Average Cost of an Australian Wedding

How much does a wedding cost

 

Budget/DIY is the lowest cost possible if you do it all yourself or use previously owned items that do not need to be purchased

Low end is the lowest cost you could hire a business to complete the task but this may be someone new to business.

High end is the most extreme example i.e. celebrity makeup artist
