So my boyfriend and I decided not to have a wedding, we really love each other we just agreed that the money we will spend on a wedding can be spent to do other things like traveling to different states together or continue saving and buy a nice house. He is still planning on buying me a ring and I will be buying him one as well and we will go to our county court and get a marriage certificate so I can change my name. We decided on doing this because my parents has been together ever since high school and they never had a wedding. His auntie and her husband has been together for a long time as well and they didn't have a wedding either.
Hearing stories about how some women wants a huge wedding and expensive things I don't really understand why. I mean if you are marrying someone you love why care for expensive dresses and where it's located?

I do because if I make the vow it's for life for better or worse... It means something to me. a lot of people come from broken homes so the what's the point... of spending that amount of money. 50% of marrages end in divorce so sure why spend on a wedding. Most likely when girls fuck 30 dudes in a year the family will care, but not as much as inviting all your friends and family for a wedding that cost $100 a plate. and later get a divorce.. I dated a girl for 7 years and never got her a ring because she was not the one... it sucks being single at 27 but what would be worse is I had to spend 2000 for divorce papers. I am not gay but I see more love in them then most stright people. And another thing I spend about 2000 a year on going to weddings unless it's one of my close friends I usually don't bother anymore. I have wasted 6200 on people who got divorced within 5 years. that's my rant you struck a cord with me0

It's important to me that I get married. The wedding doesn't have to be a huge deal.
I'm currently planning my wedding for 300 guests. If I had my way (which, despite what everyone says, the bride doesn't really have her way :p) I'd get married in my back yard with like 10 people and then we'd roast hot dogs.
But he wants the big church wedding with a billion guests. So... we're having a big church wedding with a billion guests :/ lol
But as long as we're married at the end of the day... That's what matters.1
