Money and Weddings

The average wedding costs over $25,000! How much should you spend? Here's how one couple decided.

Weddings can have expensive price tags and granted; it is a very special event. It is believed the average wedding cost 25,000 to 30,000 dollars. So, how much should be spent on a wedding? Here is the process one couple went through to determine how much they wanted to spend. The groom, the bride and her parents had “the budget conversation” on the cost, or how much the bride’s parents would spend. As Jason puts it, “they had a little bit of talk” and that planning the wedding budget was the beginning of planning their financial life together. They give some wise counsel.
