What lasts less than one day, involves less than 200 people and has an average cost of $25,000?

A wedding!

Yep. For a wedding of 150 people, you can expect to pay about $25K. That’s a fair chunk of change. Once upon a time, the bride’s family would pick up the full tab. Times are changing though. Often, today’s weddings require resources from the groom’s family, too, and some money from the bride and groom themselves!

Think about all that goes into a great wedding and you can see why the costs add up. From big-ticket items like a wedding gown to smaller, but essential expenses like wedding cameras, everywhere you turn there is more upon which to spend.

Fortunately, a combination of good planning and smart budgeting can make the ideal wedding a reality. You might have to settle for something less than a recreation of the Charles/Diana royal festivities and you might have to start budgeting to decrease your living expenses over the course of the engagement, but funding a great wedding is possible. Millions of people get married every single year and most of them seem pretty darn happy with the big day, so it CAN be done.

Don’t let the price tag scare you. Just approach the matter smartly and you can afford a great wedding.
