MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A new report breaks down the amount the average American couple spends on their wedding day — and the result may make eloping sound like a pretty good plan.

The Wedding Report compiles statistics and numbers for the wedding industry. It found the average American couple spends $25,200 on their big day.

The report also broke down costs by states and metro areas.

Weddings in the Twin Cities were way above the average, at nearly $30,000.

The average number of guests at a Twin Cities wedding was about 230 people.

On average, a single wedding guest could add between $164 and $201 to the overall cost of the wedding.
