The average cost of a wedding in the US today is around $20,000. I could never imagine spending that - if B. and I had an extra twenty grand about, we'd be heading to Europe for the next six months, and I'd tell you all about it when I got back.
However, if I were one of those people who wanted a lavish wedding, I would absolutely want one (or more?) of Maggie Austin's cakes there. Her work is so delicate and pretty - I'd want to spend the whole reception just fawning over it!
