Honestly? This could easily be $100,000.
You could easily spend $10,000 on a "flashy" wedding dress.
You could easily spend $300 a person on a really nice reception.
You could easily spend $20,000 renting a "really nice" place
You could easily spend $10,000 on a Caribbean Honeymoon, for a mid-level room
You could easily spend $2000 on hair & makeup
A nice entry model suit by a fine brand like Zegna could be $1000.
Realistically, very nice wedding dresses tend to start at around $1500 and go up from there. I know a girl, who has no money, who spent $5000 on hers.
My location was $4000 for the wedding and $5000 for the room rental for the reception. These costs included chairs, altar, gazebo, carpets, refreshements, the entire dining room setup with fine china, tablecloths, silver, candleabras, etc.
My food was like $100 per person for 4 courses, appetizers, the cake, and wine. The bar was another per person charge.
For a Caribbean hotel, I'd plan on $400-$500 a night for a balcony room with an ocean view in a nice hotel.
Professional m/u artists will often charge $250+ for a wedding. Hair may run about the same, especially if you have them come to the location.
