He got the meal at €50 a head and I’ve had worse wedding meals let me tell you.
260 × €50 = €13k
If we assume average gift was €100 that’s €26k.
I know they got very generous gifts from both sets of parents amounting to well over €10k. Then wealthy guests or uncle’s/aunt’s might give a few hundred. They raked in over €45k it’s fair to say.
That leaves €32k to cover band, flowrers, photos etc and you can see how he easily got €20k profit out of it.
