Mostly it's the number of guests, we're expecting it to be ~350 people (we have huge families apparently). The bulk of the cost is the banquet hall, then you add the ceremony, flowers, dj, photographer, etc etc etc, it quickly goes up.

Don't pay a photographer. You will never look at your wedding photos again.

1) Elope (or just head to the courthouse)
2) Have a cool dinner party
3) Buy another rental with the money you saved

Yeah, my wife did too. Now we have a book of photos somewhere in a box that we never look at. My kids have never asked to see them. Nobody has ever asked to see them. What a waste.

But I suppose it's all part of the massive industrial-wedding complex. You. will. be. assimilated.

I just talked with my girl and she thinks she can do everyting for under 11k.
she wants to plan it herself. she knows this stuff bores me to death. I told her to run the bill by me first and I will pay for it.
I figure that inot that bad considering the cost it could be.

Sir, you are getting off cheap. I mean that as a double entendre of course.

Reminder for budgeting purposes: You pretty much tip everyone that day, so figure in that wad of cash to your total.

Just wait. Something will change between now and then... Something will go wrong, or be the wrong color, or she'll get some fantastic idea...

It feels like that entire day (noon-12pm) happened in 5 minutes... a lotta bang for the buck, ya know??

that sucks

I told her in the begining I would spend 10k. If she could not ddo it for 10 then we would go to tahoe and have an asain elvis marry us and then throw a huge party for everyone. that is all people really want. they want, good ffood, cake, drinks and music. no one carries about the ceramony. So, I set it up in wine country. and close to cheap and expensive hotels. I am serving all you can drink wine, champagne and beer, not hard alcohol except for the wedding party.

That's the way to do it. People don't even care about good food after the cocktail hour. All they want is some good food to snack on when they get there and then booze and music. To hell with everything else. If you have ample booze and good music people are going to say it was a good wedding.

I have actually been to weddings that they stop serving during the ceremony and during the introductions. My venue even said that they do not serve during introductions cause it's rude since some people will be getting drinks. I solved that problem quickly by telling them, it's my wedding, I don't care and if that is their policy we will gladly keep looking. We are going as far as having red and white wine as well as champagne on the tables so that the older people don't have to stand and wait at the bar and having them roll out another bar (total of three) so that people aren't waiting long for drinks.
