EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – It’s no secret that Millennials are doing things differently than previous generations, including how they’re getting married.
A new survey asked Millennial couples about their “something old, something new” approach to getting hitched.
A survey from jeweler Jean Dousset found more than half of the 1,800 couples were engaged more than a year.
Less than one in five Millennial weddings are paid for by the bride’s family alone.
Almost half of the couples paid for their own wedding, splitting costs evenly.
The average cost of a wedding is nearly $11,000.
Less than half of Millennials have religious ceremonies.
Honeymoon funds are also growing in popularity, with couples asking for donations instead of gifts.
