I would consider mine borderline, so I like to check this board for things. Our budget is 40k, which for 200 guests in our area isn't black tie or anything, but it is at a private country club, we're offering plated steak or fish, a full open bar, and passed apps. If we get declines (and 80% of our guest list is OOT so it's likely), I want to upgrade the open bar to premium and the steak to filet, if those two things happen I would consider it luxury.
@legu, I remember your story. Are you back together (and marrying) the same guy who told you it was either him or the baby? And then left you?
OK, I am going deep into my memory bank for this one. If I remember correctly, her and Fi got pregnant unexpectedly. Fi was not happy. He said it was either him or the baby. She didnt want an abortion and so he left her.
Legu's avatar is a picture of an ultrasound so I assume she kept the baby.
I agree that it depends on the area. I think we're having a luxury wedding even though we aren't spending 6 figures like some of the brides, but we are also only having 30 guests. We will have full open premium bar, plated dinners with filet mignon and lobster, live music, butler passed apps, specialty table linens, fresh flowers, full size bottles of wine and boxes of hand dipped chocolates for favors. Those are just some of the things, but I think that it's really having nice details and making sure that your guests are really taken care of.
