When is the last time you attended a wedding with or without a guest and didn’t have to put out at least $200 dollars by the time the entire thing was all said and done. I love how the bride and groom sometimes act like they are doing you a favor by adding you to their guest list. Depending on what is going on in my life financially and how close I am to those getting married, sometimes I cringe when that invitation shows up in the mail.
A new study found that the cost of attending a wedding now stands at an average $592 dollars. That is a 10% jump from 2013 and a 75% jump from 2011. The cost here only includes transportation, attire, and pre-wedding festivities.
No, the gifts haven’t even been added in yet!
