Canadian cost of a wedding 2017

An average wedding in Canada cost approximately 42,400 Canadian dollars in 2017. This figure is broken down into bride and groom attire, ceremony and reception, honeymoon, and other expenses. The ceremony and reception are the most expensive subcategory, costing the loved-up couple 19,925 Canadian dollars on average.

Engagement costs

The cost of a wedding alone may seem high in Canada and this is without the added expense of a one-year engagement period. These costs reach on average 12,505 Canadian dollars. This includes one year of dates, an engagement ring, an engagement party and other expenses such as flowers and a wardrobe update. Out of these expenses, the engagement ring is the most expensive, costing on average 4,858 Canadian dollars in 2017.
