Weddings are expensive! Even if you’re a guest at the wedding, versus the one getting married. Progressive Leasing has the solution for you!
Lease-to-own purchases can offer so many benefits and be progressive for consumers. Furniture for your home is something everyone needs. But not every person can afford it. That is where Progressive Leasing comes into play! At a price, everyone can work with. Even with bad credit or no credit!
Let’s get back to weddings. Even the bride and groom can lease items for their dream wedding! Beautiful outdoor furniture for those delightful summer weddings, stylish dining tables for any style or color scheme, and comfortable chairs for all the guests! Because every detail that makes the perfect wedding has a cost. Unless they know incredible connections and DIY skills! We commend them.
But that is not realistic for everyone. The parents from My Big Fat Greek Wedding bought the bride and groom (their daughter) a house for their wedding gift. Not an everyday reality.
We are not Leonardo DiCaprio in The Great Gatsby with an endless flow of money to spend on lavish parties every week. Or Leonardo DiCaprio from The Wolf of Wallstreet where he literally throws money everywhere. The average American is most likely more comparable money-wise to the character Leo plays in the Titanic. Or Leo from The Revenant, and finances are the bear that rips him to shreds. Or is that just me?
Remember in Bridesmaids when Wilson Phillips shows up at Maya Rudolph’s wedding? We very much relate to her dad’s reaction. Likewise, to Kristen Wiig during the entire movie.
The average high school student will not have their grandmother show up out of nowhere and announce them a princess as Anne Hathaway was in The Princess Diaries, and become financially set for life. Our Prince Charming will not appear with Cinderellas glass slipper that fits on our tiny, unrealistic feet.
We’re not even the Anne Hathaway or Kate Hudson from Bride Wars. They can both somehow afford to host their dream weddings at the famous and outstanding Plaza Hotel in New York City.
We will keep dreaming though. Thank you, Hollywood for the countless unrealistic expectations.
In the meantime, lots of money goes into making sure the couple and their guests have the experience of a lifetime. TIME shares an article with details on how, “45% of weddings exceed a couple’s budgets and, more worryingly, 23% lack a budget altogether.” As of 2016, according to statistics from the Wedding Report, the average wedding cost in the United States is close to $27,000. Other wedding cost statistics from The Knot argues the average cost as of 2015 is over $32,000.
In all honesty, not crazy to want to splurge on the happy couple and buy them something they doubtless love and will be useful for their future lives together. Not just pretend to love.
The money can accumulate even if it’s not your own wedding. Research about weddings from TripSavvy states, “The average amount each guest spends to attend a wedding is $703.” Almost $1000 just to be a guest! The wedding must be savvy.
Besides that, TripSavvy also shares, “The average amount spent on a wedding gift is in the $70-$100 range.” Which makes sense, but definitely does add up.
Do you need to attend a wedding or five this summer? Thinking, “I have to go to my best friend’s wedding! But how am I supposed to buy a wedding gift?! Which gift should I buy?”
The best buy of course! But rent-to-own instead! Here’s our advice:
First, don’t act as rotten as a wedding crasher and show up with no gift! That is the worst thing you can do.
Even if you can’t afford one, you should not arrive empty-handed. Or, not go because of embarrassment at not being able to afford a gift. The wedding gift purchase shouldn’t be that much of a burden.
The gift should be practical. Something useful they will both enjoy! Did they move into their first home together, but have nothing to fill it with? Their friends and family can’t sit on the hard floor! Modern living room furniture is available for any style they have in mind, no credit required, with payments at an affordable price!
Perhaps the newlyweds plan to soon have a baby on the way? A practical nursery is necessary.
Maybe the bride or groom is experiencing back pain, and cannot figure out what the problem is? It could be their mattress. No one can go to work or live a regular life with constant discomfort! Once you know if a memory foam mattress or pillow-top mattress, is the right mattress for their body and sleep patterns, they can get the sleep they deserve. The happy couple will be constantly thanking you!
Help is available for the perfect gift! Progressive Leasing makes purchasing items practical for everybody. Even catering to the best health and fitness items to buy! Furniture7 has countless modern and affordable items that any newlyweds are sure to love!
What does Progressive Leasing do? Why would Progressive Leasing be important?
Progressive Leasing is becoming well-known and common. Leasing for furniture is helpful for your credit, and leasing appliances is frequent for today’s consumers. In fact, Furniture Today wrote a piece with the president of Progressive Leasing, asking him hard-hitting questions about the process.
With millennial’s being declined for credit more and more over the past couple of years, states Forbes, it’s no surprise that more purchases are now rent-to-own. Progressive Leasing has a “NO CREDIT NEEDED” program if that is the case, but the process also helps build positive credit.
The consumers aren’t the only ones benefiting, either. If a store does not lease, or the customer doesn’t get approved for lending options, many people take their business elsewhere. Or choose to not purchase what they need. But when Progressive purchases the item from the store, and the customer pays Progressive back for the item, and everyone wins! Even retailers have lease-to-own options that work for their business. Progressive Leasing partners with over 20,000 retailers, and, “merchants start approving up to 65-75% of primary denials.”
There is a reasonable 90-day payment option and early buyout after 90 days option available. The money amount, of course, varies on the particular retailer and program.
Try not to stress about the many upcoming weddings all in the same month this summer! Progressive Leasing will let you enjoy the food, dancing, and awkward speeches stress-free.
