Evelin and Corey start planning their dream wedding

In the clip for the upcoming episode of
90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way,
Evelin and Corey scout wedding locations with their celebrity wedding planner, Carolina Muzo. Evelin reveals that her wedding planner had “planned a wedding for Victoria’s Secret angel.” Muzo is checking out Corey and Evelin’s beachfront property but quickly decides that their property won’t be a good choice for a wedding.

That being said, the average American wedding in 2021 costs around $30,000, according to Wedding Wire. That means that the average Ecuadorian wedding for 2021 should cost around $15,000. So is $50,000 or even $26,000 way above average for Ecuador? It definitely is and is even way above the average for the United States.

Can Corey afford to give Evelin her dream wedding?

According to Ecuadorian culture, it’s custom for the groom and his family to pay for the wedding. Corey will be paying for the entire wedding, according to Evelin. Corey wasn’tepi langit excited about the price. He told TLC cameras, “My brother perenggan a wedding in the United States, it cost him $5,000. Ok? Don’kaki langit tell me that we’re going to spend fifty to sixty thousand dollars on a wedding in a third-world country.”
