1.) Number of guests: 8 to 10


2.) Location: Las Vegas


3.) Time of Year: September 27, 2008


Including rings, travel, etc... we'll come in around $12-14K (but that also includes honeymoon expenses since we'll just spend a week in Vegas while we're there).


We'll also host a casual party/reception for about 50 friends a month after the wedding, which will probably run about $1K. (very casual, low key)

We had a destination wedding in Las Vegas and we paid for food, entertainment, local transportation and activities during the long weekend. We didn't pay for guest accommodations or airfare. Including absolutely everything (including the cost of the entire wedding) for a dozen people it amounted to just under $10,000. I thought it was a great deal.

1) Guests: 150 for ceremony and cocktail-style reception/ 45 for private reception


2) Location: Los Angeles for the ceremony (at a church- First Congregational Church of LA) and Marina Del Rey for the Reception (restaurant in private room- Cafe Del Rey)


              -Side note: if you are looking for a intimate reception, beautiful space/view, great prices, with a guest list of 55 or less-- go to Cafe Del Rey in Marina Del Rey. It is 11 miles away from our church in LA, it is right on the marina and the whole room that we are using for dinner and dancing is made of glass and has a fire place. They are also letting us use their lounge for cake cutting and the slide show, which will be played on a plasma flat screen TV mounted on the wall. There are so many more cool things about it, and they are great to work with (plus no rental fee and you get to use all of their stuff for free, including some flowers!!!). Let me know if you want more info....


3) Price: So far not including rings and honeymoon,we are going to come in around 6,000-7,000 and top off at most around 10,000 (hopefully not!)


4) Time of year: December 20, 2009

1) Number of guests? 120-125


2) What is your location?  Sea Bright, NJ - Informal Beach Wedding


3) What was the final cost of your wedding? At first I wanted to cap at $15k - but budget is $25,000 excluding honeymoon.


4) time of year: 06/13/2009


Also - Paying for it all on our own; - location is a big thing too - If i were to get married back home it would be prolly $10,000. I never imagined forking out $25,000 - but i don't care it is once in a lifetime and something we are both proud of and want to give our friends/family a kick ass party.
