I’ve seen some of the budgets for these huge weddings.
Quite a few are over 6 figures.
Beach front 12 bedroom house rented for 10 days for a huge wedding on the beach.
It’s crazy what some people are willing to spend on a wedding.

I’ve paid for two weddings.
One was around 35,000
Second one was about $2,000
My youngest, wanted something a lot less elaborate.

I don’t remember exactly what mine was all said, but it was a lot less than most of our peers because of how we approached it. All the couples that did really, really expensive ones got divorced. Our closest friends were a couple where the husband had a good business but the wife’s family was scraping by. The groom’s family insisted on going all out with the Rolls, a two week honeymoon in Italy, etc. The family spent a fortune in cash and the groom himself footed the last 40k on credit. Started off their marriage with 40 grand in debt. They did well, but it was still unnecessary. Anyway, it didn’t last. I don’t think it’s a perfect science, and don’t mean to imply that, but I do think many people get swept up in the event without realizing what it’s all about.

$35,000?!?
Yikes
Duuuuude.

That's nuthin.

You need to check out a traditional 3-day Indian wedding complete with an elephant.

The food costs more than $35K.

Wow, just wow!





How did you find this wedding photo of me and seedy? :dunno:
You could have at least put the obligatory “makeup” on my face.
Stumbled upon it at a sight called “Sopchoppy Memories.”

we spent it all on a 2 week honeymoon on 3 islands in Hawaii instead of a traditional wedding. If I recall, it was $10k but worth every bit. No regrets. My dress was $50. The morning of I went to the salon and they did my makeup (looks good, huh?) and put a crown of Hawaiian flowers in my hair. They did pics for us in the garden and on the beach. Took Seedy’s parents to a luau that night for dinner .

yes, same groom. Shave and a haircut in between photos. You know how guys can get fussy about what they look like in photos. :lol:

I noticed that Seedy hasn't posted in this thread. We're gonna need you to provide proof that he is still among the living... :popcorn:
I noticed that too. Maybe he's in denial. :dunno:

Funny you should ask about proof of life today. Just this morning before work I had Seedy hoisted up in the bucket of the tractor so he could use the 13' pole saw to trim the tree limbs hanging over the garden. I asked him to please not die today as I'm not prepared to take on your conference calls in an hour. :lol:

You both should know better than to raise him up in the bucket like that. It's much too dangerous. Next time, have him put a 24' extension ladder in the bucket so he can climb that and use a simple chainsaw rather than the pole saw.

Something like this...

Why men die younger than women.
