Chelsea Clinton’s wedding has been creating news for the elite guest-list the venue and everything in between. Closer home there hasn’t been a dearth of big fat Indian weddings that cost crores to put together. Do you think such weddings are justified? What do you think is the purpose of lavish weddings?
It’s normal if the bride would like the day to be focused on her.
I think it’s okay to go wild and be selfish for one day. BUT a wedding should be focused on love and the people you are sharing it with. Money should be kept to an appropiate budget.
Me and my fiance are planning on having a small wedding when we get married. I have met so many people in my life and all of them have had an impact. I would love to share this moment with all of them but I think a small wedding is better. Just with my best friend and parents. My fiance loves big weddings…so we’ll see! (= I plan on wasting my money on pictures and a movie so I will be able to share with them. Not $183 a plate dinner my best friend plans for her HUGE wedding…but she just wants to show off she is all about being the center of attention I love her so much! Her parents saved money for her wedding. Her college funds were never considered. I know because I pratically live with her. Everyone is different.
I don’t think spending all that money is fair utterly ridiculous. My aunt had a wedding of 540 wedding guests and she only spent $2300. And it looked amazing. People just want the brands. You can handwrite the invitations or get your wedding planner to order them from PAPIVORE. Either way it’s the love along with the people sharing the moment. Money should be spent wisely. I have the money to throw around but I’d rather buy a family a house in africa than waste it on an overpriced salad.
Any one can tell me the dates and some info. about the wedding expo in the coming months?
I want to hv a look.
Where can I find more info.?
