Wedding Survey

Wedding Survey

According to The Knot’s 2017 Real Wedding Study, Americans on average spend $33,391 on matrimony. Considering that most weddings are four to five hours long, newlyweds are ultimately spending $8,347-$6,678 per hour just to tie the knot.

If you’re married, do you think a traditional wedding is worth the price? If you could do it over again, would you choose to do something else instead? If you’re not married, do you anticipate wedding plans or will you do something else with your money?

These are the things TopCashback wants to know. And who better to ask all these questions to than you?

Take a brief survey and enter for a chance to win $25 cash. Please be sure to submit your email address at the end of the survey because two winners will be selected at random on 09/26!

Participants are required to answer every question to be eligible for the giveaway. Responses are voluntary and will remain confidential. All answers will be compiled together and analyzed as a group.

Second marriage. Have been married 35 years. Relatives paid paid for everything. Someone even paid for our marriage license. We honey mooned in a tent, at the lake.

My first marriage only lasted 22 months, my husband was taken from me due to heart attack at 43. I had twin boys by him and still miss him til this day!
I have since remarried, happily to a wonderful man for last 16 years. He certainly helped me with my boys. Getting to the what survey was about - I had a very small moderate wedding that was actually thrown together in less than 2 weeks! What a wonderful ceremony and party for minimal money. Second marriage - we were married in my home with only two friends and the rest family. Wouldn't change a thing with that one either. Big weddings, expensive weddings don't normally last very long this day and age. So sorry to say.

Although I do want a nice wedding, I don't want it to be outrageous. First of all, I was one female that never wanted to get married!! Then I was with my last child's father for 13 years, the last 3 he was in jail. Anyway I found out that I really didn't know him !! He has cheated on me, had a selfish attitude, etc. But the older I got, meshing with my faith in God, I knew that I had to change! My kids are getting older and I want them to know what a real family look and feel like. Moral of the story is that I am now a 39 year old woman who is happy and ready for my big day!! Thanks!!

A wedding is not about the amount of money you spend, or how fabulous everything is.....It's about spending the rest of your life with the person you love.....You don't have to impress anyone -- you don't have to even invite anyone, if you don't want to -- it's supposed to be about you and your partner. Don't spend a ton of money, and don't stress yourself out trying to please everyone else. Just please yourself :)

I was married young. We were a couple by the time I was 16 and before my 18th bday we lived together and he proposed. We held off on marriage for 2 years. We were basically broke. My dress was the cost of fabric. A friend made it. I did my own hair and makeup. Mostly none of our family came. (My parents are uncivilized and despite being divorced for years us kids ultimately suffered as I refused to have 2 weddings and 2 receptions especially since neither paid for anything. Which was what my stepmonster demanded) From that moment on I changed my "ideal" wedding to one where I didn't have my day ruined and focused on what married. We had access to my husband's old bosses yacht. We paid for fuel, a captain, a minister. We got married on the Chesapeake Bay. Our 2 closest friends were there. We all slept on the boat, we bought them dinner as a thank you and went to the zoo the next day. Fast forward- We've been married over 12 years, together for almost 16 and have 2 kids. We never had a honeymoon. Most of our family wasn't there or friends. We were 2 broke kids who made it work. The lady at the courthouse even tried talking me out of marriage and scuffed at how young I was. Needless to say I think we did fine. We didn't do fancy rings but simple ones. Only thing I wish we had was a honeymoon since we couldn't afford it and I found out I was pregnant 2 weeks after we were married. I actually was throwing up in the parking lot my wedding night not realizing it was "morning sickness.We never had a honeymoon and now it's family vacations. We also outlasted both our parents failed marriages. Which is ironic since according to statistics we are even more likely to get divorced ourselves. I agree though the survey was vague and hard to truly account for other factors into cost. Ps: My wedding reception was 2 weeks later. My biggest cost was the food and even that we had an amazing food spread and i'm told the amount we spent for what we had was about 75% Less than most people and caterers charge.

I have been married twice. The first one was a moderate church wedding and it lasted 2 years. The second on was a party of six in a church with a borrowed dress. We have been married 34 years and still counting. Someone asked me how I knew he was the "one"? I basically said if you are willing to take death for him, then he will be the one.

I actually did wedding again to celebrate our 10th anniversary at the same place with the same food. And we gonna do this every 10 year. Total wedding cost me about $5000 but the reception place was around $3000. Paying $3000 every 10 year isn't bad at all.

Survey was vague in questions. Didn't ask how many times married and how many weddings I had. Gave info on last wedding only. Consider this for amending and add options for multiples, might temper out your survey, last was cheapest.
