Weddings are usually an expensive affair, with several people saving for their wedding for years before carrying out the plans. However, a couple from Los Angeles is going viral after planning a wedding on a budget of $500.

According to The Knot, the national average budget for a wedding in America is $30,000. However, Kiara and Joel Brokenbrough were able to throw a wedding at a very minimal budget. Kiara told Good Morning America, "Our goal was to just be as minimal as possible and to spend the least amount of money as possible." They did not want to go into debt even before starting their married life, which comes with a lot of responsibilities.

Kiara started her wedding preparation by getting a dress for just $47 from the digital fashion retailer, Shein. She said, "I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a dress because I had the mindset I'm gonna wear this one time for a few hours." She posted her wedding dress experience in a TikTok video which has gathered over 1 million views. The pair married off the Angeles Crest Highway, with the San Gabriel and Sierra Pelona Mountains in Southern California as a stunning background. They only invited 30 to 40 family members and close friends since they did not seek public permission, according to Kiara.
