So one of the first things any good wedding blog or book tells you to do is to set a budget. But if you’re anything like the rest of us, you really have no idea where to start. How much do these things actually cost?

Luckily for us, earlier this year Brides Magazine figured out how much Americans spend on every detail of their weddings – from flower arrangements to food. So today I want to share with you the average cost of getting hitched in 2012.

And to make it less… well, terrifying, I put the average costs into a nice happy image. Don’t say I don’t try to do nice things for ya :)

So… that’s crazy, right?!? $26,989 is A LOT to drop on a wedding. But everyone is allowed to splurge a little!
