The essential guide to producing a dream wedding—at tax-deductible costs.
Some 2.4 million weddings occur annually in the United States, with $29,327 being the average bill. While the numbers may vary considerably, there is one almost universal truth (regardless of how the economy is faring): pre-wedding finances look very different than post-wedding finances. Indeed, many couples go into long-term debt, turning wedding bliss can turn into marriage blues faster than a bride can throw back her bouquet.
But this needn't be the case. In The Tax-Deductible Wedding, Sabrina Rivers provides practical advice for producing a dream wedding the tax-deductible way. Most people are not aware, for example, that a wedding or reception held at a museum or national park can mean a big tax deduction. Or that they can seek sponsors (really!). Rivers not only discusses the how-tos, but also gently guides readers through the entire process—and even includes a section on tax-deductible honeymoons! Replete with tips, anecdotes, Q&A sessions, checklists, resources, and more for today's cost-conscious wedding planners, The Tax-Deductible Wedding is one resource no couple can afford to be without.
