  • I think my parents spent about $3500, not counting the honeymoon. But it was a very small wedding.

  • Very little I don't see the point in spending way too much for a one day event.

  • Ugh way more then we intended. It was $300 for the venue $100 "donation" to the preacher, $75 for the hall for the reception, close to $1000 for food (not including champagne and wine), around $500 at a rental place for candelabras, $300 or so on floral arrangements (got lucky on them), $75 on bows for the pews at the church, another $75 on special bows for the front pews for wedding party (totally gorgeous imported), wedding favors maybe $50, reception decoration (we did ourselves mind you) $125, $150 to rent table covers to match everything, and than the ring bearer pillow was around $30, basket for flower girl and flowers to put in it around $45. It was all the small things that ended up getting us.

  • $6,000. We had a formal wedding, 200 guests. We did a lot to get the price down to that amount too (did our own flowers, wedding on a Friday instead of a Saturday, etc.)
