Your Wallet: The high price of matrimony

Next week on Marketplace Weekend, we’re talking about weddings. As Time notes, the average cost of a wedding surpassed $30,000 in 2014:

“Surveying around 16,000 American couples, the Knot 2014 Real Weddings Study also found that 45 percent of weddings exceed a couple’s budgets and, more worryingly, 23 percent lack a budget altogether. Most brides spent an average of $1,357 alone on their wedding dress.”

We want to know, how much have you shelled out to throw, attend or participate in someone’s wedding? What did you spend it on? What surprised you? Was it worth it?
