January is the time to plan weddings. I know first hand because I’m going through it right now with my daughter. Or to be more accurate, my wife is going through the planning process. I’m somewhat involved. Mostly with the checkbook. Here are some current average expenses for a wedding these days!

Wedding dress: $1,450

Cake: $410

Music/DJ: $971

Reception: $14,540

Flowers: $1,500

Honeymoon: $6,000

Bachelor party $800 (mostly $1's and $5's!)
