Greensboro, NC-- More people are using their vacation time for obligations like weddings and reunions.

The average cost to attend a wedding is almost $340, according to American Express spending and Saving Tracker. It'll cost you even more if you're in the wedding.

As people continue to move away from home, more people are saving days off and expendable income for these obligation.

The CEO and president of Aladdin Travel Ricky Shore said more people are planning destination weddings because they don't have the time to handle all the details. They are also more likely to combine the wedding and the vacation.

"I think people are working really hard and they just don't have time to plan the big home town wedding any more," he said.
