Shanghai Wedding Stats | An Expensive Hobby

Shanghai WeddingIn a city with an average income of 3000 Rmb I was surprised to read that they spend 160.000 on their weddings.
Some stats from the expat magazine 8Days.

Shanghai Weddings

  • Total number of marriages in Shanghai last Year - 120.000
  • Average percentage of savings young people will spend on their wedding - 91.2%
  • Average cost of a wedding - 160.000 Rmb. (a rise of 30 % compared to last year)
    (Includes interior home decoration, buying household appliances, jewelry and new clothes, as well as paying wedding feasts and honeymoon trips. Excluding the house)
  • Number of Shanghai couples that divorce every day - 75 (Total of 27,374 couples/year) and rising
  • I always wonder by the way why people call this the most beautiful day in their life, blah, blah, blah. It’s so sad, like all days after this grand spending will be less.
