Wedding inflation

by Suw on April 19, 2007

I had an email yesterday from journalist Elaine Pearson asking:

I'm currently putting together a piece for the family magazine Take a Break called The Great Wedding Rip-off about how some businesses seem to go in for a spot of wedding inflation. As soon as they hear the W word their prices go up.
I was wondering if you've come across anything like this in your preparations at all.

Well, I've seen a lot of high prices, yes, but I've not really seen people bump prices up as soon I mention the W word, mainly because I've been too up front about it. I've said 'wedding' immediately, and so the only prices I see are those that take the W word into account.
Anyway, I've just had a lovely chat with Elaine, who kindly listened to me rant about how expensive weddings are, and I promised to blog this in case any of you have experienced wedding inflation yourself. If you want to talk to Elaine about it please email her as soon as possible – I believe her deadline is pretty soon.
