  • Weddings in Iowa and Nebraska are the biggest, averaging 200 guests.
  • The average engagement ring costs more than $5,800.
  • Most brides have one do-it-yourself element, such as favors or escort cards.
  • “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” and “Lady in Red” are the two most popular first dance songs (even though 87 percent of brides wear white).
  • Only 19 percent of couples rely on a wedding planner.
  • Ancient Romans broke a cake over the bride’s head to symbolize fertility. Today, brides must be fortunate to have only a little cake smashed in their faces!
