- According to an estimate, a wedding’s average cost is as much as $28,400
- Spending on the nuptials again increased in 2010, after recession
- Spending on the wedding does coincide with return of the general confidence of consumer
Average cost associated with wedding could be as much as $28,400 according to an estimate, and near $26,000 by one other estimate. Spending on nuptials again increased in 2010 after plummeting during financial crisis and once again is reaching the record that was set before financial crisis.
The president of theweddingreport.com said that these days, the groom and bride are paying the major cost.
Much of the spending on the weddings comes because consumers generally are regaining confidence that is only part of the larger trend. Increase also has been abetted due to the companies selling wedding accoutrements, ranging from ring pillows to gowns.
Then it is the sites of social media where the couples who are planning weddings could get to know endless ideas regarding entertainment, attire or décor, without any attached price tags. For example wedding boards at the Pinterest drive much traffic to the purveyors of goods related to wedding.
When one is determined to have the wedding costs kept in check in spite of much pressure to spend more, experts have many suggestions to give.
Marketing director for Association of Bridal Consultants, Dena Davey said that the first thing to keep wedding costs to a minimum is to keep the guest list to a minimum. In 2012, spending for each guest reached to $204, according to an annual survey. So, potential savings from small ceremony are quite clear.
One other way of saving is by thinking outside box on the matter of timing. Most expensive tend to be weddings on Saturday evenings though Sundays and Fridays are more popular nowadays, according to Davey.
One also might get bargains when married in off-season. December and June are much popular for weddings, therefore, vendors might be willing to reach some negotiation when talked to at any other time of year. One great way to give your guests a way to remember your special day while also saving you money is with a wedding photo booth in Vancouver.
It is suggested by McMurray to take a look on the wedding elements which do not necessarily have to be individualized or custom-made as the areas where saving is possible.
When dresses or other custom things are concerned, there isn’t much space for DIY whereas favors, invitations, music and photography are all easily made through the technology.
Though there are many websites and blogs that could stimulate you into spending a lot, there also exist sites which point to the ways of saving e.g. Bridalbrokerage.com, tradesy.com and projectwedding.com.
Anyways, the biggest suggestion is to focus on what you are doing and not those things you will have in the surroundings. Your day of wedding will probably be magical, ideal flowers or none of them.
