Summer is in full swing, and we all know what that really means — wedding season.
Yes, the wedding business is booming. A recent survey conducted by the Knot.com showed that the average cost of a U.S. wedding has risen to more than $28,000 in 2014. Even attending weddings is getting expensive. American Express reports that the average American attendee will spend $592 per wedding in 2014, a 10 percent increase from the previous year.
Why are weddings becoming so expensive? Little things add up quickly, and everyone wants the best. In the age of viral social media, everyone wants their wedding to be noticed. For example, take the couple who stood in front of an approaching tornado for the perfect shot or the recent trend of having celebrities “photobomb” your wedding pictures.
While the costs and stakes may be rising in the real world, it’s always fun to imagine the fairytale. For today’s #BuzzLine, we want to know – in only six words – on what would you spend an unlimited wedding budget. Perhaps it’s …
