Booming Wedding Industry

009 BrideandGroomintheirownworld McClanahanStudio LifeDesign IowaCityIowaUnless you have been hiding behind a bush lately you know that the economy is not doing well. It is amazing how often we get asked if our company is suffering because of the economy. Luckily the economy has not effected us and people are still wanting to have extraordinary events. It was surprising when we recently ran across an article on Kiplinger Online that explained how the wedding industry is doing during this hard time for the economy.

“No such problems for the wedding industry, which is booming, despite the economic slowdown. The average wedding costs $27,000, and that doesn’t include the honeymoon. Overall, about $70 billion will be spent this year as 2.3 million couples tie the knot. That’s good news for caterers, bakers, florists and photographers. Wedding planners are gaining in popularity. Almost 15% of couples hire an outside expert to handle details, saving much wear and tear... and more than a few arguments...on brides and grooms and their parents.”

With the industry being the way it is our clients are working even harder and have less time, hence our services have become more valuable. We are excited to move forward and work with brides and grooms to help them create a magnificent wedding!
