money, money, money

Weddingbee has started a new feature on budgets. After revealing the national average for wedding expenses they decided to start sharing real life budgets from the hive. Today they shared a wedding budget that totaled $55k (that doesn't include the rehearsal dinner, honeymoon, rings, or day after brunch). Now, this isn't the first large figure budget to be featured but there has been diversity: $7 k weddings, $13k, $15k, $20k, $30, $35k, etc... have been included in the mix.

My question: does this sound reasonable? Have you had a wedding? If so, did it approximate the national average of $30k? Was it more along the lines of today's $55k feature? Or, do these figures seem wildly extravagant?
