Weddings are costing two-thirds of the average US yearly salary of $42,000.
That's right! Before taxes, the average wedding is running $28,082, with the major costs coming from the venue and catering.
The cost break down amounts to $1,000 on your wedding planner, $800 on invitations, $1,600 on your outfits, $1,800 on flowers, $1,300 on entertainment and $2,800 on our videographer.
Outside costs include a $3700 honeymoon, a $3400 engagement ring, an $1800 wedding band, and pesky extras like that marriage license.
