Because we want to ensure that our wedding day is one to remember and so it should be. It goes so fast.
When I got married and looking at food, I just felt the prices were high so I asked on of the the caterers to quote for a weekend meal for a business meeting rather than a wedding. Guess what, for the business meeting, the cost was 50% less than for my wedding. Same menu!!
Guess what, I did not order with them.
I even got a discount on the honeymoon from the travel agent by using the "we can afford it along with everything else and the sad look on my future wife's face"
Haggle and shop around and enjoy the day. It goes very quickly.

Welcome to the world of wedding rip off
Is better if you get your girl to Las Vegas and have the wedding over there.
Unless you are lucky and have your father in law pay for everything.

we might have a 'to heck with the cost...it's a once in a lifetime splurge'!!
then again Promotion is a biggie,
betcha the "Wedding of the Century", with Prince Charles & Princess Diana
got your attention & generated at least a passing daydream
the next shot-in-the-arm will be when one of the royal lads gets to place his ring on his princesses finger.
the wedding promotion cycle that the royals generate, be it Britian or wherever,
sets a new standard for the worlds idealists to work from
"New Beginnings" is the theme
and that pristine bubble will not be popped by objectivity....
besides, most of the costs are deferred on credit cards, a device that makes for gratification
