Total sales of wedding ceremony halls Japan FY 2015-2019

In the fiscal year 2019, the total sales of wedding ceremony hall businesses in Japan amounted to approximately 247.4 billion Japanese yen. This was a slight increase of around 0.5 percent compared to the previous fiscal year. There were 342 operating wedding ceremony halls in the country in fiscal 2019.

History of weddings in Japan

Traditionally, weddings in Japan were carried out at home. During Japan’s westernization movement in the Meiji era (from 1868 to 1912), citizens learned the concept of a Christian wedding ceremony at a church and began to hold a similar ceremony at shrines. After World War II, it became increasingly common to hold weddings at public facilities or hotels, as the housing situation changed due to the consequence of the war and the following rapid economic growth. The Japanese wedding industry flourished after 1970s when bridal companies started to organize a wedding as a whole event. Since then, a one-day wedding with a ceremony and a reception became the standard.

Modern wedding

Nowadays, Japanese weddings are a cultural melting pot and entirely commercialized. Consumers can freely choose the style of a wedding irrespective of a religion they practice. Some choose to have a wedding at a temple or shrine and have a reception at a hotel or restaurant. Some also choose to have a wedding at a wedding ceremony hall in a western style. A lot of wedding ceremony halls own a wedding chapel and a banquet hall, thus, a couple can continue their wedding from the ceremony straight to the reception. Having a wedding in a resort overseas is also gaining popularity among the younger generations. As a result of a wide range of choices, the total expenses for a wedding differ in price. Companies in the industry are required to remain flexible in order to satisfy the diversifying demands of consumers.
