1. Wedding attire
If you don’t go often too formal gatherings like a wedding, chances are you don't own a formal attire. You're lucky if you have a lot of it because you don’t need to buy. Formal wedding attires ranges from 2,000- 4,000 including your shoes and your clutch/purse. The price will vary on brands.

The transportation fee will depend on the venue; if it is going to be an out of town, you are going to spend around 500 - 1,000 pesos for the fare. And around 6,000 for the airfare. For an out of country trip, it will also vary on what country the couple is going to tie the knot.
If you are going to stay in for the night because you want to enjoy the party and rest for a while the accommodation fee will be around 2,000 - 3,000 pesos. That price includes free breakfast already and it is the regular price for resort hotels.
