$10k for about 60 guests.
Plus honeymoon was about $7k.
No regrets. I don't honestly know how people could do a wedding much cheaper (I know people do), it was lovely.
We saved heaps on the dress - I got it like 90% off for $300, and it was perfect, I loved it. The photographer was really cheap too and did a great job. I got a cheap makeup artist, my flowers were gerberas to save money, my auntie (a hairdresser) did my hair. I made my own invitations, etc.

115 people for a sit down 3 course meal with drinks for 5 hours.
Church wedding with bridal party of 7 bridesmaids/groomsmen, 4 pageboys and photographer for about 8 hours. Our parents paid for the reception ($7000) but everything else, including honeymoon in Vanuatu was around $10,000.
We dont regret it as we were both working and had only a small mortgage but if we did it again we'd have less people and somewhere like a winery or resort type setting. We are both foodie type people so would probably have more of a focus on a great meal and experience rather than stressing about how it 'should be' done.

About 10k, hunter valley venue, no attendants, only 5 guests. Seems expensive now for such a small wedding but don't regret it one bit, it was wonderful.
