Wedding Planning Tips

Wedding Budgets Continue to Rise

According to the annual Real Weddings Study, the budgets for weddings have continued to grow through 2012, with Connecticut brides spending an average of $38,009 on their big day.

The survey, conducted by TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com, asked over 17,5000 brides about their 2012 weddings. The results showed that the average amount spent on almost every part of a wedding has increased over the 2011 results.

So what does this mean for a bride planning a wedding in 2013?

Well, for one, it can give you an idea of where your wedding budget it likely to be spent. For instance, knowing that the average amount spent on a venue is just under $13,000 can help you prepare yourself for where your money will go.

Another thing to consider is your per guest costs. With whole weekends of entertainment growing in popularity, the per guest spend has increased to $204.

Of course, no matter what your budget, wedding planning can be great fun. There’s no better way to get your wedding planning into gear than to attend a Wedding Steps Bridal Expo.
