Credit Cards for Weddings

Read more about Family Credit Cards

With the start of the wedding season, we've put together our recommendations on credit card offers to help engaged couples plan their wedding.

According to a survey by The Wedding Report, the average American wedding costs around $18,000.

Preparing for your special wedding day can be an expensive process. You need a good financial plan to help you pay for the wedding and use every opportunity to save money. Otherwise, you could enter the marriage heavily in debt.

One way to help pay for your wedding is using credit intelligently. With the current economic downturn, retailers recognize the challenges couples face and have begun marketing credit cards to help pay for a wedding.

While wedding-themed credit cards may be helpful, you may receive greater benefit from regular rewards cards.

The right wedding credit card depends on the couples' needs. We compared generous rewards, low interest rates, low fees and helpful benefits to determine the list of credit cards for weddings.

We recommend the following credit cards depending on your wedding plan:

The Exotic Honeymoon

Use a travel credit card to earn award flights or hotel stays for your honeymoon.

The Monthly Payment

You can use a low interest credit card to help save on interest.

The Cost Saver

You can use a cash back credit card to earn rewards.
