(SMH) Til death do us part: weddings with a difference

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Wedding photos in a cemetery, a reception in a courtroom or a rickshaw for transport.

These are just some of the unique touches arranged by Sydney brides and grooms to make their weddings unique....

At the historic St Stephen's Anglican Church in Newtown, couples can walk down the aisle in the sandstone church, then have afternoon tea or wedding photos among the gravestones.

Read it all and make sure to note the average cost of an Australian wedding at the moment (guess before you look).

As an Australian father who has paid for weddings, I would be interested in overseas members’ comments on the average price for weddings here (as highlighted by Canon Harmon)!

Austraian and US dollars close to same value.  Weddings are commonly paid for by bride’s family and “give our darling daughter anything she wants.”

According to an article in the New York Times, the average US wedding costs over $29,000.http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/04/fashion/weddings/04FIELD.html

I read that and was horrified. Sorry to hear that you have it even worse in Oz.

Is the $48K Australian average high or low for the average American wedding? With all of the Bridezilla shows on TV and general craziness, I’m guessing Americans spend about that much, too? Sheer lunacy.
