'Market Watch' loans list of '10 Things the Wedding Industry Won't Tell You'
In a recent article Market Watch loans “10 Things the Wedding Industry Won’t Tell You.”
Yesterday the Library of Congress taught us that it is difficult to loan a figure to the wedding industry. A Market Watch article from April analyzes the weddings business, loaning a look at the things the bride and groom client might not want to hear but could help them in the long run. These “things the wedding industry won’t tell you” include:
- â€œWe could go out of business before your big day.â€
- â€œInspiration boards? More like unrealistic-expectation boards.â€
- â€œWeâ€™ll punish you for those heightened expectations.â€
- â€œTax and tip not included.â€
- â€œThe ballroom you chose only permits â€˜approved vendorsâ€™ â€” that cost more.â€
The story is sprinkled with analysis of these little know horrors and statistics. During the recession, for example, the price of a wedding dropped from over $28,000 in 2007 to about $19,500 in 2009. On popular social network PinterestÂ 4.9% of popular pins are wedding related.
