I think that's perfectly reasonable. Dad offered sis the same budget.

my buddy is spending close to 50k. I laughed at him.

As being a business owner and a realist, I can see a good investment and a sh1t one. Spending a bunch of money on a wedding is a waste. I want a good phtographer, and the rest will be good food, booze and music. My playlist will be from the 80s and 90s. mostly old school hip hop and fun music. humpty dance is your chance to do the hump.

but that's where all the expense is, throwing the party.

our wedding ceremony is at a gazebo in a park we rented for $50.

figure $30 a person for dinner/cake and that's a few grand right there just to eat. a few grand to rent a space and decorate at minimum, a few grand for alcohol. a grand for the dj, grand for the photographer.

how many people are you inviting?

Thankfully I'm not responsible for paying for my wedding. Otherwise I'd be having it at Chuck E Cheese's.

If I had to guess based on what I saw the wedding alone after the cost of reserving the venue, orchestra, food, open bar, cake, etc. it will be around $75,000-$80,000. We are expecting about 125-150 people.

That does not include the rehearsal dinner for 50-70 some odd people or the Sunday brunch for out of town guests, another 50 or so individuals.

I wish her parents would cut us a check instead, go to the court house and get married, then use the money towards a luxury condo downtown.

I am at right around $45k if I am not mistaken and we are inviting around 270 people, expecting anywhere between 210-230.

She wants the wedding of her dreams. And if her parents are willing to finance that dream, then whom am I to interject? I don't think it's my place to tell either her nor her parents what a better use of the money would be.

How the fvck does one know/care enough about people to invite 270 of them to a wedding? I'd imagine 80% of them are otherwise not even remotely in your life at all.

Serious question, unless the fiance is the type who just has to have half her Facebook list over due to insecurity.

Family + work.

I went to a wedding in August with several hundred because the father of the bride was a prominent judge and invited probably 50 lawyers + spouses...

If this is later in life, fine I understand - you've built a portfolio and acquired contacts/"friends".

Its hard for me to imagine a 20/30-something doing the same.
