Believe me, it will not be a super expensive wedding. Not paying for DJ, I'll draft a bartender, and my friend is a professional wedding photographer with his own business (An assistant will probably shoot it as he'll be guest).
I'm not getting any monetary help, so the budget is <15k.
I'm actually getting married this Saturday, and while the wedding isn't cheap, it's also not ridiculous. We're doing it at the Jacksonville (FL, USA) Zoo, they're catering, full and open bar, and it's actually a pretty cool venue. One of my best friends is one of those Six Flags Discount Internet Minsters, so he's doing the service, and another friend is a professional guitarist, so he's playing. There are ways to keep costs down if you're resourceful. All in all, the sincere hope is that our wedding will be one hell of a party, so if that's a success, it'll be well worth the expense.
Aside from the whole being married part, anyway...
