The budget for a wedding can vary according to a number of factors: geographical location, services required, personal preferences and, above all, the number of guests. Here’s an overview of the items you’ll need to consider for your big day:

  • The reception area
  • Flowers and decoration
  • The catering menu and drinks – the wedding cake
  • The photographer and/or videographer
  • The bride and groom’s clothes – the beauty check – the wedding rings
  • Music and entertainment
  • Wedding invitations
  • Gifts for guests
  • A babysitter for the children
  • The honeymoon
  • And much more….

The banquet generally accounts for half of the wedding budget, with the average price per place setting ranging from 75 to 150 euros or more, depending on your wishes. Other expenses to be taken into account include special services such as next-day brunch, photo calls, photomatons, fireworks, etc.

Depending on the size of the wedding, here is an estimate of average budgets in France:

  • Intimate wedding: from €10,000 to €15,000
  • Average wedding: €20,000 to €30,000
  • Large wedding: over €30,000

It’s important to note that these figures are only estimates, and that actual costs may vary depending on your choices and the specific circumstances of your wedding.
