The High Cost Of Weddings

The Onion

July 7, 2010 | ISSUE 46•27

The average cost of a wedding in the United States is $19,581. What do you think?

  • Keith Brenneck Wedding Planner“That’s just if you’re looking for an average wedding. We’ve got unmemorable substandard wedding packages beginning at only 14 grand.”

  • Alice Foder Mica Inspector “Well, in my case, it will need to be much higher. I’m only attracted to needy, covetous women whose wedding fantasies never got beyond the Barbie stage and who never seem happy anyhow.”

  • Damon Lombardo Systems Analyst“But what’s the alternative? Saving $20,000 and having sex with lots of different people?”
