One may also ask, how much is a small wedding? Expect to spend an average of $4,200 for a wedding of 140 guests ($30 per plate). Of course, if you're having a fancier wedding, be prepared to spend much more than that — anywhere up to $100 per plate depending on how decadent your reception is.
Just so, how much does a wedding at home cost?
Though estimates vary, the cost of an average wedding is well into the five figures. The website costofwedding.com pegs the national average at $25,764, while The Knot reports an average of $33,391.
