Your Wallet: Wedding bills are gonna chime

Marketplace Weekend Staff Apr 3, 2015

Next week we’re talking renewal — a clean slate, a new beginning.

For many people, a new beginning might be a marriage, which usually means planning (and paying) for a wedding.

Whether it’s your own, or someone else’s, a lot of money changes hands.

We want to hear about your experiences with weddings — whether you’re the one walking down the aisle, or just shelling out for plane tickets or plates from a registry. 

How much money are you spending? How are you resetting, financially? Write to us here, or tweet us, we’re @MarketplaceWKND.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
