Pennsylvania – It’s coming up on wedding season, and if you’re not already saving some cash for a wedding gift… you might be in trouble.

A recent survey by BankRate showed that, between the cost of travel, a hotel room, babysitter, and of course the gift… the average family spends about $372 for each wedding they’re attending.

If you’re actually in the wedding party, the average cost is more than $700.

If you can, try to start saving money to attend weddings, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and showers as soon as the engagement is announced.

Analyst Robert Barba from BankRate conducted the survey of how much people tend to spend.

You can find the full results by Barba on BankRate’s story about it.

Listen to the report from ABC’s Daria Albinger.
