Wedding Costs Increase

Stat of the Week presented to you by the Wedding Report.

These numbers are significantly higher.  Looks like October is a super-popular month to be married in.  I personally love it, cooler and right before the holidays just makes for a great end-of-the-year celebration!

And love to see that the demand for a Coordinator is on the rise.  Have you noticed more friends and family getting married in October?

  1. Just stopped by to see your blog, very nicely done Michelle. Knew you would be well-written. Happy to make referrals…do you work with brides from San Diego to LA, or what’s your geographic range?
