My first wedding we spent just over $60,000 on all the trimmings. I must admit though .. it was beautiful! White Rolls Royce's, ice sculptures, edilble table centrepieces, snow dome wedding invitations, castle palace for the reception, butterfly release, a $3500 wedding dress, a $1000 cupcake tower cake and the list goes on and on. That includes the honeymoon to Dunk Islan. Fat lot of good all that money spent did because 15 months later we were seperated and we had a quickie divorce. So do I regret spending that much money? Yes and no. No because it was everything I could have dreamed of and I'm so glad I experienced it and yes because it was with the wrong man
My second wedding with DH, we had 10 of us in total at the rotunda at Balmoral Beach and then we had the reception at Bathers Pavillion. I think we spent about $3500 in total including my dress and we spent about $6500 on the honeymoon in Vanuatu so $10,000 in total.
