The (rising) cost of weddings

Getting married this year? 

Hope you saved up for it…a LOT!

Let’s crunch the numbers with TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com:  

This year the average wedding will cost $28,427 (NOT including the honeymoon) .

That’s $1,406 more than last year.

There are on average 139 guests…and the reception catering costs are about $63 for each guest. 

There are usually four or five bridesmaids, and the same number of groomsmen.   

The average bride is 29 years old and the groom is 31.

BTW the average couple has been engaged for 14 months…and may need to be for LONGER after this report!
