The price of weddings can be substantial. The average ceremony and reception reached $29,195 in 2022, according to data from the research site The Wedding Report. But you may aim to pay much less.

To help you figure out how much you’ll spend on your big day, NerdWallet’s wedding costs calculator provides a budgeting framework for the ceremony and reception, while also showing how adjusting individual expenses will affect the total.
