how much should a wedding cost on average.
not in a church.

My girl just emailed adn todl me she found a photographer for 4k and we have to fly him in from colorado. that seems outragous. I could understand a few hundred, but 4k.

ha, you better lay down a budget. yes, a photog could cost $4k. They can also cost $1k. depends on the service offered and the crew they may or may not bring.

I wouldn't mind a $20k-$30k wedding. But a 20-30k wedding in the states would be nice, but would barely get anything in Lebanon. And since most of our families are in Lebanon we have to do the wedding there.

also depends on where you are in life and who you can invite. Its good for youngsters as there folks pay for it, but they get a ****-load of gifts to get them started. For you, maybe just get some of your cash back, or if you can come up with decent registry gifts.

I agree, I wish I wouldn't have to put so much into it. But with the families wanting 400+ people there and in Lebanon, I don't have much of a choice.

Griffin ... may I suggest you hire a professional wedding planner to help you? Because you seem to be clueless in this area

Not a church wedding? So will you be renting a hall in a nice hotel? Planning on spending a lot more than the $20-30k number I just saw (easily double)

Edit - it will depend on how many guests... but there is a baseline cost to rent a hotel space

That won't be too bad at all if you don't go bridezilla crazy you could keep it all under 40k I imagine.

Most good photographers are 2-4k. The one from colorado better be amazing as there are almost too many to choose from here in california.

I definitely agree with Ed and get a wedding planner it saves a lot, A LOT of headache. I helped my plan my best friends wedding (by help i mean keep him from having a heart attack/stroke while coordinating his schedule with his wife's and planner) and it made my life easier with the planner being level headed person.

A good planner is about 2-3k on a budget but again the bigger you want to go extrapolate the costs. so if you want a 70k+ wedding expect a 10k photographer and a 10k planner and get your monies worth out of both of them

Ed's gonna marry your griff? he's in norcal not vegas no?

The biggest cost to any wedding is the number of guests. my wedding for giggles is about 50-60 people at a cost of about 25k in catering. my friends was about 20+ people at a cost of 75-80k for the same(relative) catering.
