The average Australian wedding costs $36,000. For something that only lasts a few hours, that's pretty mind-blowing.
One couple in the UK has decided to do things differently, setting a budget of one British pound (that's $1.70) for their big day.
Georgina, 36 is an artist and Sid, 39, is a singer-songwriter. They first laid eyes on each other at an art fair in Glasgow in 2009. The rest is frugal history. He proposed in Berlin last year and the couple have settled in Inverness in Scotland.
They wanted their wedding to reflect their lifestyle. They are dedicated to recycling and self-sufficiency.
The couple reached out to friends on Facebook.
