How Much Will Your Wedding Cost?

There has been a lot of discussion on bridal websites and blogs about the rising costs of weddings, with the average being spent on a nice average wedding falling somewhere between $20,000 -$30,000.

But costs vary, it seems from state to state, with California and New York brides paying almost double that.

Want to find out what the cost of wedding will be in your area?

Cost Of Wedding.com

At the website Cost of Wedding, you can find out. Just type in your zip code (or the zip code of where you will having your wedding) to find out the price of an average wedding in your state.

The information is even broken down into categories and gives the average price of what you will pay for things like attire, stationery, photography and all that.

It will give you a good idea for brides just starting out with their planning, and also give you ideas on where you might be able to save some money.

My wedding location, which is not in my hometown but a family member's, averages over $85,000 for a wedding. I will hopefully be spending less than $20,000 total (who knows if that'll pan out) and will say HAH in the face of that total!

I'm going to my first bridal boutique tomorrow...today on a whim I bought a (returnable) inexpensive lacy sheath dress at Saks (if I get cap sleeves made for it, it will be pretty dreamy). I'm in DC but the wedding is in my home state, so my personal shopping will be here.

I've noticed there are a ton of ways to save, from DIY invites etc, to using the resources and connections you might have.

Minus rings and clothing (which we haven't settled on yet), we're definitely coming in under $10k, and that's here in Arlington.

My biggest fear about being a "budget bride" was that I would sacrifice some degree of class or style. So far, not at all...just takes a lot of determination and creativity, and sometimes a willingness to do things differently.
