Weddings Month --
Here are things from the Washington Post that cost as much as the average U.S. wedding:
Food truck: $34,000
Some couples rent food trucks as a low-cost catering option at their weddings. However, an entrepreneurial couple could buy their own food truck for the price of a wedding. This Craigslist posting in the D.C. area for a food truck with a 14-foot kitchen includes a griddle, deep fryer, stove, salad bar unit, freezer and more. Parking permits and taco shells sold separately.
Feed 350 school children for an entire school year: $35,000
The average amount spent on catering at a wedding back in 2016 was $71 per guest. Now, the full price of a wedding could provide food for 350 school children on the weekends. According to its website, the nonprofit organization Blessings in a Backpack provides food to 89,000 children who get free meals at school but can't always count on being fed over the weekends.
Tiny home: $35,000
In a tiny home (typically 300 square feet), you'd have no room for wedding gifts anyway, so good thing you're skipping the nuptials. The Tiny House Blog puts the average contractor-built tiny house at $35,000, though there's quite a range out there.
Go on $35,000 worth of extravagant dinner dates
For about $16,000, two people can dine at the world's 12 most expensive restaurants -- according to a list from Forbes -- in New York, Spain, France, Japan, Beverly Hills and more. That leaves about $20,000 left over for airfare and hotels, which should do just fine as long as you're not flying first-class and staying at the world's most expensive hotels.
Four Super Bowl tickets on the 50-yard line: $36,000
For $36,000 or more, you and your significant other can go -- and bring your best friends along.
