How to Survive Wedding Season


Weddings are joyful events, but the costs tend to add up quickly.

Family and close friends of the bride & groom spend an average of $628 to attend a wedding!

ACCC gives 6 tips on ways to survive wedding season:

  1. Set a budget – How much can you actually afford to spend?
  2. Rent or borrow – You don’t need to buy a new outfit for every wedding this season.
  3. Lodging alternatives – Hotels are expensive. Consider Airbnb or VRBO for a better deal!
  4. Booking airfare – Track prices and book far in advance.
  5. The gift – Look for affordable items on the registry if you can’t afford to give a sum of money.
  6. Say no – It’s okay to say no if the wedding will be too much of a financial burden.
