Obviously you can spend as little or as much as you want on a wedding, but we have a lot of difficult decisions to make if we want to have a decent sized wedding that is not going to put us in the poor house. You start out by looking at the various wedding venues and what they are going to be able to provide. For instance it is a lot simpler if you have your wedding at a big hotel and they can take care of a lot of the things that you need. In particular you would be able to get them to put together a menu and feed the guests at the wedding reception. That is going to be a big part of the budget obviously. You can spend as much as you want to feed the guests, but it is usual for it to run something like fifty dollars per person, In fact the big thing is the number of wedding guests that you have to feed and provide drinks for. That is going to be one of the big budget items and we are trying to figure out what the minimum number is that we are going to be able to invite. It is going to be over a hundred people, probably something up around a hundred and thirty the way that it looks right now. If that is the case, then you are looking at something over six thousand dollars just for the food. If you have beer and liquor that is going to be a big expense as well, but we figure that it is something we can just opt out of. A lot of people are going to expect you to spring to help them get loaded, but we can just say we are afraid of getting sued if someone gets drunk and does something dumb.
