These three zodiac signs spend the most on their friends’ weddings

While it's always nice to be invited to a friend's wedding, it naturally means you'll be spending a lot of money. Between your bridal shower and bachelorette party, you can spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on gifts, food, and travel expenses. This does not include the cost of the wedding day.

Even if you're just a guest on a friend's big day and not part of the actual wedding party, the bill can still add up quickly. You may need to buy a new outfit or book a hotel, and you'll also need to spend some money on gifts. Expensive wedding costs may annoy the pragmatic, thrifty, and stingy signs, but for others, spending money on friends is truly a cause for concern.

According to astrologer Stina Garbis, certain zodiac signs are more than happy to spend money to attend a friend's wedding, which has something to do with their ruling planet. Certain heavenly bodies are associated with generosity, which means they are more inclined to pick out the finest gifts from their friends' registers.

There are also signs that take a friend's wedding experience very seriously. They're committed to romance, but they also want to help make sure everyone makes great memories. So that means they're more than happy to invest their time, effort, and cash.

Here are the three zodiac signs who spend the most on their friends' weddings, according to astrologers.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

Cancers take their wedding guest responsibilities very seriously. As a water sign ruled by the moon, they will start crying the moment their friend announces their engagement until they go on their honeymoon.

Garbis says this overwhelming sentimentality often inspires Cancers to spend a lot of money on wedding festivities. This sign loves love, so they tend to make a big deal out of everything.

If the bride wants to travel abroad, Cancer won't hesitate to book a flight. These friends wouldn't think twice if they wanted everyone to have matching clothes, hair, and makeup.

"This sign loves to be in the presence of their best friends," says Garbis, which means they also tend to be generous gift-givers. They'll pick out the chicest (and most expensive) dishes in their wedding registry to show they care. For Cancer, anything less than the best may feel like a cop-out, so they almost always break the bank.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Leo always sees a friend's wedding as a fun excuse to spend money. As soon as the invitations arrived in the mail, they started scheduling hair and manicure appointments and put a lot of effort into finding the perfect outfit.

If you attend a wedding and the bridesmaid's dress is expensive, the fiery Leo won't even blink an eye. They'll swipe their credit card worry-free because it's all part of the experience for them.

Garbis says Leos are also happy to take on the role of planning get-togethers and bachelorette parties, especially if it means they can turn it into a mini-vacation. Instead of having a quiet bachelorette party, they insist that everyone fly to Las Vegas, like the bridesmaids did.

Leos love to have fun, but as a sign ruled by the warm sun, they also happen to be extremely generous. "They like spreading their money around and making their friends happy."

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

Aquarius are always willing to spend money on their friends, especially on big events like weddings. They'll send RSVPs back and look forward to happy hours and dance nights, but what really gets them excited is what happened a few months ago.

As a fun-loving air sign, Aquarius will look forward to all the festivities and will feel excited, not stressed, if the bride wants to go above and beyond. "They'll pay everyone to go see their friend's bachelorette," Garbis said. "They'll also find the best place to stay for everyone."

Aquarians think weddings are the perfect excuse to get together, but they also want their friends to feel special. Aquarius is ruled by fun, creative and savvy Uranus, who is also associated with the 11th house of friendship. When you add all of this together, it means this sign likes to prioritize their friends, even when things get expensive.
