    $55k and that does not include a honey moon.

    I do not regret the amount we spent but I do regret what we spent it on. I was so wrapped up in impressing people that I got lost in that when what I really wanted was a beach wedding with a gourmet bbq as a reception.

    If we were to go back in time a destination wedding is what I would go for.

    Thankfully we paid for everything in cash so there was no long term debt from the day.

    We get married in 1 week we have spent a bit over $30000. The reception is $15000 for 110 guests, 3 course meal and drinks, dress was $2200, we paid for bridal party suits and dresses and everything that goes with them. It all added up really quickly but I can't wait for the day to come

    Amazing how it adds up even with 58 guests isn't it? I had 60 guests and it wasn't even a sit down meal! It was a cocktail reception and still I managed to rack up $55,000 plus the honeymoon!

    The hunter sounds like it would have been a dream wedding!

    $5000 on the wedding.
    $7000 on teh honeymoon.

    I regret the wedding expense, it was more than would like to have spend and could have been better used elsewhere. I don't regret the honeymoon expense though, that was well worth it.

    We spent around $50k not including honeymoon. And if we could do it all again, we'd do it totally different.
    Don't get me wrong, everything was beautiful. Married on a pier all done up and a stunning reception at port Melbourne yacht club.

    But some of things we spent money was unnecessary, such as $4000 on flowers and decos for the pier and reception.
    And $2500 on a dress that I had custom made, which I didn't even like in the end. Could have got a one I loved for $800 at brides of Melbourne off the rack.
    Anyway, it was just things like that. But everyone had an awesome time.

    DH parents and my parents paid for our wedding which was approx. $20K, not including my dress, jewellery, hair, makeup etc. We had a church service followed by our reception at a SLSC with a sit down dinner. Honeymoon cost around $22K which we paid for.

    $25000 roughly in brisbane and including honeymoon at the sunshine coast.

    We had 60+ guests at reception with constant drinks (not bar tab but paid a price for free drinks from start till end) all drop meals not buffet, cheese and fruit platters on arrival etc. was gorgeous! the works for 4 bridesmaids, 4 groomsmen, bride, groom, flower girl and page boy. Church wedding. We had everything and it was really great but I really really shopped for the best price or did it myself where I could ie invites etc.

    Maybe alot of money but I wouldn't change a bit of it.

    My stepbrother got married and had over 100guests nothing very decorative in the reception but it was a winery and 1 bridesmaid/groomsmen and it cost over $60,000.
