Planning a wedding myself at the moment in the UK and can’t believe how crazy the prices become when you mention the word “wedding” to some vendors. Found this infographic about how married people actually save over the long term, which made me feel a ilttle better, so I thought I’d share – cheers!

I definitely think getting married can save you money. Though getting married is not technically the same thing as having a wedding . . .

That’s interesting…still, it’s mostly counting on people not living together until they’re married which isn’t true for a lot of people

My SO has a lower-paying job, so we (I..) figured out if we get married by the end of the year, we’ll get about $3,500 back in taxes. So being married (not just living together) can definitely save you money if you’re not making the same salaries.

I think that’s definitely low-balling the average cost of a wedding (though it’s obviously regional). The benefits are definitely there, though.
