Christmas is the Season to: Get Engaged

So you are going to get married

Christmas Day is usually the number one day of the year for couples to get engaged (followed by Valentine’s Day and Christmas Eve) according to Wedding Wire. The next big step after getting engaged is planning the wedding and the first step in that regard is when and how much?

The Knot does an annual wedding-cost survey andย  last year, the average cost of a wedding was $33,391. And that does NOT include the honeymoon.

How much should YOU spend on your wedding? The Washington Post just today published a great article on just this subject. Their advice? Do what you can afford.

Check out the article at the Washington Post for some great advice on how much to spend on your wedding.

My advice? Do not spend more than $5000. You can have a memorable wedding on that budget and I have officiated many wonderful weddings that cost even less than that.

  1. Got married on November 14th (yes, it was Wednesday). We decided on the Governor’s Mansion grounds as suggested by Jack. We were actually in what is called the Wedding Garden. It was gorgeous, with all the fallen leaves under our feet. A little light mist didn’t move us to the optional gazebo. Jack was great! He is very professional and everything was just what we wanted. We were very satisfied with our little ceremony, and Jack. We had left our phones in the car, but Jack was very accommodating and took a few pics for us. He did a great job as a photographer too! ๐Ÿ˜‰
