Weddings are usually so hyper-focused on the bride-to-be that we forget there's another half to the equation; and a recent Reddit conversation is exploring something most of us probably don't even consider: what a man's dream wedding might be. I expected to see a lot of beer and baseball; but the joke's on little ol' narrow-minded me, because that's not at all what these fellas are talking about.
Statistics might be deceiving, though: The Knot polled almost 13,000 newlywed couples who got married in 2016 and learned that the average cost of a wedding was around $35,329 — a number that also answers to the name of "some people's yearly income." Where is all this money going, you ask? Well, it's not due to a greater number of guests. In fact, the average number of wedding guests is down to 141. In related news, I don't even know 141 people in total.
Rather, the cost per person has shot up, now averaging out to around $245 a head. Couples are dishing out more money to create the ultimate wedding experience for their guests, with insane entertainment, over-the-top food, and even more expensive flowers, cakes, and venues.
What these men have to say about their dream wedding might leave you wondering why the average ceremony comes with such a big price tag, though, because one thing many of these responses have in common is the desire for low-maintenance nuptials.
