Cost of Wedding – How Much is Too Much For Your Big Day


We live in a world of instant gratification, where everything is at your fingertips. Over 90% of the population now carries a cell phone, which gives them access to the internet in most cases. Studies show today’s society visiting a new website will click up to seven times before moving on to another source, if they are unable to find what they are searching for. The Cost-of-Wedding Website is a great source to determine if you are in line with today’s current wedding prices.

Charleston Sky sits in the 75432 zip code. According to the website, an average cost of a wedding with a guest count of 100 to 200 is $16,000 to $26,000. Move the zip code 60 miles to Rockwall and the same wedding will cost you $30,000 to $50,000.

In most weddings the Venue, catering, and rentals make up almost 62% of the total budget. Therefore, one should not settle in this department. Make sure the venue can accommodate your every need for the big day.
The website (mentioned above) also tells us the average bride will drive up to 90 miles for their big day. So, here is the big question. Would you be willing to drive 60 miles to save $25,000? For you math folks, this divides out to $416 per mile!

This brings up another very good point. If you are willing to drive to save a little money, then think how this new found wealth could be put to work for your future. $25,000 would be a nice down payment on your dream home. Not to mention, if this short drive could net you this big of a savings on venue and rentals, what else will you save money on for the big day.

With all this new found information, how far are you willing to drive for your wedding?

Charleston Sky is a 90 minute drive from Plano where the cost soars to almost $60,000 for the above mentioned wedding, driving the savings up to over $34,000. This is a significant amount of money, and you have total control of how your money is spent.
