Last year, the average U.S wedding cost around $30,000 with approximately 140 guests attending to enjoy the special day with the bride and groom. That’s a lot of hard earned dollars to sink into a celebration, so how do you make sure you get value for the money and end up with the wedding of your dreams?
If you are busy thinking about your wedding you have probably got lots of wonderful ideas about the big day itself. There’s so much to discuss and decide on – what date to get hitched, where to tie the knot, and tons of other important stuff that is required to ensure your wedding goes off with a bang. What with outfits, flowers, and cakes, the list seems endless, and at the back of your mind you realize that your wedding day is going to cost quite a few dollars!
When it comes to helping out in the days leading to the big event, and on the day itself, the “wedding party” comes into its own. A posse of the bride and grooms nearest and dearest, often consisting of the mother and father of the bride and groom, best man, ushers, maid of honor, bridesmaids and a cute ringbearer and flower girl or two. That’s plenty of helpers’ keen to do their utmost to make the day one to remember for all of the right reasons. So how do you say thank you to them all and show them just how grateful you are?
