#1 Financial Solution for Expensive Weddings

May 18, 2022

Expensive wedding venues

Expensive weddings get more elaborate by the year. Although putting on a wedding is exciting, it can also break the bank. In fact – in 2020, the average cost of a wedding was $20,300, and in 2021 $22,500. Of course, it depends on what state you live in and how big you want to go.

The Biggest Problem ­– Cost of Venues

One of the most significant costs when planning a wedding is the venue. The venue alone, including the location, food, drink, linens, chairs, and tables, runs between $12,000 to $14,000.

Expensive Weddings Mean Outside Venues 

  • Hotels & Banquet Halls
  • Farms, Barns, & Vineyards
  • Country Clubs, Parks, & Gardens


The #1 Smart Solution ­to a Costly Wedding

Instead of having an expensive wedding at an outside venue, consider having it at your home if you have enough room. A wedding in a beautiful backyard is something to remember and cherish.

Plus, when you upgrade your home for any special event, you’re building equity.

A cash-out refinance can help you with these upgrades to get your home ready for the big day. Consider these home improvements:

  • A fully equipped outdoor kitchen and covered entertainment area
  • How about a luxurious built-in pool – perfect for day or evening weddings
  • Beautiful landscaping with arbors covered by blooming flowers
  • Lighting for the front and backyard if it’s a nighttime wedding


Quick Tip – if you’re planning any home renovations before the wedding, have them completed months in advance. That will remove scheduling stress.
