The big day is all about celebrating the coming together of two people. Plus 345 of their closest friends eating bruschetta in front of a steel band beneath a canopy of fireworks and doves.
That's a lot of finger food.
This has gone up a whole 21% from their last study on wedding costs in 2014.
The biggest single cost is the venue hire which comes in at an average of £3,738. Doesn't sound like a great deal? Well add that to the food, booze, dress, ring, portaloos and photo-booth.
The survey also found a trend of 'minimoons' where couples go on a short break immediately after their wedding then a longer honeymoon later on. No wonder generation Y are all still living with their parents then. Parents who, co-incidentally financially assisted 48% of couples' weddings.
