With the average Canadian wedding costing $25,000, attended by approximately 140 guests and requiring over 15 wedding professionals/vendors it’s no wonder that 30% of Canadian brides say planning a wedding is more stressful than enjoyable.
The average Canadian couple spends 200 hours planning their wedding; let’s face it for a newly engaged couple working full-time – who has 200 hours to spare?!?! Wedding Planners are no longer reserved for the rich and famous but have become a necessity for the time-pressed couple.
