Wedding season is here — and that means more than 67 million Americans are planning to attend nuptials this year.

According to American Express spending and savings tracker, guests will spend an average of $592.00 to attend a wedding.

That’s up 10% from 2013, 75% from 2012.

Those in the wedding party will spend more, shelling out an average of $618.00.

When it comes to purchasing gifts for the couple, wedding guests say they’ll spend about $109.00, but, family members of the bridal couple plan to spend double that amount — about $200.

But cash is the best gift of all — about 55% of couples say this is their gift choice.

And food is where the heart is — 75% of all wedding guests surveyed agreed that delicious food is the most important component of a great wedding.
