Due to cost, guest lists are shrinking even as costs rise and the average wedding now has 136 guests, while that number was 149 in 2009.
The cheapest place to tie the knot was Utah, where couples spent only $15,000 on the big day in 2014. The most expensive place for nuptials was Manhattan at $76,328.
