Do you know that the Average U.S. Wedding Cost of a 2013 Wedding was $26,000?

The estimated average amount spent in Utah for weddings in 2013 is $24,302. Remember this average includes the destination brides that come to the state of Utah to be married. This includes weddings in beautiful Park City / mountain weddings and Southern Utah/ beautiful red mountains and desert weddings. Don't forget the amazing Salt Flatts. Utah's landscape is so diverse and gorgeous that many out of state brides want to be married here.  Wow in 1945 the average cost of a wedding was $2, 240. (The average annual salary in 1945 was $2,900 and the average annual salary of 2011 was $50,000)

Top Priorities For Your Wedding

When my daughter Natalie got engagged I wondered where to start this process of planning a wedding? I asked her to think about her top priorities for her wedding. Then I asked her to write them down so I knew how to budget. It also helped me understand if I had to do one thing that was most important to her I knew what it was. I also asked her what was least important. I made a list and here it is for you to help you in your planning process or to make sure you are on track. 

Place a number of importance next to the item      

 

_____ Beauty Health and Fitness

 

_____  Bridesmaid Dresses

 

_____  Cake

 

_____  Catering

 

_____  Ceremony Site

 

_____ Decorations and Rentals 

 

_____  Flowers

 

_____  Honeymoon

 

_____  Invitations

 

_____  Music / Entertainment

 

_____  Photography

 

_____  Professional Services

 

_____  Reception Center

 

_____  Transportation 

 

_____  Tuxedos

 

_____  Videography

 

_____  Wedding Gown

 

 

I didn't know before I asked Natalie and I thought it was funny that her list was    1. wedding gown   2. wedding gown   3. wedding gown. That helped me know what mattered most - didn't it!

 

What's top on your list?  What are you going to do to make this day unique to you?

You are not going to believe this wedding in Moscow, Russia. It's like make believe! It is one of the most exquisite weddings I have ever seen and am so excited to show it to you.
