Thank you to everyone who stopped by the blog last week to check out the post as well as comment. Obviously this is a hot topic and our goal is not to scare anyone but to properly inform and educate you. 98% of you are planning a 1st time wedding and may not have friends or siblings who have planned a wedding, so this information is to help you manage your expectations as well as budget properly for your event. Not saying that you can not find some of the services mentioned in the post cheaper, then again that will be based on personal taste and what is most important to you and your fiance regarding your wedding event.
Here are some additional links that reference the average costs of weddings in the US. Again remember most of these numbers are based on an average of 100 - 150 guest count. So you would want to adjust your numbers based on your total guest count.
We particularly like Cost Of Wedding, that allows you to enter your zip code and calculates the cost of your wedding based on the particular area you live in or where you are having your wedding.
Next week we would talk about floral and decor and what to expect as far as prices. What the differences are, are silk flowers really cheaper than fresh flowers and are non floral centerpieces an option.
Thanks again lovelies and remember to always stay inspired
