How much have you spent on your micro - wedding?

I'm at 8500 for my micro wedding of 21 guests. I'm gagging. That feels like a lot but then I read that the average cost of a wedding is 30,000 dollars. How much have yall spent?

    Hi Melody! It all depends on the number of people who'll be attending - providing food and drinks for your guests is definitely the biggest factor! But besides that, even though you've downsized your event there are some costs that won't change like photography, the cost of your dress, hair & makeup, etc.

    Here are some helpful discussions I've seen this summer where couples have talked about their expenses and budget breakdowns:

    Glad i am having a minimony... Why?

    Are backyard weddings really cheaper than a venue?

    How much was your small wedding or elopement?

    And this recent budget breakdown from another WeddingWire bride!

    It all depends on where you have it. for 21 guest in my opinion $8,500 seems like a lot

    $23,970 for 40 guests even though we are having a small wedding we decided not to skimp on things that we thought were important like live entertainment we went with an eight piece band. Plus we are having a six course wine dinner instead of the usual reception.

    My fiance and I had a budget of 10k and lower with 50 people (including us). Right now we are at 8k so far. We really wanted to keep it at 5k, but it's just so hard! We are looking into other options, but we will be finalizing everything this week.
