There is a price on love, but it's got a lot less $0's than expected.

Australia has some of the most beautiful backdrops to have a modern wedding. On the coastline we have glorious beaches (some countries even ship our sand overseas to lay on your own beaches) and in land you can hold the most picturesque country affair.

But does the price of that landscape come cheap? Apparently it does. Research conducted by has suggested that one in five Aussies planning a wedding in the land down under spend less than $5,000. 

A further 28 per cent, who have married since 2010, kept costs to no more than $10,000.

And even though cost cutting was a priority, sixty-six per cent of brides were still able to have their hair done and 69 per cent still hired a venue.

Interestingly, 28 per cent made their own invitations to save costs, 17 per cent had a friend make the cake and 19 per cent used their own cars or DIY’ed flowers so they could spend their budget elsewhere.

ServiceSeeking believes that couples are now putting their hard earned cash into larger morgages, rather than forking out a motza for one day.
