We have really interesting stats on the blog today about what it means to be a 21st Century bride from a bridal survey that Hitched.co.uk conducted.
The UK’s biggest wedding planning website, hitched.co.uk, recently conducted a survey of over 3,000 brides to find out what makes a 21st century bride.
The 21st Century Bride survey revealed some exciting new trends in the wedding industry, whilst reinforcing some timeless traditions. The team at hitched discovered that the average length of a relationship before a couple gets engaged is four years and after getting engaged the excited couple will spend 12 months planning their dream day.
The average cost of a wedding has shot up recently – brides and grooms are now working out over £25,000 to have the day of their dreams. This includes paying for the wedding venue and hosting 75 day guests, with numbers swelling to 101 for the evening party. Social sharing is a new wedding trend too – 18% of couples devised their own wedding hashtag, whilst just 2% opted for an ‘unplugged’ wedding.
