Each year, the team over at WeddingWire conducts their annual Newlywed Survey in which they poll couples married between January 1st and December 31st about all kinds of things related to planning and paying for their weddings—the info is then compiled into a pretty digital booklet that breaks down all of the wedding stats and trends for that year.

Just today the 2015 report arrived in our inboxes and it’s filled with lots of fun and interesting data. There’s even a few Philly facts in there: Our dear city is listed among the most expensive markets to get married in, and, on average, Philly couples spend $34,982 on their celebrations.
