Do everything possible not to postpone the event

The young couples who are excited for the wedding do their best not to postpone the wedding evening, even at the cost of a significant reduction in the number of guests.

The survey, which was attended by 100 couples who have been married in the past two years, shows that 40% of the couples were forced to postpone the wedding, with 15 percent of them delaying the event for up to a year from the original date.

In religious couples the situation is different, where 96% of the events took place on their planned date and were not postponed at all.

At the same time, it can be seen from the data that about half of the events took place in a more limited format, with 30% of respondents answering that they reduced to half the original number of guests, and about 10% claimed to have reduced 90% or more of the number of guests and had a limited wedding.

Dreaming of profiting from the event but actually getting into debt

The couples, who dream of a new and exciting couple start, also dream of making money from producing the event and saving it for the benefit of future plans they have but in practice many of them get into debt due to the expenses of hosting the event.

The survey shows that 38% of the couples planned to use the event money in order to create initial savings for their life together, with 45% of the respondents saying that before the wedding they hoped at most to cover the wedding expenses.

Despite the good will, the data show that about a third of the couples exceeded the budget, with the majority exceeding about 30%.

By the way - when the corona delayed the wedding, only 55% managed to meet the budget set for them.

The parent-sponsored event?

Married people who cannot help with parental funding, take out loans if necessary.

The survey shows that 85% of the couples were assisted by their parents in financing the wedding, with 62% of them indicating that the parents helped to a great or very great extent.

At weddings of older couples aged 30+, there was relatively less help from parents than among younger couples.

The economic issue often becomes a major issue, with one-fifth of the marriages reporting cash flow problems in the pre-wedding period, which is also probably why about 20% of couples had to take out a loan before the event. The parents are the ones who took the loan for the couple.

What is being argued on the way to the canopy and who is not willing to give up a financial agreement?

61% of the couples reported that they had prepared for the wedding together, compared to 25% of the couples where the woman was the one who took the lead.

Funding at the expense of future gifts
