How Much Does a Wedding Cost on Average?Tuesday, August 28, 2018
Geography matters, too. Getting married in New Mexico only costs, on average, $17,000 according to The Knot. But if you get married in New York City (Manhattan), expect to pay around $76,944. Your head-count matters regardless of budget. The cost of a larger wedding, with 100 people or more, is significantly more than that of an intimate wedding. According to the website CostofWedding.com, 50% of couples keep their wedding costs below $15,000 by opting for an intimate wedding. Yet invite 100 or more guests for a larger wedding, and you're looking at costs totaling twice as much (or more, if you're getting hitched in a big city like San Francisco or New York City). Traditional Wedding Cost Splits Wedding traditions, at least from a financial point of view, haven't changed much over the years. Exhibit "A" is having the bride's family pay the most for the wedding. According to The Knot, the bride's family pays 45% of all wedding costs. Right behind the bride's mom and dad are the actual newlyweds, who contribute 41% of wedding costs. The groom's family pitches in, too, paying 13% of total wedding costs. While traditions remain strong, figuring out who pays for a wedding can be somewhat complicated, given that so many people are getting married (and remarried) later in life. Historically, here's a list of who pays for what in a traditional wedding. It's an important piece of knowledge, considering that you'll need to set up a wedding budget beforehand, and you'll want to know who's paying for individual wedding costs. What the Bride's family traditionally pays for: The reception, complete with drinks, food, music and a wedding cake The wedding ceremony, including flowers and any special decorations The bride's wedding gown The photographer and videographer Limousine or special transportation to the wedding and reception What the Groom's family traditionally pays for: The wedding rehearsal dinner Wedding gifts for the bride and groom What the Bride traditionally pays for: The wedding ring for the groom Any wedding gift for the groom The bride's hairstyling and make-up Wedding gifts for her bridesmaids What the Groom traditionally pays for: The bride and groom's marriage license The bride's engagement ring The honeymoon Any wedding gift for his groomsme... https://www.thestreet.com/personal-finance/education/how-much-does-wedding-cost-14693474
