Just saw a report that the average cost for a wedding is 25,000. Say what? Boy did my wife and kids get jipped!

Shotgun wedding on the steps of court house is better.

Some parents will take out a loan for a fancy wedding, in my opinion is very silly.

Remember, it's all about enticing you to more debt.

Weddings, College Loans...keeping you worried on repayments makes a docile serving class.

If I gave you an airline ticket with a known 50% chance of inflight failure, you'd never fly that trip. Yet, people continue to marry...

That helps with the debt situation also...big houses, with few occupants.

Absolutely crazy. My girlfriend and I have been together for nearly 15 years, no plans to marry. If we did, would just go to the courthouse and use the money we would have spent on a wedding on an amazing vacation and a small get-together with family over the house or something. Don't get the appeal of a big wedding... All that money for a single day, i'd rather get a week or two enjoyment (or far more) out of that same money.

My wife and I were at a big wedding at a large hotel in our town. We were sitting outside. I leaned over to my wife and said "I'll bet this wedding cost about $35,000. An attractive lady sitting in front of us turned around and said to me " I am the wedding planner for this wedding. The dress cost more than $35,000."

True story.
