Today is my fake anniversary (long story). Happy anniversary, sweetie!
One thing I truly don't understand is how people spend so much on weddings. Seriously, I think my cousin's wedding cost $50,000. How is it in any way worth that kind of money for a ceremony that lasts like an hour? Who started this ridiculous precedent???
We had a civil ceremony, which I was very happy with. It cost under $100 and it was just about us... which made sense, considering WE were the ones getting married. We later had two separate parties to celebrate, one for family at my parents' house and one for friends in Vegas, but they were reasonably priced and relatively low stress, considering I didn't have to worry about any details of actually getting married.
For those of you who have had the big ticket weddings, do you think it was worth it?
