Are you planning a wedding? Congratulations! Here's a nifty infographic from the Huffington Post that will help you navigate all of the wedding costs involved in planning your special day.
Naturally, where you get married will affect how much you’ll spend. Let’s not forget there’s the dress, the cake, the photographer, the venue, the wedding bands and many other costs to keep in mind. Luckily, this visual guide fills you in on how much a wedding costs across the United States.
You’ll notice that prices are steeper in the Northeast, especially in the states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Between the dress, the venue and the cake you’d end up spending almost $7,000 on average - that’s without counting the rest of your expenses. In comparison, you’d pay roughly $4,900 in places like Iowa, Kansas and Missouri.
Of course, deciding where to host your wedding really boils down to a combination of factors including budget, family, where you live and places you and your fiance like to travel. The beauty of it is that it's all up to you and this infographic is a great tool to help you research your best options. Happy wedding planning!
