I think my wedding neuroses really comes from all those people who say “when I got married I only…

Yeah these numbers seem much more reasonable. My wedding ended up being about $17,000 — $18,000 in the end I think? Much like a few of the other people that shared their info, as soon as it was all done with I have not thought much about the specific costs. We were very lucky in that we did a nice three-way split between my parents, my husband’s parents and us though. But yes that was with a fairly standard wedding (140 people, ceremony, dinner, and dance afterwards). It was neither super fancy, nor super budget (we did work a fair bit to keep costs down, but we did not cater it ourselves or rope our friends/family into working for free).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
