Budget vs Real Cost

What's the story? Many times couples have a specific wedding budget in mind and while some stick to their budget, the reality is that things add up quickly and often exceed the original budget. Cost of Wedding was created to help couples understand real wedding costs. We provide several tools to help you map real wedding cost or spending to your wedding budget.

The numbers provided on this site are simply a guide to help you better prepare for real wedding cost to wedding budget expectations. Averages are based on spending of other couples not wedding vendor prices. Spending and prices can vary widely. You should expect to pay, on average, 50% to 100%+ more when choosing well-experienced professionals, designer labels, popular event locations, unique or custom products and services. Investigate all options and choose products and services that best meet your needs.
