:wv I can't really help you that much as our hotel, is roughly coming in around 12-13K, we are not having a band, so i have no idea how much they cost, and are photographer is exactly the same price as yours 2k.. But they are usually the dearest in wedding, as you can save loads on other things, like your dress, & bm's by buying online etc

Sounds like the norm to me....mine is actually more expensive. Photograher is €2200, meal will be about €12,000 - just for meal, thats before arriveal reception, drinks reception, afters or anything like that. Band is €1600 but Dj on top of that is €500. So you are about average to be honest Id say! Edited to correct amounts

bx for 100 people i too think it is a bit dear we are having 250 people and the hotel is 8500 and that is with lamb or salmon band is 1500 and that includes the disco - they played at a family wedding recently and were excellent we brought in our own wine from france and even with the corkage of hotel that came in at 910 getting a family member who is excellent at photography to do photos dvd person was 1000 maybe your hotel is so expensive because you are having very extravagant food - if you are not i would say shop around
