In some cultures, the groom pays large sums of assets just to get the bride's parents' approval to marry the bride. In exchange, the bride's family sends large sums of assets to the groom's house as a wedding gift. The wealthier the two families are, the more lavish the gifts. Poor families may not give anything, because they have nothing to give and allow the youngsters to get married with their own earnings; and wedding gifts may be as simple as common household furniture.
Guys, if you have a daughter, then would you start saving up money for her wedding day as soon as she is born, or if she chooses not to marry, the money is still saved up for college/future life?

Expensive weddings are a total waste. Wouldn't pay for, ever, not even for my daughter. $2,000 for floral centerpieces for the tables? Hell no. "But, those tables need them as badly as they need decorated white tablecloths with a very high thread count!" How about no to both?
