How much does the average wedding cost?

The average wedding cost, per the Knot and WeddingChannel in a 2012 survey of 18,000 brides was about $28,000.

Of course, an average number can be misleading in that actual costs for a couple can be well below that figure (think a quick elopement) or well above that figure (royal weddings can cost in the 10s of millions of dollars - fun fact Charles and Diana's 1981 wedding cost $48M then and a whopping $110M when inflation adjusted to today). Also there are tremendous differences across geography, formats, guest count, and the like.

At Bite, we look to help you get the most for your wedding budget, whether you're looking for a simple post-wedding cocktail reception or you're planning a royal affair. We believe a wedding should represent the couple and families coming together and will work hard to help you put together something that will make your day special. Take a look at our wedding planning and catering and let us know how we can help you to make your wedding amazing (we don't do average at any budget)!

To give you a sense of starting points:

  • We can start at ~$25/guest for an intimate cocktail hour (food only)
  • Full service wedding menus (food and labor) typically start at ~$75/guest
  • We're happy to be creative and work in some non-traditional approaches to work with budgets. Let us know what you're looking for and we can help to put together a plan!

We know wedding planning can be overwhelming. Our planners can help you think through your options and make sure your wedding dollars are focused on the elements that matter the most to you and your family. Tell us about your upcoming wedding and let us know how we can help!
