With the Shotgun Wedding Giveaway just a couple of short weeks away we are thinking about weddings and I have some surprising but true fun facts here!

Do all guys get on one knee to propose? Not exactly. I thought that's how official proposals were always done. I sure was surprised  to learn the facts!

According to Men's Health only 76% of men think they should go down on one knee to propose. 2.3 million couples every year get married in the U.S. according to SoundVision.com.

The average cost of a wedding these days is more than $35,000 according to Fortune. Planning a wedding can take 4-6 months or longer according to Celebrations at the Bay.

Do most of us marry our first love? This used to be common, back in the old days, and according to Askmen.com this kind of happiness is still possible today!

No matter how far off track your life may have taken you, it's never too late to regroup, think about what you really want and don't be afraid to do things the old fashioned way.
