Hire a wedding consultant, work on a guest list, develop a wedding budget, choose a reception facility, choose a photographer and a videographer, choose a florist, coordinate the wedding date with the church, choose a band or disc jockey and book hotel rooms.
Thanks to a booming wedding industry, an engaged couple can plan virtually every detail imaginable for their special day. But not the weather.
The average couple in America spends a whopping $28,732 getting married, according to costofwedding.com. Although some have that much to spend, there are just as many who would like to save money for other essentials, such as a honeymoon or house.
