What many wedding businesses will probably find as the biggest shock is the fact that the average cost of weddings hasn’t dropped off due to the economy. Weddings on average cost about the same as ever, and brides who want to cut costs tend to do so through cutting the guest list, not cutting the luxury out of their big day. That said the statistics also show that some regions were hit worse than others, and the cost of the average wedding will depend completely on where in the country the wedding is held.
