The Price of Love

Here is a good article for the single Leading Ladies.

“If you have clients who are single or dating, let them know that impressing and marrying that special someone can cost more than $50,000…For the third year, the website crunched the costs that are typically associated with a one-year dating period, a one-year engagement and an average wedding.


In a breakdown, the website explains one-year dating periods often include:

  • up to 50 dates that cost between $15 and $200 dollars each (about 12, on average, are fancy dates, while the rest are coffee or movie dates);
  • weekend getaways that cost a few hundred dollars each;
  • Bigger annual vacactions that cost more than $1,000/person; and
  • Small expenses such as flowers and gifts for special occasions, such as anniversaries and Valentine’s Day.

Then, one-year engagements can include all of costs above, as well as costs of buying engagement rings and throwing celebratory parties. Finally, the average wedding in Canada costs more than $31,000, according to 2014 Weddingbells survey.”
