I have a genuine question that I always wanted to ask so hopefully I can get a few answers.
I understand that having a big wedding for certain cultures is a must/custom, but if its not your custom, why do you want an expensive wedding?
Some people feel that they will only be getting married once (hopefully), so they have the "go big or go home mentality," or others just say, "I have always wanted a big wedding." But why?
Did you know that a study done by The Emory University Department of Economics showed that, "Couples who spent less than $1,000 on their wedding were 47 percent more likely to stay together than those who spent over $20,000." And that's because these couples felt they had something to prove instead of actually getting married for the right reasons.
So, I guess this is what makes me wonder even more if that is the reason people want big, luxurious weddings with a big diamond ring on their finger. I understand that it is difficult to to spend less than $1,000 especially since the price of everything has increased drastically. But again, why do some people feel the need to go all out for ONE day.
