One of the hardest parts of our job is to explain the costs associated with a Chicago wedding. Big CIty Bride does not create the costs…but we can educate, prioritize and propose options for every element of your Chicago wedding day. Weddings cost a lot of money and Chicago weddings cost more than most. The Knot magazine just released their 2012 bridal survey with the 25 most expensive places to get married and Chicago came in #2 with an average cost of $49,810! Here’s a glimpse at what the rest of the country looks like…but keep in mind this is the average!
Well under the New York City Manhattan wedding budget and well over the national average wedding budget of $28,427, Chicago wedding planners have a lot of responsibility. The logistics and challenges of city wedding planning, the increased costs and taxes, and the high taste and expectations make for amazing events. We are honored to be a part of the Chicago wedding industry and to have our hand in some of the very exciting Chicago weddings included in this survey (both below and above the average.)
