Since there are no rules
in weddings, these ceremonies can vary significantly depending on the theme and budget, as well as the couple’s taste. So, how much do Peruvians spend when tying the knot?
According to wedding planner Kathy Espath, interviewed by El Comercio, couples in which both work and save money can spend up to 80,000 to 100,000 soles on their wedding.
Espath said that usually the largest investment is done in the catering service at the reception. “The more decoration you have, the more you spend”, she told the media.
“On the other hand, Nelly Fernández, also ‘wedding planner’, highlights that she has organized marriages with budgets that have gone from S / 20 thousand to S / 164,500”, the aforementioned newspaper said.
Fernández also suggests that it is better to hire catering as a complete package. “You can add additional costs, such as liqueurs, which are separate and not included in a catering,” she said, adding that the price will vary depending on the number of people you are expecting at your event.
Other important expenses -which will depend on the preferences of the couple- are in photography and video, makeup, hairstyle, bouquet, dress and music.
