Now that you’re wearing that new shinny rock on your left hand, it’s time to start planning THE BIG DAY.
Well, according to a new poll from Minted Weddings, your magical, dream day is going to cost you, A LOT. Just over $42 thousand to give you an idea. If you’re like me, I had to re-read that last sentence. YES, the average DREAM wedding will cost $42 PLUS thousand dollars!!
Why is it so expensive for a “DREAM” wedding? The study found a few core desires for a wedding: open bar, live band vs DJ, flowers, and formal attire. Pair the couple’s desires with their lack of willingness to compromise on things, yeah, it’s going to raise the cost. The study found that 2 out of 5 said their venue was non-negotiable. Which to me means, that they would pay more for the venue or change dates to make sure they secured their DREAM venue.
Now of course, NOT all weddings are going to cost an upwards of $42K, but even when scaling some of those core items, the price tag is still a hefty bag to carry.
This entire study was about a couple’s IDEAL or DREAM wedding, so it does make sense that it’s probably going to be pretty pricey.
