Greek Parents Pick Up Most Bills for Children’s Weddings

January 30, 2020

ATHENS – Perhaps not unusual for a country where children often live at home well into their 30’s, Greek parents still pick most of the cost of their offspring’s weddings, said a survey from the Wedding Circle and Marketing Glasses websites.

That was conducted in September and October of 2019, said Kathimerini, and revealed that Greek parents pay at least part of the bill for 64 percent of weddings and 9 percent pay the entire cost and only 27 percent of couples pay for it themselves outright.

The average budget for a wedding is 13,830 euros ($15,246), with the final cost averaging at 15,383 euros ($16,958.) An average of 6,477 euros ($7,140) is spent on the ceremony, with 1,719 euros ($1,895) going to the photographer and 1,426 euros ($1,572) on the bride’s wedding dress.

The average cost of a wedding in Greece is around $19,337, according to the United Kingdom Alliance of Wedding Planners.
