About Wedding (collaboration)

Another powerful collaboration, guess with who? Yes withhttp://stevescountry.com

Wedding is an important day of our life. Depend the people it can be more or less significant. But one sure thing is that its pretty expensive day.

Lot of personal and financial investment. Do it really worth it? I personally prefer to use this money to enjoy a trip or important expense in life.

Than spend an enormous amount of money for 1 day. But as i said depend the people is more or less important. So i respect people who invest so much into it but its not my mentality.

Weddings today can be very expensive. People end up going so far into debt that it can take years to pay for it. Here in N. America the average cost of a wedding is $33,000. The average cost of an engagement ring is $3,100 and a wedding ring is

$2,500. The average cost for a wedding dress is $1,800. Catering for 100 guests runs about $6,000 to $8,000. And many people want something extra, something different to make their wedding stand out more than the average and that just makes it even more expensive.

One man said his friend had spent $5,000 on the engagement ring for his fiance, so he decided to pay more for his just to outdo his friend. Unfortunately people rarely consider the costs, they just go ahead and do it and worry about it later. Does this really make sense? Is this really the best way to start off your marriage?

  1. it is so sad that people start out in their new life together in debt. i feel, why spend all the money on a few hours and pay for it for years. money is one of the top reasons people get divorced and you start out in debt?? i feel it is just a marketing ploy. lol

  2. Hey guys, excellent post! This is exactly what my fiancee and I are currently going through. We made a conscious decision to have a wedding because we know we would have regretted not doing so. We had some parameters to follow though. For starters: We would NOT go into debt. We choose to live within our means. Second, we decided to keep it small and intimate, which helped with the cost. And lastly, we decided that “traditions” โ€” like a fancy cake, limo, etc. โ€” were not worth breaking the bank. That said, we are planning (for what I hope will be) a lovely wedding without going over our budget. We’re also having a honeymoon fund instead of a gift registry which subsidizes the expenses. Great topic you two! I might write a post further explaining this decision soon. But I agree, one day is not worth $30K โ€” unless you’re rich, I guess. Lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Tell me about it ๐Ÿ™‚ Same in my home country, people save just to have a big wedding. I have a cheap wedding because we wanted to have a house after getting married. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I agree with you, the expense of the wedding is what ever you value it to be. Here, in the western suburbs of Sydney we find that finances are tight. So a lot of people host their wedding in the backyard inviting their family and friends.
    They don’t really worry about the catering (at least at the scale of a traditional wedding.) and make it more of a party then a formal activity…
    Now that’s not to say that’s the right thing to do, it’s simply an alt view of the traditional practice.
    Both have their upsides, both have their downsides but what matters most is that its special to you, the individual.

  5. I donโ€™t think weddings need to be super expensive if itโ€™s well planned. For us, we spent $22,000 including my engagement ring and we didnโ€™t end up in debt over it. My dress alone was close to 2K but it was the only dress I liked. We skipped the honeymoon, the DJ and the open bar. Some people werenโ€™t happy about the lack of free booze (they got wine during the reception) but it was our wedding day and thatโ€™s what we chose to do. Iโ€™ve been married to my husband for 3 years so I think that says a lot about the myth that the more money you spend at your wedding, then the happier youโ€™ll be.

      1. Totally agree with you! Sadly this actually happened to me where this girl who I thought was my friend talked about me behind my back! She had nothing nice to say about my wedding. Iโ€™m still angry about how rude she was and our friendship has ended. Trying to let go of the anger but Iโ€™m still not over it. ๐Ÿ˜ค

  6. That is true. We Human always wanted to be better than something that is “Nothing”. Not mandate. Yet why people end up doing so? U ever asked them ? They just wanted the entire people they knew have to remember their marriage and to be viral socially and personally for some time. It gets them nothing. Atleast let us Chase “Nothing” do something that will benefit us.

  7. Well, in Poland we love wedding, and people don’t avoid it. Girls want to have white dress, ceremony and they handle this a little bit of tradition:-) Money for weeding is a problem, but money is always problem.

  8. Never understood the need to “spend” enormous amounts of money on a wedding. If as much time, energy, and determination was spent on the “commitment” to the marriage instead of to “the show”…I wonder what the results would be. Hmmm

      1. No doubt..I was married 62 years..you’d be crazy if you thought there would never be problems. Commitment is how you solve them. Sometimes 60-40..sometimes 70-30…almost never 50-50…but that’s what makes it interesting.

  9. I believe one spends that much amount on wedding so as to get discouraged to marry again and be monogamous. This is the society’s way of establishing the order. For the same reason divorces are so difficult too. ๐Ÿ˜
