It’s no surprise that planning a wedding isn’t cheap. But it can still be a shock to the system (and your wallet) once you see those items start to add up. The average wedding in the U.S. costs $28,427–and if you happen to live in a major city like New York, it can run you more than $76,000. The easiest way to make sure you don’t overspend is to get an idea of how much the big items costs before you start planning. You can get started with these estimates.
Be sure to find out the first five vendors you should book for your wedding and what your center stone shape says about you.
