Weddings don’t have to be expensive

Did you know they refer to it as “the wedding industry?” It’s taken on a life of it’s own, and it ISN’T necessary.

If you want to have a big expensive wedding and you have the money for it, hey, go forit already. But please, DON’T think that it is a necessity to do so. I’ve seen so many movies and heard of so many couples that stress themselves to the max over details…details…details, spending a year or more working on it, and for what? For an impressive event that costs more than the down payment on a house.

I’m really thinking of becoming a “moderate wedding” planner and seeing if I can get some business. I have some great ideas. Here are the important things that you have to decide:

1. The marriage is more important than the reception, so you should be working on your relationship, not driving each other crazy trying to have a perfect occasion and impress someone.

2. You can be happier with fewer choices if you make up  your mind to do so. Seriously, most of the plans could be made in a week, with a lot of it being done on the last day. Just think: no spending evenings looking thru guides and trying to make decisions. You could be happier because you are happy that you didn’t drive  yourselves and everyone else crazy while planning.

3. It’s important to have the people you love and who have loved you BE THERE, so none of this destination stuff.

More later….
