5 Ways to Be a Great Wedding Guest

Weddings can cost a bundle for the couple getting married. A typical wedding with 100 guests can run the couple upwards of $30,000 for a ceremony and reception.

But what does it cost on average to attend a wedding? It’s not cheap.

According to a new survey on wedding prices by Priceline conducted with 1,016 adults over age 21 around the country, wedding attendees are spending upwards of $600 big ones to do all the wedding-related activities, including bachelorette or bachelor parties, a wedding shower, an engagement party, hotel room, travel expenses, engagement gift, and a wedding gift.

The survey found that 24 percent of people will spend a whopping $800 to $1000 on a bachelor or bachelorette party. Men are more likely to travel for the bachelor party, with 60 percent saying they would go far for the bash. Only 43 percent of women would travel for the party.

Most people would travel for the actual wedding. The survey found that 47 percent of people who flew for a wedding just wanted an excuse to travel. Another group, 67 percent traveled for the wedding and returned home.

Most people attend three weddings a year on average, and cough up $893 per wedding.

The result of all the money talk?

Many potential guests who fell between the ages of 21 and 34 said they’ll just call the whole thing off. They’ll decide to skip the whole affair if it becomes too expensive.
