Spanish weddings: average cost in 2019

The average cost of a wedding in Spain stood at over 22 thousand euros in 2019. This includes the expenses laid out for all products and services, such as clothing, music, banquet and invitations. The price of a wedding can vary greatly and is highly conditioned by the future new weds’ financial means or their taste. Thus, the price of a wedding in Spain could potentially balloon up to 32 thousand euros and go as down as 12.4 thousand euros. Over the past years, the cost of a wedding dwindled steadily, although the costs started picking up again in 2013 and thereafter.

Spain: the Europeans that tie the knot the oldest

The mean age at first marriage in Spain was, along with Sweden, one of the highest in the European Union. Based on this setting, it is no wonder that the Spanish autonomous communities featured quite elevated numbers - particularly in the Canary Islands, where the average age at first marriage stood at 40 years old for men and nearly 37 for women in 2017.

Easy come easy go

Marriage might be undergoing a declining popularity among Spaniards, or so it would seem by its national (heterosexual) marriage figures, which have experienced a slight decrease over the last years. This information translates into a national average of nearly 3.7 marriages per 1,000 inhabitants, with the region of Ceuta recording the highest numbers on the list of marriage rate in Spain. On top of that, Spain also appears at the top of the list of the highest divorce rates in Europe, with nearly 58 divorces per 100 marriages carried out in this country.
