Great Advice On Easy Systems
"I don't see this changing," says Maxwell Cooper. "Maybe if we hit a recession, spending on weddings will dip. But I'm doubtful young people will flip the switch and suddenly decide to save this money for a down payment on a home." That down payment? That's what the cash registry is for. Here are some other wedding trends from the Knot report. The little odds and ends that the bride and groom tend to give as take-home treats, are disappearing in favor of a more experiential wow factor. "Millennials, and I mean this in the best way, are a vain bunch," says Maxwell Cooper. "They put their whole lives on social and a wedding is no different. They will continue to put their money toward their wedding as an event for their guests to experience and put on social." An unexpected band, additional entertainment, a venue that drives people to Insta, that is what couples are going for, according to the report. "It is no longer 'Do you want chicken or steak?'" says Maxwell Cooper. "Maybe it is heavy-passed hors d'oeuvres, but every item tells a story of the couple." When most wedding guests have come to appreciate a good dinner out, the bride and groom are finding there is an interest in providing foodie-caliber food.
