2009 Wedding Cost Trend

Hello Readers!

According to our source for wedding statistics, 2009 wedding costs dropped by more than 10% compared to 2008 weddings. The average spent on a wedding in 2009 was $19,581.

Many wedding budget items dropped, such as jewelry, gifts, invitations, and reception food.

Interestingly, spending increases still occurred in the photography, wedding dress and music categories.

How can you save money on your wedding budget? Get creative! Decide which categories are your top priorities, and which you can DIY. Ask friends and family with skills or resources to assist. Select a venue that is already beautiful, not needing extensive decor. Have an intimate ceremony at your honeymoon location, inviting only a small group of family and very close friends.

Those are just a few ideas!
