really cheap. I just wanted a simple ceremony at our church though. Ok, really I would have been happy outside in jeans, but my now-hubby wanted to see me dressed up, lol. I know the majority of weddings cost WAY more than mine was.
