Create your dream wedding without the price tag

Sharing some Wisdom from WedShed ...

Did you know that the cost of the average Australian wedding in 2015 is apparently $65,482?

That. Is. Serious. Cash. Holy. Crap. Wow.

According to the Bride To Be 2015 ‘Cost of Love’ survey, it’s almost double the average spend of three years ago, which was $36,000.

So what’s changed? The rise in destination weddings overseas is one thing that’s driven up the average. So too has more brides buying couture or made-to-measure bridal gowns.

Six things to think about...

Picture a time, thirty years from now, sitting with your sweetheart watching the sun slowly sink towards the horizon creating the most gorgeous of skies.  You sigh, nostalgia weighing heavily in the evening air, you lean over to your partner and say “remember how good the chicken was at our wedding?” 

Not likely.

Thirty years after your wedding you probably won’t care too much about what you ate on the day.  When the nostalgia hits, it’s not the car keys you will grab so you can head out and re-live your wedding meal.  You’ll reach for your wedding album.

Watch this ... I dare you to not become teary!

The Upcycled Groom








When planning a wedding,the groom can sometimes be overlooked in the wedding planning as sometimes family and friends assume that the bride is the only person organizing the big day. 

How can the groom stamp his own print on the most important day of his life? 


Most grooms often are on the receiving end of this job but how about looking at it a little differently? Can the groom record himself playing the guitar or singing a song to walk down the aisle or at the reception?
