I wanted to share with you an email from the Knot which show the cost of an average wedding throughout the United States.

So remember this is just an estimate, it depends of what is important to both of you as a coup...

What is an offbeat wedding?


I would define an offbeat wedding as a wedding that is not "the norm". This could mean many things!


Sometimes it would mean a bride wears a dress that is not white like Shelly's wedding
