How to make half a million dollars? Invest your wedding expenses.

According to Conde Nast Bridal Group, “The average American wedding costs $27,852 with 165 guests in attendance.” And that figure does not include the honeymoon. This same amount of
money invested very conservatively at 7% a year would be worth $54,789 after 10 years; $107,778 after 20; and $212,017 after 30 years. Assuming the couple was around 25 when they married and held the money until age 65, they’d end up with $417,069.
