William and Kate’s Wedding Cost Vs. The Average U.S. Wedding

While the cost of the average wedding is rising faster than gas prices, they are simply no match for nuptials on the high end - the royal weddings! With the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton coming soon, many have wondered just how expensive the event is. For this occasion, WePay, which provides the best way to accept payments online, has created an infographic to help the average person understand the costs of throwing a royal wedding. Taking away all the crown jewels and celebrity hype - is the bill really that much higher?

In short, yes. Here is a selection from the infographic:

Wedding Dress Costs
Average: $2,450
Royal: $41,000

Flowers
Average: $1,230
Royal: $360,000

Honeymoon

Royal: $655,000

Still feel bad about an “extravagant” wedding? People won’t after they find out the total cost of the royal wedding. Plus, they’ll learn how long the average engagement is, the average amount spent on gifts, and the top 5 most expensive weddings. Get the lowdown before the big royal throw down!
