Kate: Umm – well I've heard that it's even up to about £20,000. Yvonne: Well, the average cost has gone up so a wedding this year is actually over £21, 000 Kate: Wow – that's just so much money! Yvonne: But weddings aren’t only expensive for the bride and groom – the man and woman who get married; their guests often have to spend quite a lot too. And that leads us to today's question.
