- Wedding: October 2013
All of us are planning weddings, and sometimes it gets stressful, whether it’s finances, coming to an agreement with your FI, Family issues, Issues with the Groomsmen or Bridesmaides, Where to get your dress. This list goes on and on, and we do all of this stress why, for 8 hours of happiness, which people will forget 15 minutes after the leave the venue.
I am 45 and my parents will be 70 next year. I askesd my mom what she did for her reception and she said, we had it in the church basement, we had Cake, Mints and Frape. No stress!!!
You talk to other women my mother’s age, oh we got married at home and had the reception there, or we got married at home and had the reception at mom’s house. We had cake and punch.
So the question becomes, where did the over the top drama come from….. If we were to look at other countries, such as Australia, Denmark and Africa, I wonder if they go thorugh all of the headache and stress we go through for this big day. Which is really like Prom…
I wonder how many brides are so caught up in the process that they forget the person and the life long covenant they are making. So many marriages end after the first year after speding thousands and thousands of dollars.
Not saying I have the anser, but…………….. WHAT IF LESS WAS MORE?
Not teling anyone to pair their big day down, it should be as extravagant as you like, but we have to remember at the end of the day….. it’s about the committment you make, not the cake, not the dress (which you will never wear again) not the shoes, not the decorations, but the life long commitment.
