Cost to attend a wedding? Why 2022 is an ‘expensive year’ for customers

Large stacks of wedding invitations and high inflation rates make 2022 a costly year for guests.

  • A recent survey found that guests can expect to spend more than $1,300 to attend just one out-of-state wedding this year.
  • The average wedding guest this year is invited to five weddings and attends four.
  • Inflation, which remains near 40-year highs, is driving up the cost of travel, gifts and hotel stays for weddings this year.

Levon Myers thought the past year had been busy with six weddings to attend. This year, he’s been asked twice as much – and it’s costing him thousands.

With 2.6 million weddings Due in the US in 2022 according to wedding site The Knot, the likes of Myers and his fiancée have been inundated with invitations. The couple cannot do all the events. But the eight or nine they participate in will take around 84 hours of travel time in the car and cost them about $5,000 in gas, hotels, clothes, and singles and singles parties.
