Cover all your wedding costs and get down to the fun of planning your day.
Whilst a marriage may cost as little as $250 in some Australian states (because all you need to legally say "I do" is a celebrant and two witnesses) many couples understandably want the celebration of their marriage to live up to the promise: Best. Day. Ever!
And what does that look like for most modern couples? It's their take on what they think traditionally makes up a wedding - from gowns and cakes to flowers and cars. And most importantly, throwing one hell of a party to celebrate with their favourite family and friends.
In 2019, this came to an average wedding price tag of $32,333. With nearly 40% of couples paying for their wedding on their own - and the average honeymoon adding another $7,307 on top of that - it's no wonder you might be asking, "How are we going to pay for this?"
Australian couples spend most of their wedding budget on:
Wedding Venues - $15,264
Photographer - $2,963
Videographer - $2,702
Wedding Dress - $2,649
Band/DJ - $1,651
Wedding Flowers - $1,618
Other - $5,486
On average, couples end up spending 50% more than their original wedding budget:
Original Wedding Budget - $22,055
Adjusted Wedding Budget - $26,895
Final Wedding Cost - $32,333
90% of couples take a honeymoon and 84% take it immediately after the wedding:
Average Cost of a Wedding - $32,333
Average Cost of a Honeymoon - $7,307
TOTAL COMBINED SPEND: $39,640
Going into debt for a wedding might sound extreme, and it’s a decision that should be considered very seriously - but for some couples it may just be the most sensible solution to give them the capacity to pay for this one-off, large upfront expense.
