When my DH and I got married we ran to Wal-Mart, bought cheap rings, and then drove to the JP to get married. It cost us a total of $100. We are military and I got word that orders were coming down for me and if we weren't married it could take up to a year to get us together. We had a small wedding planned but did not go through with it. A year and a half later we had a small ceremony with friends and family at Christmas in my cousins living room. Again cost was around $100.
Had we gone on with the other wedding it would have been around $1500. I have heard of people spening $50k or more on a wedding. I just never understood it.
How much did you spend? Was it worth it?

Wedding #1 was paid for by my parents and I have no idea what it cost. That marriage ended in divorce. Wedding #2 cost around $3,000 for everything. We paid for it ourselves. If I had some things to do over, I would, but it's not the wedding that's important; it's the marriage.
