Weddings are a big business, and it is easy to see why when you realize that the average cost of a wedding in the United States is now between $25,000 to $30,000 according to industry surveys.  From the dress to the invitations, flowers, music, reception, caterer, transportation, and photography, costs can quickly escalate.  Of course, location plays a large factor in the cost of a wedding, as does the style, venue, number of guests, and individual vendor pricing, but many DIY brides and grooms on a budget manage to pull together a beautiful wedding for well under $10,000 with a bit of creativity!

Weddings have traditionally taken place in a church, a courthouse, or at home, but today some brides and grooms are planning destination weddings to exotic locations for close family and friends.  Non-traditional brides and grooms may also choose to have their ceremony take place in a unique locale such as a museum, barn, art gallery, or botanical garden, and it is not unusual to see the bride wearing a gown with color accents or a casual knee-length number.  Floral arrangements can be tailored to any style or color scheme and have even been known to include unusual elements such as lemons or asparagus!

While there are a seemingly endless number of details to consider when planning a wedding, the good news is that there are also seemingly endless possibilities, making it easy to personalize your wedding in a way that fits both your style and budget.
