    Ours cost us $40k not including our honeymoon. When I got married the first time (15 years ago) it cost $10k.

    The first time around my parents paid for most of it, the second time around I wouldn't let anyone else pay anything so we felt like we could have whatever we wanted. We spent $40k on our honeymoon too. Looking back I loved everything about our wedding, but the money we spent seems ridiculously excessive!

    Approx $60 000. Don't remember exact breakdown, 240 guests. Not including honeymoon overseas for a month. Can't remember how much dh's ring was, my ring was $8500. Only thing id change is the amount of guests.. If i did it now there would be no more than 130 guests.

    Ours was ~34k, most of which was covered by my in-laws. There were 68 adults, & 1 kid. I spent another 2500 for accommodation for my family who came from overseas.

    Plus another 10k for our honeymoon, which we paid for.

    Just for the day, $350 ish

    $80 for my dress
    $50 for DH shirt
    The rest was registry office fees.

    Then lunch with both sets of parents, buffet, don't know how much it cost as my parents paid but I'd say about $50 a head for the 6 of us.

    Then if you want rings, mine was just under $2k but DH didn't need one as he had his pops. Plus I didn't really have an engagement ring.

    We got married at the registry office. I regret nothing, it was perfect and personal and exactly us.

    We did a 6 course degustation followed by a cheese station and cake. Food was so important to us and I would 100% do it again.

    No judgment here - everyone does things their own way. Your total cost just seems unreal. It must have been some wedding.
    I should have added that included all the furniture/ no floral decorations.

    It was beautiful but can't argue it was expensive.

    My Bali wedding was $20k max, including dress, flights, accom. For 50 guests. I found food and drinks were the hardest areas to compromise on price.

    Absolute best day of life. Yet to welcome a bundle into the world though so that might take the title eventually haha

    @mummymaybe I want to see pictures!!

    I would have spent more had I known my in-laws were going to give us a lump sum. We had no idea until a few days before. It was so generous of them.

    So there were a few things I didn't have due to cost which I'd have loved; garden party-esque outside lighting being the main thing.
