$1.56. That’s how much this couple’s wedding cost.
In other words, a brand new buy at the $2 shop would have been more expensive. To put this into context for you, the average wedding in Australia last year was between $36,700 (IBISWorld), and $48,296 (Bride To Be magazine).
That’s a minimum of $35,698.44 cents cheaper than average. One word: Impressive.
I have only been to two weddings. One cost around $50,000 was the whole shebang: upwards of one hundred guests, church, three course sit down meal, full band, expensive dress. You get my drift.
The other wedding I attended was the smaller $15,000 budget, quirky beach wedding where guests Instagram accounts were the official photographer and the dinner consisted of a variety of indulgent cocktails.
