(NEXSTAR) — Getting hitched this year?

Wedding site The Knot recently released its 2022 Real Weddings Study to determine the average cost of a wedding in each U.S. state.

The results show wedding expenses are adjusting back to pre-pandemic prices, as the average wedding now costs around $30,000. That’s a $2,000 year-over-year increase, likely attributable to overall inflation, the Knot says.

The most expensive wedding state for yet another year? New Jersey, where a wedding will cost an average of $51,000.

The least expensive weddings, on average, can be thrown in Kansas, Oklahoma and Utah — average wedding costs in these states are well below the national average at $16,000.

Curious how wedding costs break down?

The Knot also breaks down the average wedding budget — not including honeymoons. The five biggest expenses are venue, live bands, florists, photographers and videographers.

The average American cost for these are:

  • Reception venue — $11,200
  • Live band — $3,900
  • Photographer — $2,600
  • Florist — $2,400
  • Videographer — $2,100

While all of these totals may seem like little compared to the memories you’ll make, experts warn to be careful about over-extending finances for weddings.

Financial outlet LendEDU recently surveyed 1,000 recently married Americans, discovering about one-third of respondents say they went into debt for their wedding.

Eighty-six percent of those who went into debt said they accrued credit card debt, according to LendEDU. On average, those who went into debt for weddings tended to spend about $7,182 more than those who didn’t.

“While I often see shades of grey in personal finance conversations, weddings are one area where I take a very firm stance,” personal finance expert and author of “Broke Millennial,” Erin Lowry, told wedding site Zola. “You should not go into debt for your wedding.”
