A wedding day is often considered one of the most happy, extravagant, nerve-wracking, and thrilling days of someone’s life. This significant event often comes with a large price tag that may take people by surprise. Between finding the perfect venue far in advance, ensuring that your guests are fed, alcohol, decorations, flowers, music and entertainment, dresses and suits, and other vendors, the wedding bill can add up fast. Fortunately (or unfortunately), where you decide to get married often influences how much your wedding will cost.
For example, a wedding in Manhattan costs an average of $96,910, which is way more than most people make in a year! The average household income in Manhattan is $110,849, which means that a wedding will cost about 87% of a year’s earnings. On the flip side, the cheapest weddings can be had in El Paso, Texas, with an average cost of $13,220. That is roughly 30% of the average household income.
