    A small family one is great for their first bday but to make it a 100 plus guest one to me is ridiculous.  At that point it is all about the parents, not the child.   A one year old is happy with wrapping paper and a smash cake.

    we didnt have a big christening (under 50 ppl) so for both kids first birthdays 100+ people, catered, entertainment, we went all out.

    i think DS we spent close to $10K for his 1st birthday and for DD we spent about $6K and the only reason it was cheaper because of the place we catered from

    Just with my Mom and stepdad. No, they do not remember or care. Its for the parents, not the child at that age.

    a typical wedding where i live is usually about $300k+ 

    plate per person for a Saturday Night wedding is usually about $225pp 

    so its not being made of money its being where you live.

    i am considered lower middle income where i live.

    I had fairly large family parties for both my kids. 20-30 people, games, favors, cake. Nothing gigantic, but a good sized party anyway. But i haven't ever spent over $150 INCLUDING gifts.

    You can have a party, but it would be mainly for you, not the child. Have family over or friends, probably not a huge crowd,  have some fun, sing happy birthday.

    Are you serious?? Just because that's what's "expected" doesn't mean u should actually do that. That kid of money for a 1 year old birthday is insane!
