Like why should that matter? It doesn't have to be. That is not what is important about it. People are so shallow.

As someone who is getting married and planning a wedding - the big weddings are so materialistic and frankly, they are contrived. It should not be about the wedding, the food, the dress, etc. The wedding should be about two people coming together in love and commitment to each other, and a merger of their respective families.
Those shows on TV about people planning weddings make me sick, to be honest. They go to so much trouble and worry about every little thing. Things that do not need to be fretted about.
My own wedding will be fairly small. Just the important family in attendance and no more than 50-60 guests (friends and +1's) at the reception. I KNOW that it will be perfect no matter what. My parents never even had a real wedding - they just signed the license with an officiant down at the government office. They are still married.
People go into debt when planning weddings like this, and that is a terrible way to start out your life together. No wonder why divorce rates over money issues are so high. All that money should be put towards a house or some other big, necessary expense or into a savings account (if you already have a house).1
