In this 100+ page Splendid Guidebook, you'll learn:

  • What works (and what doesn’t) for each industry segment (no more trying to make planner or photographer pricing models fit your floral business, etc).
  • How to price for celeb clients (and pitfalls to avoid).
  • The pros and cons of working for free, for trade, for press/exposure, etc.
  • When (and how) to offer sales, discounts, or coupons. 
  • Money mindset and common “hangups” people have when setting their rate. (While we believe in dreaming big, you will not find any "Just say it and the universe will manifest it" advice here.)
  • Cross-cultural considerations when talking about money (negotiating expectations, etc).
  • The differing stages & opportunities wedding pros can choose to pursue (mass market vs luxury, licensing, franchising, wholesale, speaking or appearance fees, etc).
  • Kickbacks, commissions, finder’s fees, price fixing, and other controversial pricing methods common in the industry.

The results in this report are based on data from completed submissions of a continuous online survey conducted by Splendid Insights from January 15 - December 15, 2017. The sample was comprised of 16,071 male, female, and non-binary individuals age 16 and older who married in 2017. 

Survey participants were reached via the extensive international network of professionals, suppliers, merchants, and media publishers that Splendid Insights has developed, both within and outside the global wedding industry. Participation eligibility was available to any person who legally married in 2017, regardless of country of residence, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, age, or income level.

Four generational cohorts are represented in this report: Baby Boomers (born 1943-1960), Generation X (born 1961-1978), Millennials (born 1979-2000), and Generation Z (born 2001 or later). 

For this report, marriage relationship types were defined as heterosexual, same-sex, or “other” (in which at least one partner identifies as non-binary).

The survey was administered in English and all currency was denoted in U.S. dollars. 

No incentive was offered to participants for completion of this survey. Incentive was offered to the international network of non-wedding and wedding-related professionals, suppliers, merchants, and media publishers who shared the survey with their communities.

The length of the data collection timeframe and large sample size allowed for more accurate segmentation. 

The margin of error for the Global Wedding Market Report is +/- 1.1% with a 99% confidence level. The margin of error is larger for results based on segmentations of the Global Wedding Market Report, but never exceeds +/- 4.01% with a 95% confidence level.
