that's a lot!!!
you know the average cost in the U.S. only $20K?
depends on the food but western dish costs about $50/dish.
Khmer wedding costs about $200/person.
i don't know why we have so many foods anyway.
no one can eat all of that.
anyhow, at $200/person times 200 guests = $4000
photographer = $1500
videographer = $1500
cake = $200
flower = $300 or so for the whole decoration
hennessy = $50/bottle times 25 tables = $1250
traditional Khmer band = $1600
live modern band = $1600
breakfast/lunch @ home = $1000
honeymoon for one week to Paris = $4000
total = $16,950
additional $5,000 for engagement ring (VVS, 3/4c, E)
additional $150 for wedding band
sub-total = $22,400
u know wedding is for the ladies.
