Basically, we're starting a family next year, both working, I went back to school, we want more free time together, and weddings stress my wife out. Solo, I could swing the work, school, and weddings, but wife + baby trump the bit of extra money the weddings bring in.

Good for you man. We used to do 40-50 a year. The reason why we dropped to 15-20 was because we now have 2 kids. When our first was born, we dropped to 25 or so. My wife is a teacher and is off in the summer. So she doesnt mind doing weddings with me. She just will not do every wedding in the summer with me and will only do 1 a month during the school year. SO I try and only book her with me during the summer and for only 2 a month. Keeping the wife is key
