Who Pays For What For The Wedding?

Mr. Mrs. Ramirez

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?

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.

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!
