What is the Average Cost of a Wedding in Canada?

Congratulations, you’re getting married! But now you’ve got to plan the damn thing. The first thing you need to figure out is your wedding budget and what you’ve got to work with. From the big costs to the smaller items, everything adds up but — with the right financial planning — you’ll be able to make your big day perfect.

A 2017 poll conducted for Global News found that Canadians believe a realistic price tag for a wedding should be just under $9,000. But Jodi Gagné, wedding planner and former founder of Simply Perfect, believes that’s a serious low-ball. A more realistic number? $40,000 to $50,000. That’s based on 100 guests at $200 a person. A bit of a blow to the bank account? Maybe. But realistic nonetheless.

Read on for a breakdown of the average cost in Canada for what you can expect. Keep in mind, Gagné works out of Toronto, and while you may find similar costs in other popular metropolitan areas like Montreal, Vancouver and Calgary, the costs will differ slightly from province to province.
