I just read an article stating that the Wedding industry adds over $1.6 billion (yes, that’s a B) to the US economy every year.
almost 3 times the annual operating budget of the Saskatoon Health Region
10 times the amount that George Bush recently committed to peace talks and aid in the Middle East
Enough to immunize one hundred million children against childhood diseases
With 21% of the global population living on just $1 each day and a divorce rate in North America hovering around the 50% mark, maybe we should consider spending more time preparing for marriage and less money on the wedding.
