A recent study found that those living in America were saving on their special during the pandemic. The average cost of a wedding in the USA is around $28,000. However, during the pandemic in 2020 and early 2021, those getting married were saving around $10,000.
The study found that 61 million couples are married in the USA and each year more than 2 million people tie the knott. Although the COVID19 Pandemic has been one of the most traumatic experiences in recent years, it hasn’t stopped happy couples from getting married.
In 2019 2.02 million couples got married in the USA. Experts believed that this number would drop in 2020 due to the Pandemic. However, that was not the case, and the number of people who got married increased.
Couples planning to get married were forced to make alterations to their wedding day, which meant they could reduce the amount of money they spent. Due to the pandemic, less money was spent on wedding parties, transport, and also the wedding venue.
The research also found that due to the pandemic couples were more focused on why they were getting married instead of putting on a big show for other people. Those getting married said the pandemic made them look at life differently and made them understand they did not need a big event to share their love.
With the cost of a wedding being reduced in the USA, it allowed those couples struggling to save for their big day to get married quicker.
