A lot of people – well, a lot of women anyway – dream about the big day they walk down the aisle. The flowers, the shoes, the favors, the food, the dress (!) – these are all the things we tend to fantasize about. What never breaks through that dream bubble, however, is how much it will all cost. If it did, many of us would probably skip the wedding and elope.
According to Weddingbells magazine, the average cost of a wedding in Canada is $32,358. In purely objective terms, that is a lot of money for the vast majority of people. The real sticker shock, however, is actually a whole lot higher. Your $20,000 wedding? It may really end up costing you at least three times that much. The same goes for the dress, the food, all of it.
