These days, the average wedding costs about $27,000
That covers the bride, the groom, and an average of 138 guests, according to a compilation of wedding statistics from Pew Research, The Wedding Report, and the U.S. Census Bureau.
Couples usually get married in churches and synagogues, but other popular spots are public gardens, private homes, beaches, and country clubs.
