Is there anything more exciting than the announcement of an Irish wedding?

Literally, no.

You start planning the outfit, the gift, where you're gonna stay, who's gonna mind the kids and start saving a few bob every week so you can really go all out.

We all know weddings are expensive on the bride, groom and their families. But have we ever thought about how expensive it is for the rest of us? The guests?

This infographic below, made by John Cunningham of The Wedding Band Shop, breaks down the costs of being a guest at a wedding. And it's slightly horrifying. 


A seriously interesting read, that most of us have probably never even thought about before.

It really makes you think doesn't it?
