According to an article recently published by Calgary Herald, the average cost of a wedding in Canada is $25,800. Their source is StatsCan.
The website MyCanadianWedding.com says that the wedding cost in Canada is between $20,000 and $30,000.
In anycase, that is a lot of Canadian dollars. A survey by WeddingBells.ca reveals what brides and grooms are spending on the weddings they are currently planning. These brides and grooms on average expect to spend $17,300. It seems that they, like the brides and grooms in the United States, have not budgeted for a $20K to $30K wedding. They are hoping to beat the averages and save on their own wedding costs.
Many Canadian brides and grooms have discovered our book “Wedding Planning on a Budget” and are using its strategies to plan a wedding that fits into their personal financial goals.
We hope that more brides and grooms use our strategies to bring down the national average cost of a wedding in Canada while accumulating a small fortune in savings.
