If you’ve spent even one second thinking about having a wedding, then your wallet probably already hurts. Weddings these days are expensive—sometimes wildly so. In fact, a recent study by The Knot found the national average cost of a wedding rose to $35,329 in 2016 (up from $32,641 in 2015). Why the major expense?
The study attributes the rising cost of weddings to the fact that couples are increasingly interested in “wowing” their guests with unique experiences and adding personal touches to every facet of their big day. While they help make the wedding exceptionally memorable, these details can also add up.
