I never really got that?
But you know it's mostly girls who want that, so i never thought it'd be an issue for me.
Now my boyfriend worked on a ship over the summer and saved a lot of money. He just came back and proposed, so we're getting married.
But he said he wanted to spend the money he saved on a big wedding and I just don't get why? I'd rather spend it on something else, something more practical.

I don't get it either. I think a lot of it is to do with the way weddings have been romanticized in movies an TV, and women want theirs to be just as extravagant in real life. I've heard of average people spending nearly 100K on a wedding, and not to mention the celebs who spend millions (Kim K, anyone?)
Then there's me, who never even thought about a dream wedding until I was proposed to. My wedding will be small, simple, and to the point. Only 40 guests (just the important people). Free music and photography from friends of ours. Nothing fancy at all.
The money that goes towards a large wedding or an extravagant honeymoon is better spent on something way more important, like a house.0
