Finding that special one you want to spend the rest of your life with is magical. It gives your life such joy, happiness, and comfort that it’s only natural to want to celebrate a proposal with everyone you hold dear. Weddings are the one day in our lives we get to go all out, dress up in our fanciest clothes, bring together everyone we care about, and live out a fairytale.
Weddings are the perfect ending to your dating relationship, and the perfect prologue to your marriage, but they don’t often come cheaply. The average cost of a wedding today exceeds what many people pay for a down payment on a house. This isn’t to say that everyone goes in expecting to pay $20,000 to $30,000 for one event, but that they lose sight of their budget along the way.
