MONEY MATTERS: The Cost of Attending Weddings Skyrockets
According to a new study, the cost of attending a wedding has jumped in a big way – up 75% in the last two years.
Going to a wedding now costs an average of $592, with $308 of that going to travel and accommodations and $164 toward clothing and accessories.
And, this doesn’t even factor in the price of the gift.
It’s enough to get you to consider checking the “no” box on the RSVP just to save money … especially if you don’t have confidence that the couple will stand the test of time. (MarketWatch)
