Good morning.

In a typical week, around 40,000 couples get married in the U.S. But the last year has been anything but typical.

As society becomes more social in the weeks ahead, it’s a good time to be a wedding planner with pent up demand and stimulus checks just looking for a good excuse to justify an extravagant wedding.

But the cost of a wedding only scratches the surface of important money topics for couples to consider before walking down the aisle.

Today’s recommended reads and listens may not be music to the ears of wedding planners, but your wallet will thank you with valuable tips to make tying the knot, not so painful.

🥂 Is there a wedding to attend on your spring calendar?
