I just don't get it especially since the divorce rate in America is so high. I may be alone in this, but why does the average couple spend so much money on a lavish wedding? Almost every person I have graduated with a couple years ago has been married. They all have these huge weddings. I also know about half whose gotten or going through a divorce. Why? Does money really make a difference? An expensive dress and a 5 tiered cake will not make your marriage a good one.
We didn't have a wedding. Didn't want one.
Let me clear another thing, we are a middle class family and could have afforded a lavish wedding. In fact, our parents wanted us to have a big wedding. We didn't. All we wanted was eachother.
There is nothing wrong with weddings. I would just like to know the point of going in debt because of a ceremony to someone who you will likely be divorcing soon!

Ours was about 5,000 with the biggest cost being our food and hall. My dress was only 500.00 and I have it preserved. People can spend that kind of money if they want and can afford it. I see no problem with it. It is after all only a once in a lifetime event. Supposed to be anyway and that's what my husband and I will do. People don't go into marriage expecting divorce.
