The cost of a wedding in the 21st century can be quite different from when your parents or grandparents had to plan for theirs. One of the biggest debates is, who pays for what? Traditionally, certain types of expenses were divided between HIS & HERS families. This was also possible, because the cost of a wedding was much different. According to an article by Quartz, the average wedding cost in today’s dollars, during the depression-era, was $6,481 versus $29,858 today. So, how do you do it in the 21st century, when so many couples are taking on majority of the financial burden? We’ve broken it down for you, so grab your pen and paper and follow along to make your list go smooth!
We have enjoyed our season so much and we wanted to share just a few of the weddings & the couples we got to share it with!
We hope you enjoy these wedding photos from over the last few months and some of the amazing shots their photographers took!
Haven't gotten married yet or don't see your photos? Don't worry, we'll be doing this again, so be sure to have your photographer send us your pictures!!
You’ve picked your date, now time to tell others to save it too! This post is dedicated to all things stationary, paper and pretty! We hope you find something you love to help set the mood for your special day.
A recent Mixon Brides' Invitation: Photo by Ana Polak Atelier Photography
We at The Pavilion at Mixon Farms have heard many times from our couples how much goes into finding the right decor for their special day. We love that our venue is a blank slate; that can be transformed with a little or a lot of décor. It’s a naturally gorgeous area, however, we recognize adding your own touch to it is very important in making your theme come to fruition. We have also heard how much easier it would be to have everything on site and be able to rent it. We’ve heard you loud and clear and would like to introduce our couples to the NEW Mixon Rental Catalog!
