I do have to say I beat you on the cake price as mine was FREE. My aunt makes and decorates cakes for a living so that was are wedding present from her. I think we spent $700 total including our rings and that was in 1993.
We also poled it off in 3 weeks. My mil made us get married for my husband to get help with going to school. Long story short we were young and had an 8 week old child when we got married.

>>When dh & I married in 1994 we spent less than $200 for a full church wedding.I have heard the average wedding now is priced at over $65,000 and Iam in shock.How much did you all spend on your weddings?<<
i think the stats out there are a crock of pucky.
i found a cute site that you can input your zip code and it tells you what the average wedding cost for that zip code is…
for the small town in wi that i live in (population is 104 people) that the average wedding cost is $26,510 . That’s completely hilarious considering that the average INCOME for the town is $12,345.
I know of several weddings in town and I’m willing to bet that not a single 1 of them passed $1,200 in all.
For us personally, Our wedding cost less than $500. The most expensive item being the cake.
