Couple tie the knot in an Amazon themed wedding

No primary category set

Let’s see… what area hasn’t Amazon branched out into yet? Wedding planning! They might consider it after a couple from the U.S. tied the knot at their Amazon themed wedding.

Showing that the last two years might truly have had a lasting effect on our sanity, the report, as initially covered by CNBC details how the couple who first met at an Amazon seller conference back in 2016 decided it would only be right to theme their wedding accordingly. The ecommerce themed wedding was said to include tables designated by ASIN, mini Amazon packages as wedding favours, and a Prime Day photograph backdrop.

The now married couple are both ecommerce experts with Jing Gao running her own Amazon business and Eddie Levine being co-founder of a brand management and logistics service provider. They decided that instead of having a boring wedding they wanted something that represented who they were.

Fingers crossed they stay together forever. We all know how frustrating returns can be!

How much does being a wedding guest cost?

According to Amazon, being a wedding guest is not cheap. Amazon Handmade undertook a survey of 1,000 people planning on attending a wedding in the next year found the average person plans on spending an eye-watering £700.50 for just one single wedding. 

The study also found that more than half (54 per cent) felt pressured to spend more money than they would like when attending a wedding, and one of the main expenses is a present for the newlyweds. It could explain why half (51 per cent) plan on wearing the same outfit if they are attending multiple weddings, and how going to more than one wedding within a year would also lead to more than half (53 per cent) spending less on gifts. Considering the current financial strains, I’m sure many guests with upcoming weddings to attend will be trying to keep those costs down.

  1. and then seller support came in and removed the best man, for no reason whatsoever, and just said “appeal”

  2. Presumably all the wedding gifts were cheap rubbish from China that broke after a couple of weeks
