I love this infographic created by Wedding Paper Divas on recent engagement statistics. Did you just get engaged? Check out how you compare to other engaged couples. As a recent engaged woman, I am definitely in the 74% majority of couples who at some point said “let’s just elope”.
What I thought was extremely interesting is the average amount of time couples spent per week planning their wedding… 40% spent 10-15 hours over the course of an average of a year! That’s at least 520 hours (or 21.666666 days) spent on nothing but wedding planning!!! Now, I know I’m a little biased, but imagine the amount of time you would save if you hired a wedding planner! I know most of you think it’s not in your budget, but time value of money people!!! It just makes logical & business sense, so think about it.
