This evening I was watching the Food Channel’s Unwrapped episode about wedding stuff. At the end of the show, Mark Summers, the host, said that the average wedding costs about $18,000.
Afterward, I happened to switch to HGTV, where they were starting Design on a Dime’s wedding special. Right off the bat, the hostess said that the average wedding costs about $30,000!
I understand that the data these two shows obtained probably came from different sources but for averages, how can these figures be so vastly different? Which is nearer to the actual average for an American wedding?
