Oh wow. Do you want to see something really insane?? Go to www.costofwedding.com and enter your zipcode. Evidently, the average couple in Clayhole, KY spends about $18,000 on their wedding and the average couple in Asheville, NC spends closer to $26,000. That doesn’t count a honeymoon or an engagement ring.
I’m curious about where they got that Clayhole statistic. With a little help, I could probably name every person who lives in Clayhole… They also mentioned that 96% of couples in Clayhole spend less than that average, and 4% spend more…. whatever.
The thought of spending that much money on a single day blows my mind.
If I’d had that much cash to spend when I was 20, we would have had the same wedding, but a nicer car.
The thought of all that blown money (and the knowledge that I have 2 daughters who will have their own wedding day dreams) makes me even more appreciative of Malin’s bedtime prayer tonight. She decided to make up her own prayer song this evening. It was pretty typical of Malin – thank you for my sister and brothers and mother and father and birds that sing and sunshine etc. etc, all in a little-girl-operatic voice – until after the elaborate “ah-men” when she added a sweet PS. “You are my only love.”
Is that precious or what?
