There are only a few weekends left of summer, so most people will be eager to be outdoors, preferably at the beach, but it sounds like a lot of folks are going to be otherwise occupied this weekend. That’s because, according to The Knot, Saturday is the most popular day of the year to get married, which means plenty of folks are going to be donning their best dress or suit to watch someone get hitched.
According to The Knot’s registry, a whopping 28,633 couples are getting hitched on Saturday, which means, with an average invite list of 136 guests, about 3.9-million people will be spending this weekend at a wedding.
And things are going to add up financially for all those guests. Each guest spends about $261 for a wedding, including gifts, attire and more, but if they're traveling to a wedding, that number goes up to $901. When it comes to gifts, about 1.3-million will buy gifts off a couples’ registry, and some of those can be quite pricey too. According to The Knot, the most popular registry gifts for couples getting married Saturday include:
