Average US Wedding Costs $27K

The average cost of a wedding and reception in the United States these days is $27,000. According to WeddingWire, that jumps to $36,000 when you include the cost of an engagement ring and honeymoon.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the process gets more expensive as it goes along. Before spending $27,000, the average couple budgeted $16,000 for the big event.

A lot of that spending will be going on in the next few weeks. In 2017, the top four wedding dates were the Saturdays between September 30 and Oct. 21. Number five on the list was Nov. 11.

Each weekday, Scott Rasmussen’s Number of the Day explores interesting and newsworthy topics at the intersection of culture, politics, and technology. Columns published on Ballotpedia reflect the views of the author.
