A recent study (by XO Group Inc.) claims that the average wedding last year in the Reno/Tahoe/Sacramento area cost a whopping $28,028. Wow!
Here at the Antique Angel Wedding Chapel we would like to challenge those findings. The average wedding at the Antique Angel costs less than $300. That's right: $300. And for some weddings, that includes the dress and tux!
It has been our observation that you don't need to spend a lot of money to have a beautiful wedding, and you certainly don't need to spend a lot to have a happy marriage. We get frustrated when statistics come out like the $28k figure, because it promotes the belief that for a wedding to be nice, it has to be expensive. Or that your ceremony will be less valid if you only spend a few hundred bucks. That is just pure nonsense!
The important factors in a wedding, and the foundational pieces of a strong marriage are not white lace trains or twinkling centerpieces. They are love, trust and communication. If both the bride and groom have an abundance of these, a jeans and t-shirt wedding can outshine the glitz and glam of an unloving $28,000 wedding, any day!
At the Antique Angel Wedding Chapel we want to give you something special: a beautiful wedding without the usual expense. Spring is here, and that means the Riverwalk is the perfect place to exchange your vows. You bring the love, trust and communication (and the marriage license!)--and we'll take care of the rest.
