I'm just curious, my cousin graduated college this weekend and had two parties. At both parties there were an engaged people. First, is her best friend who is getting married (an arranged marriage). Second, is her cousin from her dad's side of the family. He's marrying some girl she went high school with and doesn't like.
Anyway, they were both talking about there weddings and how many people were going to be there and etc etc. I was just thinking how much work that is for one day and a lot of money to spend for one day. I have a cousin who got married, I was in her wedding and they spent a TON of money on it. Only to divorce how ever many years later. However, my parents had a small wedding and have been married for 37 years.
I just veiw the wedding as my way to get married but my main focus is on the marriage not the wedding. The wedding is one day and the marriage is (hopefully) forever, so why not focus on that? Why put so much time, money and thought into one day of your lives? What's the point?

me and my fiancee both dont want a big wedding she grew up very wealthy and all the weddings she was around were big and she says they are overatted and to much of a hassle. and she also works at a lot of weddings as a makeup artist and says the brides at big weddings can be kind of annoying. so we both agreed on a medium sized wedding not to big and not to small. we are both fairly young im 24 and she's 22 and we both dont have a lot of money i work at a comic book store and she's a makeup artist and for our wedding its my family helping pay for it and we are both going to help pay for it since her family has cut her off finacially and has told us they won't fund one cent of the wedding. we are also saving up to buy our first house and she wants to open up her own beauty salon and i want to either go back to school next fall or become a bartender so we won't have the wedding until two or three years from now1
