    Bride= $100,000
    Ring (her’s)= $50,000 (at least 5 carets and don’t forget about the 5Cs)
    (His’s)=$5,000 (something worthy)
    House=$1,000,000 (at least)
    Car/s=$60,000 (cheapest one)

    She’s really sweet with great ambitions. Any guy would be lucky to know her.

    Since you’re only having 200 guests then it shouldn’t be that much. Still expensive though. I’m thinking $30,000 to $40,000, not including the bridal price but you know, it all comes back to help pay for the wedding anyway.

    But you know, it would be cheaper if you just book 2 tickets to Vegas. I’m planning on doing that but my sister said that my parents are going to give me the traditional wedding anyway. You don’t want to know how much my wedding is going to be…

    hey SN,

    why $30-40K?
    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
    limo $300
    ————————————
    sub-total = $22,400

    u know wedding is for the ladies. :)
    i wanted to go to Vegas and do the drive-thru.
    buttttttttt…we’ll have to close the whole damn town and invite the whole town!! :(
    this is Indonesian tradition. :P

    buy Webster dictionary next year, and look up the word “broke”. you will see my picture in there. :P

    Guys…we’re all adults here right? Joking is all fine and good, if it’s appropriate. Saying all this stuff about Po wasn’t cool…especially if she’s a stranger to you, who just happens to be really pretty. I think a lot of us guys make the mistake of judging someone solely based upon their appearances and using that bias to contextualize things they say. Just because a girl is really attractive doesn’t immediately make her an arrogant, stifled, materialistic snob, ya know? She’s actually a really cool and intelligent person who works very hard at what she does…that is if you would only take the time to get to know her before making such remarks. That being said, you’d know her quote was only a joke. And you’d know how totally off-base you were. I respect her tons. That may not mean anything to you guys…but it speaks volumes for those who agree with me.

    Photographer $1000.00
    Videographer $1000.00
    Home Ceremony $2000.00
    Wedding Supplies $3000.00

    *No free band over here for reception.

    Cake from China Town $ 800.00
    200 guests @ reception $10,000.00
    Band $3000.00 max
    Flowers and decorations $1000.00 max

    Then you have the rings, the bridal price, the offerings which can add up to at least $10,000.00

    Total: $33,800.00

    Weddings over here are expensive and you hardly ever make the difference.

    Concerning this…I think Tony intention is not mean spirited. He is trying to be funny. I believe PoChhim reaction is uncall for. Of course, I do not know any of these pple…so I could be completely wrong.

    Being online and all, I guess this is not love at first site huh? heehehe

    Until we meet…
