    Our original budget was $25k, and we are currently under but that’s cause I didn’t include wedding attire and wedding bands. Total of 10 people.

    We also have 65 guests and set a $20k budget. That doesn’t include rings, attire, personal things (like hair/makeup) or rehearsal dinner.

    We are planning for around $20k for 85 people for our destination wedding (we bought rings and attire already, not included). It’s looking good rug now but with gratuity and taxes we might go slightly over

    We are somewhere around 30-35K once it's all said and done. We are having a seated dinner with open bar for 150.

    Our budget is fairly flexible as my parents are paying for most everything. They wanted to keep as close to $10k as we could. We're looking to end up closer to $15k for everything. We invited 350 people but are planning on 200 coming (the wedding is 2 1/2 hours from my hometown so quite a few hometown people have declined). Right now, we're up to 111 people with a week to go in the RSVP window, but there's still a lot of people that haven't RSVP'd.

    We're aiming for 8k, but Im not being super strict about it. We are both frugal and we are upcycling a ton. (It wouldnt be a Macdonald wedding without making a thing about recycling tbh) Right now we are so so under budget with ~75% remaining

    My mom has given us 10K and the way it’s looking is to be under 7k. We are going to use that extra money on our honeymoon! We are estimating 250 guests. Our ceremony and reception is at our church so the venue is free. It’s an afternoon wedding so we only need finger foods. We are borrowing a lot of decorations from family. My FH also wanted to pay for our rings with his money. My mom gave me a separate budget for my dress and my FH family is giving him some money too (we are using it for the rehearsal dinner and honeymoon). Good luck with planning!

    We are inviting about 100 people and have a budget of $19,000. So far we've spent within budget so hopefully it stays that way

    Our original budget was $5,000. We had to slash that by more than half to $1,500 total including rings, attire, and honeymoon. 28 people and we came in just under that Smiley smile

    $25k for 200 people. Inviting 246 but a very large chunk of them are out of state and plus ones for friends that will not bring anyone. This does not include the rehearsal dinner or honeymoon. Everything is booked as of now and we're just saving/paying off vendors.
