Wedding Costs (as a guest)

You may be surprised, but being a wedding guest does not come cheap. You have outfit expenses, hotel, transportation, jewelry, babysitter/petsitter, food expenses and so on. You add all that up and it comes to about $500 – that’s without a gift to the bride and groom. You can definitely cut back on some of these cost.

– Wear something you already have or borrow from a friend.

– Share hotel/transportation with friends that are going.

– Bring a cooler with snacks and food.

– Take the kids with you or leave them with family that won’t cost you the babysitter fees.

And for a more detailed look at these expense, check out this super cool infographic from Mint.com
