I hurt my moms feelings because I kept vetoing her ideas; but I was paying; it was my budget and I swear I saw $ signs everytime she made a suggestion. My wedding was in the backyard at our new home. Expenses included lanscaping supplies; flowers; wedding dress; clothes and boots for groom. Wedding band. Veil. Bbq. For 50. Two cakes; wedding and grooms cake. Sweet tea and ice; paper plates were provided by Bbq place. We had cake plates and napkins for cake. The wedding cost about 4k but it was beautiful and we had about 50 guests.

This is somewhat what I am trying to shoot for, but for half the guests, if even that much.

Nice to have an "estimate" for future reference.
