I think so. For us it was.

YES. This is something I worried a lot about because I’m generally very practical/frugal. So spending this much money on ONE day? crazy! I was even more worried because my husband’s attitude all along was he was fine with a wedding… for me. But he didn’t want one. He didn’t think he’d enjoy it at all. Afterwards? He told me it was TOTALLY WORTH IT. (I agreed). 🙂

YES!!! All the stress, money and more stress was totally worth it. Almost a year later I get butterflies thinking about our wedding.

I would love to see the answers in a poll, if you’re up for it, OP! That’s a really good question. I’d love to hear from both sides.

Wedding $1,000.00

Fijian Honeymoon $13,000.00

Getting married without stress or debt Priceless.

For us, no, it wasn’t worth it. I wish we had saved the money and “eloped” with parents like everyone advised us to. You could still have a pro photographer, but all the stress of the usual planning process would have been gone. I get a little wistful thinking about how much simpler it would have been!

@automaticflowers:  this

Though our pictures came out beautifully and I’m happy we’ll have those to remember our day by, we would not have gone through with the wedding had we known about the stress and family drama we’d get with it.  We weren’t able to enjoy each other as much as we would have liked on our big day.  If I could turn back time, I’d disregard what my family wanted and elope.  The funny thing is… after all was said and done, my mom finally realized how much unnecessary drama there was and how much the wedding stressed me out, which brought us closer.

I’d also like to see this as a poll. People seem so much more inclined to respond to polls than to type our their responses.

For us, it really was worth it. I don’t want to do it again though.

Dropping our original wedding for an elopement and European honeymoon was worth it. No debt. No stress.

I’d do it all over again so yea, I’d say it was worth it. It was one of the best days of my life and I’ll value those memories forever.

It’s worth it if it’s what you want. We loved our wedding, and having the actual ceremony and celebration with our friends and family was so incredible–it’s something I’ll never forget. But we also had total control in planning our wedding, which helped make it a truly enjoyable event rather than an obligation. I know that marriage is, at the end of the day, just between you and your partner. But for us, I don’t think getting married would have felt nearly as special without our wedding. However, I think people achieve that special feeling in different ways. Which circles me back to my original point – yes, if it’s what you want 🙂

Worth it, but I never want to do it again, and if I have to for some reason, it’s going to be done completely differently.

Yes absolutely!  We have been together 8 years (married for 7months now) and were thinking about marriage 3 years ago but decided to hold it off for a few years and have the wedding of our dreams and still have a good chunk of savings in the bank. 

The wedding day did not dissapoint – sure little things went wrong but it truely was the best day of my life so far 🙂

I still love looking at the photos and videos and love thinking that when we have children they can see it all too.
