Quoting I'm Marbles:" Just stating something that I have came across from experience, if you go around flauntig that you have ... [snip!] ... have money more often then not you don't. Especially on here. No one gives a smurf if you have money or if you are dirt poor."
And the extravagance of the wedding doesn't signify the strength of the couple's relationship or the likelihood that they'll stay together. DH and I eloped on the beach. I paid 50 dollars for the dress and 100 dollars for the service of the JOP. Me and DH will be celebrating our 6th anniversary this October.
I went to a wedding last year that was over the top expensive. The couple divorced a few months afterwards, because the bride was having an affair and was pregnant with the other man's baby.
