Check out this huffington post article!!
“1. Men who spent $2,000 to $4,000 on engagement rings were 1.3 times more likely to end up divorced than men who spent $500 to $2,000. Women who received expensive engagement rings also experienced higher rates of divorce.
2.Women whose weddings cost $20,000 or more were 3.5 times more likely to end up divorced than women who spent $5,000 to $10,000. (According to The Knot, the average cost of a wedding in the U.S. is $30,000).”
This is also followed up by saying that if you spend $500 or less your divorce rate goes up as well.
Did you know the average U.S. wedding costs about $20,000!!!!!! That is a lot of money! I think weddings should be a non-stressful day to enjoy with friends and family. Normally when you are engaged people will offer to help with anything, or you can call some friends to help. This will save a lot of time and money. Your guests will probably enjoy your wedding if they have contributed to the fun day! This day is for you, don’t over do it with stressing about the money. Enjoy your wedding!
