Wedding by the Numbers

I have a science degree, so numbers and statistics as they relate to the wedding industry have always been important and relevant to me. So, here are some numbers I found in a recent issue of Elegant Bride Magazine that you may find interesting and useful:

4-6 {months} prior to a destination wedding to send Save-the-Dates
8: Minimum place settings to register for
3-4 {stores} to visit before purchasing your wedding gown
2 {minutes} for the ideal toast
50 guests per usher at the ceremony
10 guests can be seated at a 60 inch round table
30-40 guests per waiter at your reception
2.5-3 {square feet} per guest for the appropriate size dance floor
3 {swimsuits} to pack for a beach honeymoon
50 guests per bathroom at your wedding venue
60 to 85 optimal degrees for an outdoor wedding {I think 85 might be pushing it here in Atlanta!}
1.5 {feet} in a chapel length train
