NO offense is meant to anyone as I progress on this. There are exceptions to everything.
I have come to the conclusion that people who want big weddings are making up for something they lack. Either in themselves but usually as a couple. I
realised this when my brother said all is married friends that were happy were the ones that eloped. All the biggest weddings I went to are all now
These are usually orchestrated by people who insist on huge diamond rings as engagment rings. They put a lot of value into a shiny rock. They would be
mad at their mates otherwise, because somehow love is determined by jewelry.
I wasn't one of the females that didn't dream of their wedding day.
I had a nice small wedding for half the budget of what other people paid. Necessity is the mother of invention.
we got away with a lot of stuff that no one noticed. I also got a lot of compliments on a great wedding just because it wasn't standard. IT was
original. I wanted a nice wedding, but I was not willing to break the bank over it.
I once heard a quote that said ( I forget who) that the thing they love most about weddings is that they have absolutely nothing to do with
It doesn't matter how the wedding day is planned, as long as the couple is in a good strong relationship.
But yes, the whole industry is a rip off.
Wait till you have a baby. Talk about another rip off industry.
Having a baby is a much bigger life change then getting married.
If you want some tips to cut corners, I will be more than happy to supply them.
