The average cost of a wedding in the US may have decrease with the recession from around 30,000 in 2007 to around 20,000 projected for 2009. Or at least that is what I have deduced from researching various sources.
So here is how this breaks down on average for 2009. Do you agree?
Invitations, Announcements, Thank You Notes, etc., $327Bouquets and Other Flowers, $1,500Videography, $1,311 Photography, $1,500Music, $750 (based on 5 hours)Clergy, $250Limousine, $393Attendants’ Gifts, $308Wedding Rings (Bride and Groom), $1,016Engagement Ring, $3,044Bride’s Wedding Dress, $823Bride’s Headpiece/Veil, $166Bridal Attendants’ Apparel (5 attendants), $790Mother of the Bride’s Apparel, $231Groom’s Formalwear (Rented), $95Men’s Formalwear (Ushers, Best Man), $449Wedding Reception, $7,635Grand Total $20,548
