    Getting married next week, roughly 30k budget for 150 people. Cost is being split 4 ways, but I still spend every other minute being bitter about it.The wedding day will work out to $50/minute. I'm gonna be taking some expensive dumps that day. If I had it my way, I'd have a small gathering in my backyard with some bbq and spend the rest of it on a honeymoon... But both sets of parents ain't having it.

    No doubt. WTF?

    If someone had a problem with the way I wanted to do my wedding, I'll tell them to fuck right off and not come. Parents or otherwise.

    Give me a break, that's totally ridiculous.

    Talking

    Is it ridiculous, yes, but 30k probably isn't far off from the average cost of a wedding in Calgary. And my own share of that is under 8k. But while it doesn't really resonate much with me, it makes a lot of people in the family extremely happy. So I can suck it up this one time for my parents who have invested 1000 times that into me. And it makes the lady happy which has its own rewards

    Well said but then again, an old white guy like myself will not ever begin to comprehend that intricacies involved with being a young chinese lad like little_wan - I'd expect that they've got culture and untold/unsaid customs/expectations that are expected to be conformed to regardless of one's own personal wants. I would also suspect the same of many other groups of people - even some of the more Italian families I know place very heavy expectations on those in their families that are getting married.

    My kids - if and when they get married, if they want to do it in the backyard or do something simple, I'll have no issue with that as it is truly their day and their day alone - the rest of us, we are there only to witness something special happening between two people. But note that this is coming from a guy whose wedding was solely footed by myself and my wife - we wanted no one else's monies to be involved because of the usual expectations that might have come attached with that offered money.

    90 some odd people in Kelowna in a wonderful small church, very nice sit down dinner and an open bar for all invited guests - happened some 22 years ago and no, I don't remember the cost anymore as there's just to much white hair creeping in above. Our extravagances - the cake, the hotel room that night and the photographer (can't ever go back and capture the moment because of a shitty photographer).

    When your budget allows you to spend ($20-70K), then I would say go for it.

    It really depends if you can financially afford it or not. We had a blast on our wedding and I'd do it again.

    I already owned my place when I met my wife and cars etc were all paid for.

    She's Turkish and there is no such thing as a $5000 wedding to a Turkish girl. haha

    We had 200 people at the Sheraton downtown. All in with food, venue, video/photographer, drinks etc. we were around $40,000 - not including honeymoon. That was 8 years ago though too so probably more now.

    I just knew that I did not want a buffet, I wanted plated dinner where everybody gets their food at the same time instead of getting called up to get in line for beef on a bun or something like that. I always hated that about weddings. Some people are finishing desert and you are still sitting there waiting to get called up.

    Coming from a big European family my parents want a huge wedding. If whoever I marry is willing to go the traditional big church, big reception, 1000+ guests, open bar, my parents will pay.

    If we want something smaller or non traditional We will have to pay.

    My cousin go married last year in a big traditional wedding and it is tempting. They had almost 2000 people in 2 big sittings, didn't pay for a thing. The showers furnished a house, the parents put a substancial down payment on the house, the 500+k in envelopes at the reception paid off the rest of the house and bought a couple decent cars.

    As much as I do not believe in church, and would much prefer a smaller more intimate venue in a non traditional setting, it is hard to turn down gifts like that imo.
