Wedding Budgets Increasing

For the second year in a row, wedding budgets increased in 2012 according to the Real Weddings Study, published by and The survey of over 17,500 brides who were married in 2012 showed that the average price of a wedding has increased to $28,427.

Here in Orange County, the average is higher. Ranking as the 12th most expensive place to get married, the average Orange County wedding costs $33,848. San Diego shares the ranking with the slightly higher average price tag of $34,136. Los Angeles comes in at 11th with an average wedding budget of $35,308.

With such big budgets, brides are working harder to create a special experience for themselves and their guests. This includes paying more attention to things like the reception decor. Rather than letting things go together willy-nilly, brides are tying things like chair covers and sashes into their themes and wedding colors.

Jennifer Aniston Plans Low-Key Wedding

It seems that Jennifer Aniston and her fiance, screenwriter and actor Justin Theroux, could be getting married as early as this month. The couple are finalizing their wedding plans, and might be getting married shortly after Jennifer finishes shooting on an upcoming film next week.

The details of the couple's wedding haven't been made public, but they are planning something low-key. This is a significant departure from Jennifer's first wedding. When the actress married Brad Pitt in 2000, the budget was a reported $1 million.

This wedding is likely to be small, with an intimate guest list of their closest friends and family. Jennifer and Justin have taken care of some of the final preparations, including choosing her gown and designing their rings. Jennifer is also set to take Justin's last name, though will still do professional work under Aniston.

We expect that Jennifer and Justin will opt for a California wedding with a relaxed edge, but still very classy. Whether they opt for a theme or not, we're sure they'll have a beautifully decorated reception right down to the details.
