Wondered how much the average spend for an Australian wedding in 2017 is? We have the figures right here.

The following figures are from a wedding survey conducted by Easy Weddings. The information gathered was taken from:

  • 2016 Bride survey, running in September 2016 with 2300+ brides
  • Easy Weddings reviews
  • Bride polls we run on the site
  • Easy Weddings bride planning tools & registration data

Before we show the final figures be aware that the average figure is taken from couples who have spent anywhere from $2,000 to $80,000 on their wedding. It has taken different lifestyles, circumstances, financial situations and nationalities. Be aware this is only for the wedding ceremony and reception and does not include the honeymoon. That is a whole other expense.

We have broken the figures into 3 categories

  • Average original Wedding Budget (prior to wedding planning process)
  • Final estimated Wedding Cost (during the wedding planning process)
  • The final and actual Wedding Cost (final figure paid for the wedding)

So what were the results?

Average original Wedding Budget (prior to wedding planning process)

$20,913

Final estimated Wedding Cost (during the wedding planning process)

$24,932

The final and actual Wedding Cost (final figure paid for the wedding)

$30,985

Are these figures what you expected?
