Ok, went over and visited costofwedding.com. You should do that too! They give the average price of a wedding in the US as close to $29,000. However, the majority of couples spend between $14,366 and $35,915 while their wedding budget is typically 50% less than the amount spent. This does not include cost for a honeymoon or engagement ring.
It’s not good when when your wedding budget is less than the amount spent. You need to make a plan and stick to it!
Tip: Figure out what kind of money you really want to spend on a wedding, even before you talk to whoever might be helping you pay for the wedding. Base your budget decisions on what is appropriate for you and your fabulous relationship and your stage of life. Your parents may have more to give you. You may have more to spend. But that decision may not be right for who you are!
