Coming up to wedding season!!! Victoria is getting married in just a little more than 6 weeks.I can’t believe it and yes I am so excited. She’s marrying her first love, she’s never been happier and he is the son in law of every Mom’s dream!!! Could not be more wonderful.
And I wasn’t surprised to see this morning that Victoria is far from average. (as if I didn’t know) Read these wedding stats…and see if your daughter or even you falls under the category of “average”.
Five facts about the average wedding . . . according to a survey of 17,500 brides by TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com:  
#1.)  It costs $28,427 . . . not including the honeymoon.  That's $1,406 more than last year.  If you're getting married in Manhattan, plan on spending about THREE times that much.  In Alaska, it's only about $15,000.     
 #2.)  There are 139 guests.  Utah has the biggest weddings . . . with an average of 209 guests.  Nevada has the fewest, at 64.  The reception catering costs $63 per guest. 
 #3.)  There are usually four or five bridesmaids, and the same number of groomsmen.   
 #4.)  The bride is 29 years old . . . and the groom is 31.  Brides in Hawaii are the oldest, at 33.  And Utah has the youngest brides, at 25.
 #5.)  The average couple has been engaged for 14 months. 
SO…does “average” run in your family? The closest to average for Victoria…is the age. Shes 28. Hes 29. And by the time they get married, they will have been engaged for one full year.
And we’ll leave it at that…LOL!!!
