The U.S. Wedding Industry
I started off early on doing some research on the Wedding Industry. Let me tell ya...if even half of these statistics are true, I'm thinking I'm going to be in seriously good shape. All sorts of numbers are thrown around, but I often read that the Wedding Industry does anywhere from 50 - 80 Billion dollars a year. Its also one of the few recession-proof industries around (no matter how bad the economy gets, people still want to get hitched). If you've ever planned a wedding (or are planning one right now), you can probably attest to the fact that opportunities to spend your hard earned cash are not hard to come by. As someone trying to break into the industry, all this info put a really big smile on my face.
