Did you know that the average wedding cost in the U.S. is up to approximately $27,000 broken down as follows?
Why then do otherwise sane people go so crazy spending so much money on what is basically a one day event? It used to be "You only get married once" but the updated saying goes "You only get married 2, 3 or 4 times in your life so why not go all out when you do so!?"
Regarding the $27K wedding price tag though, wouldn't a smarter, better move be to buy a new vehicle, put down a down payment on a house, or take a trip or two somewhere overseas? Sure seems like a lot of money shot to hell just to say "I do. "
