About $5,000 for 50 or so people, which is apparently very cheap but still seemed like a crazy amount of money to spend. We were (are) young, broke, and paying our own way. Pick one or two things that are very important to you both and spend the money on that. For us that was good food/booze and nice outfits (MTM). Get a venue that is nice in itself.
