Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding has become quite the spectacle to watch unfold. As the big day approaches, it's only natural to wonder just how much money the event (that's piqued the interest of millions across the world) will cost. From the flowers and the cake to carriage rides and food trucks, there's a lot to keep track of. Luckily, UK-based wedding planning site Bride Book has taken the liberty of tallying up exactly what they believe the royal wedding will cost.

Using an analysis of over 17,000 weddings and a review of more than 70,000 wedding industry suppliers' price estimates, Bride Book determined how much each aspect of the royal wedding can be expected to cost.
