We eloped. Our wedding cost under $1,000. We got married by an Elvis impersonator and I had a Spock as a witness. I have always thought weddings were an e-ticket as far as cost.

I read somewhere that it is about 30K. My daughter will get married in a couple of years, but as the good daughter she is, she doesn't want a big wedding. Some of my friends had weddings cost 250K, which I think is just crazy. Those weddings are mainly for the parents, as the bride and groom don't really have time to enjoy it. I say, have a simple wedding and give the rest of the money to your kids as a down payment on a house.

The prospective bride and groom should be presented, "Here's $15,000 you can use to make a down-payment on a house, or pay off your debt, but you need to elope. Don't tell your mother."

I sold wedding and engagement rings before getting into real estate.  The happiest brides were ones that eloped or had destination weddings.  Doesn't need to cost an arm and a leg.  I'm guessing $20K is the average in the nation, but probably more expensive in larger markets.

We had a huge wedding but the cost was very low with friends, relatives, and people from the church contributing help with the cooking and other tasks and the VFW hall available for free since my father in law was a very active member.

The average is kind of irrelevant.  It can vary a lot based on what you do/where you live.

In the city where I live, $35,000 - $58,000.

In the town where I grew up, for 200-300 guests, $62,000 - $105,000. 

 

It's almost a downpayment on a house.  actually, maybe not...houses are expensive here, too.

How much did you pay?

I read something the other day that it is $29,000. That sounds low to me but it may be accurate as an "average cost".

I could find a lot of better uses for that sum!

Around $30K but many are higher if income allows. Not a good investment IMO. Better to have a moderate expense for the wedding and bank your cash for a down payment on a house! ;-)

I got married on a beach in Cuba.  Total cost for the the entire event, food, drinks, rooms for a week, airfare, clothes, and the party was $3000.00 Canadian, which is probably about $2200 USD.  You sure cant do that anywhere in Canada or the USA for that price.
