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.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
