FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Little Elm, Texas) According to WeddingStats.org, the average couple spent between $29,000 and $31,000 on their wedding in 2015, and this figure fails to include the honeymoon. Many factors play a role in how much the couple spends, including the style of the wedding and the season, yet it provides a baseline figure for couples planning to marry this year. In fact, approximately 50 percent of couples go over the allotted budget for their wedding, which works out to approximately 1.3 million couples any given year. Individuals looking to save money on their big day need to visit Wedding Intro’s Pinterest page for great ideas and tips.
“Wedding Intro provides information about what is involved in a wedding, as many couples overlook details which add to the cost. For example, couples need to take into account allergies of the guests. Silk flowers may need to be used in place of live flowers in this situation, and arranging these flowers because much easier, as this task can be handled ahead of time, often at less expense,” M. E. Wilcox, founder of Wedding Intro, explains.
As many couples turn to social networking sites to plan their special event, the Wedding Intro Pinterest page was recently launched. Those who visit find pins featured in a range of boards, including Favorite Wedding Attire and Lovely Little Weddings. Some boards feature only a few pins, as the site continues to expand, yet others have thousands for visitors to explore.
“Browse the page to see great information on all topics related to weddings, as there is sure to be something for everyone. Many associate this network with females who want to share information with their friends, yet Wedding Intro includes information for the groom as well. Check out The Groom and Groomsmen board for inspiration, and be sure to examine the Wedding Tips board for ways to make the day run smoothly from start to finish,” Wilcox continues.
Set a budget and prioritize spending. Some couples find they want their focus to be on the entertainment and hire a big band for the wedding and reception. Others prefer to economize in this area and splurge more on food. Each couple must determine where they want to devote the funds they have reserved, and Wedding Intro can be of help to all.
“For example, couples may wish to have an outdoor wedding to save on a venue. The problem they may encounter is the heels of the bride and bridesmaids often sink into the ground. Purchase some inexpensive concrete blocks just big enough for their feet and have the wedding outdoors. This is only one great hint found on the Pinterest board, and every visitor will be sure to find a number of others,” Wilcox states.
