The epidemic has plagued Hong Kong for three years. Under the ever-changing anti-epidemic measures, couples also face more uncertainties when they get married.


Marriage information media ESDlife released the "2022 Marriage Consumption Survey" today (28th). The results show that the average wedding expenses of newlyweds soared by 9% year-on-year to RMB 384,366 after a slight decline of 2% for two consecutive years.

Among them, wedding photography has the highest increase, soaring 28% to 25,534 yuan, which is expected to be related to the resumption of overseas wedding photography by Hong Kong people.


Last year, the median number of favors increased at zero. This year, almost all banquet occasions remain unchanged. High-end hotels maintain 1,500 yuan; ordinary hotels, private clubs and special banquets maintain 1,000 yuan; restaurants, lunchtime wedding banquets and western restaurants maintain 800 yuan.

However, in the three cases, the favor for the newcomer was increased by 200 yuan. For attending the reception and wedding banquet, only attending the signing ceremony of the registry office/church, and only receiving cake cards, the increases were 33%, 67% and 200% respectively.


Affected by the epidemic, the number of marriages last year was 26,899. If the increase in the number of marriages in the first three quarters of this year is calculated, the annual number will be about 29,320. It is expected to increase by 9% compared with last year, but it is still lower than the nearly 45,000 marriages in 2019 before the epidemic.

The average cost of marriage rose 9% to 384,000 yuan, surpassing the pre-epidemic level

From September to November this year, LifeEasy interviewed a total of 1,226 couples who got married in 2022-24.

According to the survey, the average wedding expenses of newlyweds rose by 9% to 384,366 yuan.

According to the data of the past five years, the average cost of marriage was as high as 369,166 yuan in 2019, that is, after falling by about 2% for two consecutive years, it has rebounded this year and surpassed the level before the epidemic.

Wedding photography soared 28% to 25,000 yuan

Among the various wedding expenses, the most expensive item is the wedding banquet, which rose 3% to 149,044 yuan compared with last year.

Wedding jewelry and wedding rings ranked second, also rising 17% to 108,988 yuan, exceeding 100,000 yuan.

Honeymoon travel, which ranks third highest, rose 11% to 45,891 yuan, which is believed to be related to the relaxation of entry and exit restrictions.

Wedding photography, which ranked fourth, was the item with the highest increase, soaring 28% to 25,534 yuan. It was also related to the relaxation of immigration measures and the resumption of overseas wedding photography by Hong Kong people, resulting in a sharp increase in expenditure.

The above-mentioned four major expenditures accounted for about 86% of newcomers' expenditures.

Demographic problems plus the epidemic minus the number of marriages

Zhou Zhuoying, director of the business and marketing department of Easy Life Media, said that the decline in the number of marriages is a structural problem, because the population of the 30-year-old age group has decreased by more than 20%, and couples are not in a hurry to get married due to the impact of epidemic prevention measures under the epidemic.

However, the number of marriages this year has shown an upward trend. She expects that as the measures are further relaxed, more couples will organize their weddings next year.

New couples tend to keep everything simple and choose hotels for weddings, an increase of 13% compared with before the epidemic

According to the survey results, about 54% of couples choose hotels to hold their weddings this year, an increase of 13% compared to 2019 before the epidemic.

Another 35% are restaurants, a sharp decrease of 19% compared to before the epidemic.

She pointed out that the number of wedding receptions continued to drop, and couples turned to simple weddings. For example, more people chose to go to studios in industrial buildings, or hold outdoor weddings in swimming pools or gardens of hotels.

Also due to the reduction in the scale of the wedding banquet, the dresses worn by the couple were reduced from 5 sets to 3 sets.

Japanese and Korean couples are the first choice for overseas wedding photography, and they are more willing to buy jewelry to preserve value

The survey shows that overseas wedding photography is on the rise. Zhou Zhuoying said that due to the impact of entry restrictions, it is difficult for the mainland and Taiwan to freely enter and exit. The first choice for newcomers is Japan and South Korea, followed by European countries. Some of them will not consider overseas wedding photography until they are completely switched off. .

In terms of favors, she pointed out that because Hong Kong's economy has not improved, the price of favors has not changed significantly, and only cake cards or relatively simple weddings are given out. Because the amount involved is not large, Hong Kong people are willing to generously send favors.

She also pointed out that compared to wedding banquets and other expenses, newlyweds are obviously more willing to invest in value-preserving products, because jewelry is for personal use and also has a value-preserving effect.
