The whole wedding budget thing is a bit strange when you think about it logically. Who actually thinks that spending the equivalent of a decent house deposit on one day with a group of friends and family is a sensible idea? Yet that is what seems to be the accepted norm.
Don’t get me wrong, I did it too, and we had an absolute blast surrounded by all our favorite people. When I look back, though, I have to try very carefully not to think about all of the other things I could have spent that money on. Otherwise, it gets a little depressing.
