Fun Facts: The Big Day

Posted by Kim on Mar 31, 2016

For the final installment of our series sharing the results of our 2015 Newlywed Report, we’re talking about the nitty-gritty details of 2015 weddings. One of the most surprising details we learned in our survey was that nearly three-quarters of couples go over-budget. This just reinforces the importance of setting a budget early on, and using an online tool to help you stay organized. Also, we found it interesting that the average number of wedding guests is 120. How many guests are you having at your big day? Learn more interesting wedding details in the infographic below. And don’t forget to check out our 2015 Newlywed Report for lots of helpful info!
