BOSTON (MainStreet) -- Wedding couples who let a case of cold feet cancel their plans will be lucky if their relationship is all that gets lost in the exchange.Wedding jitters and nullified nuptials are just fine when it's Julia Roberts' Runaway Bride lacing up the track shoes or Simon Pegg's Run, Fatboy, Run character on the lam from responsibility, but it can become a costly proposition for grooms or brides looking to bail out before the big day. The mean cost of an American wedding last year, including the engagement ring, was $26,984, according to TheKnot.com ( XOXO) and WeddingChannel.com's Real Weddings study. The fact that the total price dropped 5% from the year before likely comes as little consolation to former couples whose wedding investments were wiped out by second-guessing and doubt.
