Wedded Bliss

June 22nd, 2012

Last week I was watching one of the wedding reality shows out there and it amazed me (in a shocking sort of way) at just how much some people spend to have the ‘perfect’ wedding. I was talking with a close friend recently about how while I can certainly respect someone wanting to have a big wedding with all the trimmings- I have to wonder if at some point it stops being about the wedding and all about impressing this, that or the other one. You know what I mean- the proverbial “Keeping up with the Joneses”.

I’ve seen some absolutely gorgeous weddings where the wedding dress was actually borrowed and they were able to look online and find bridesmaid dresses, plus great deals on the flowers and food. At the end of the day- their wedding was just as gorgeous- and with half the price. It just makes more sense to me. It also leaves more money in the budget for things like a longer honeymoon, or money in the bank for a rainy day- or to purchase things for a new home.

What do you think? Do you think it’s worth it to spend insane amounts of money for one day of your life?
