I really don't understand why you would need things like $3,000 dresses, or weddings that cost tens of thousands of dollars... or expensive rings... as if these are things that make people happy?

I find with weddings it's basically become a competition. Who can have the bigger wedding, or better decorations or bigger party.
I recently went to my cousins wedding and it was super nice. Now they made a lot of their decorations. But people were already asking me when my wedding was, and I know if I was getting married they would compare the weddings and be petty about it. Please note, I am NO where near getting engaged even!!!
It makes me sad, partially because I would love to be married. Not for the wedding, but to have a husband who loves me. I've had such a rough go the last few years it would be nice to have someone there to support me.
Anyway, I feel like now it's sadly an expectation, not just from the people getting married, but guests and family members now to throw this huge wedding.
TBH I want a small wedding. I don't want a bunch of people coming, I just want the people who matter to me and who I talk to the most. I don't want to have to entertain people who are going to pick apart every detail.
I think for some people, the material things definitely make them happy. But for me I just want a simple wedding.
I don't think there's anything wrong with big weddings if the people have the money. But many people are now putting themselves into debt just to do it. Makes no sense to me.2

Women only wear the dress once. It is a big waste of money, but they always insist.1
