Now that I'm an home-owner, I look at things a little differently though I've always been a realist. When Daisy and I got married, ours wasn't expensive at all. Her mom made her dress, our Unitarian-Universalist Church was where it was held, we didn't have catering, and there was no DJ. It was simple and to the point. Some people mention how much theirs was, and there are often about a seventh or more of what my house is. While we do romanticize weddings, it's really nothing more than a party. I just pity the ones who go overboard, get bitter about it later, and divorce (partly) because of it.
Do you think many weddings are too extravagant for the average person?
