Report: Americans spending less on weddings

Posted: Updated:
(KWWL) -

Weddings are big business, but the amount of Americans trying to be thrifty when it comes to their big day is the number going up. 

According to The Wedding Report nearly 40% of couples who got married last year did so for less than $10,000.

The report is based on wedding industry trends from government data, as well as daily surveys of couples.

It also found that the average amount spent on tying the knot in 2014 was about $26,400.

That's fairly in line with other studies, including a recent one from The Knot, which found the average to be right around $31,200.
