How much does an average Australian wedding cost?
I sourced this data from ASIC (Australian Securities and Investment Commission) for the cost of an average wedding. Whilst the data is a few years old now, it's still relevant to see the breakdown.
$18,683 - Food, alcohol & venue
$4,271 - Wedding clothes and accessories
$3,983 - Photography
$2,896 - Entertainment
$2,896 - Flowers and decorations
$941 - Ceremony
$2,534 - Other (cars, hair, makeup, accommodation, stationary)
$36,200 - Total cost

Hope this helps with your wedding planning.
