well just because this is the average doesn’t mean that you should spend that much or you can even spend more. The average amount spent on a US wedding is $20,000.

    This is a really great website: http://www.costofwedding.com/

    It says that on average it’s 28,800 dollars. Yee-ouch. And that doesn’t include the honeymoon or rings.

    Are you getting thinking about getting married? Because there are a lot of nice places to get married, and there are a lot of great websites which can help you find cheaper things. My cousin is getting married this summer, so if you need any help, feel free to mail me. 🙂

    Good luck!

    Too much is often the right answer. Do what YOU and your fiance want, and what you can afford. My handfasting (December 2006) cost less than $500.00 including clothing (it was small and intimate and friends took photos and cooked), but we had a lovely ceremony, are very happy, not in debt – except for our mortgage. It depends on what you want. Otherwise, the sky is the limit. If you’re not paying yourself, please give your parents a break! Oh, and bright wedding blessings.

    It really depends where you are located and what kind of wedding you are having. I know up in the Northeast most people have black tie or black tie optional weddings and the average wedding costs $25,000-$35,000.

    The knot.com actually answers this question

    Also here is a link of what traditionally people pay for

    National Average is: 25-30 thousand depending on your area

    That being said most brides I work with are spending closer to 10k.

    Way too much, but it depends on where you live, but I believe the national average is around $25,000
