According to a study by a research company called The Wedding Report, the average wedding now costs roughly $26,029. That’s up from just $24,111, 10 years ago and $25,674 last year. And of course, that’s just the average. Weddings are more expensive in cities like New York (average price: $39,948) and Chicago ($29,846). With costs on nuptials continuing to rise, it’s not surprising that more couples are crowdsourcing the funding for the big day.
