The cost of a wedding

A popular wedding website with dozens of useful articles called The Knot has just released the 10th Annual The Knot 2016 Real Weddings Study, and that means it’s time to talk about the cost of a wedding and spending habits. Surveys of around 13,000 real brides and grooms across the world  found that the overall cost of a wedding has risen to new highs. The national average in USA is over $35000.

Are you  trying to cut costs? Big Thanks Band has a host of ways you can save. We don’t just offer you the best wedding Band Sydney, we also offer smaller packages such as an acoustic duo and of course the good old fashioned wedding DJ.

But remember, the figures quoted for those national costs in USA is only an average, which means, depending on where you choose to wed, your wedding bill could be higher or lower. Tying the knot in, say, Sydney, the cost of a wedding could average of $70,000, while a Newcastle wedding will average at $20000 .

So what trends and habits are causing this drastic leap in the cost of a wedding? Couples today have total personalization and unforgettable guest experiences top of mind. Interestingly, that doesn’t mean a larger head count. In fact, the average number of wedding guests has decreased to 141, down from 149 in 2009, while the average cost per guest has increased to $245, up from $194 in 2009.

With to-be-weds now shelling out more money per guest, they’re more excited than ever to create the ultimate guest experience complete with out-of-the-box entertainment and exceptional amenities, including everything from food trucks, lawn games and photo booths (which aren’t going anywhere any time soon) to aerialists, gospel choirs and live portrait artists. (Read on, right here, for a full forecast of the hottest wedding trends for 2017.) We’ve also seen an overall increase in spending across all reception categories in 2016, including catering, cake, flowers, photographer, entertainment and the venue itself
