Is a Royal Wedding in a Peon’s Budget Possible? (INFOGRAPHICS)

Well, ok.  That’s a stretch, but the reality is you don’t have to throw thousands of dollars at your wedding to make you happy.  In fact, scientist and statisticians have not found a clear correlation between how much you spend on your wedding and how loving and successful your marriage is.  What they did found is that one of the top reasons for couples to separate is money problems.  Perhaps overcharging your credit cards or overleveraging yourself with debt are not the right steps to get your marriage started on a good foot.

Who needs a lavish wedding?  Apparently the royalty do. The Royal Palace, Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth II (on the Prince William side) and Kate Middleton’s parents coughed up a bit of their respective fortunes to pay for the most anticipated wedding this year.  Unless you live under a rock, you will be hit with some pictures of the royal wedding today over the Internet and traditional news media, and many single ladies are looking at them thinking “my wedding will never be this posh”.  Well, don’t despair.  Here are 3 fun and fact-filled infographics that will help you think about wedding budgets differently.  Enjoy!

  2. Nice Point. Before my wife and I got married, we always thought of
    what future my bring to us both financially and emotionally. Being
    on a conservative family , traditional wedding ceremonies are a
    must in those days which both of us did not believe, because one,
    it can be financially crippling and second, at this day and age,
    you need to start off with something. After 34 years married to my
    wife, I can safely say that it does not matter how lavish the party
    was when you got married- its is how long the party will last
    everyday for the rest of your life because you love your wife
    dearly.
