The average cost of a wedding for post-90s couples in Beijing, excluding the cost of a house, has reached 248,000 yuan ($37,566), according to the Beijing Wedding Expo held at the China National Convention Center on Dec. 3, reported.

The cost exceeds the average two-year salary for men, who average 9,791 yuan a month.

Booking a hotel for wedding can cost as much as 100,000 yuan, accounting for 40.3 percent of the total. In addition, couples spend a lot on wedding celebration services, the honeymoon, jewelry, wedding clothes, and supplies.

In 2016, only 20 percent of the brides chose customized wedding dresses, while the figure has climbed to 45 percent this year and is set to keep rising, said Xiao Changhong, deputy secretary general of the wedding expo.

The price of a customized wedding dress is between 20,000 and 30,000 yuan, but could be even higher if any special design requirements are involved.

Moreover, the survey shows that over 90 percent of remarried couples see divorce and remarriage as acceptable, and 60 percent of them think that a grand wedding ceremony is still needed.

Instead of holding traditional wedding banquets, remarried couples care more about their own feelings. Over 80 percent of the couples choose to take wedding photos, purchase wedding rings, and go on a honeymoon.
