Wedding Bonanza: How Much Will the Party Cost?

In 2021, the national average cost of a wedding was about $28,000, a figure that includes the rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and a reception with 105 guests — but not the engagement ring (which averaged $6,000) or the honeymoon. Of course, the average price tag varied greatly by location, from $16,000 in Oklahoma to $47,000 in New Jersey. With inflation soaring, many couples are facing significantly higher costs, and greater competition for in-demand vendors, in 2022.
