The economy affecting weddings and honeymoons

This article talks about the cost of weddings and honeymoons. The average cost is declining: “Spending on the average wedding in the United States fell 24 percent from $28,732 in 2007 to $21,814 in 2008.”

They mention honeymoons only briefly and don’t offer a national average but one travel agent estimated that customers who used to pay $10,000 for a honeymoon are now spending around $8,000. I personally, think it makes more sense to spend more on the honeymoon than on the wedding but I guess I am in the minority.

    Maybe its me, but I think spending that much on a wedding is crazy. Having a huge wedding & reception is simply outrageous, conspicious consumption in today’s economy. Have a smaller ceremony, save your money and do something useful with it.
