A subject that is close to my heart and my purse at the moment. I'm not asking for any advice from anyone. I will be getting married, and it will end up costing somewhere between 5 and 8 grand for that one day.

Obviously I'm being frugal. From different sources I've found average wedding price stated as anywhere from 12,000 to 18,000. I'm hoping to be around 6,000. But still, when else would you spend that much money on celebrating one day? and is it worth it? I'm interested in being a married woman, not in having a huge party where everything is calculated to impress wealthier relatives and friends. I've suggested having a small wedding with My Mum and Dad and Grandma, and The Ogre's Mum, Dad, Grandie and Sister, but nothing doing, the Ogre keeps saying oh but we have to invite [insert random relative/friend/stranger]. My Mum and Dad keep saying oh but we have to invite [insert random parent's friends I've never met].

but my mind just boggles at the amount of money we will be spending. If the wedding lasted for 10 hours, that's 600 an hour. That's 10 a minute. Thats stupid money. I could buy a CD for every minute for 10 hours for that money. I could buy a car, or have 10% deposit (for this area) on a very nice house.

Still I have the final laugh, spoilt brat (and only child) that I am, my parents are paying for it.

I can totally understand about wedding costs. I'm getting married this September. However luckily I'm getting married in the Caribbean. Therefore everything is organised for you right down to flowers and such. Then all you really need is a party when you get back. Well thats what we're doing and our is only costing 3000 for the wedding and honeymoon. Then my parents are sorting out the reception/party when we get back

I hate to think how much our wedding cost. Too long ago to remember now, though even the photographer was pretty expensive. I can certainly believe those figures.

But, is it worth it? Well, of course, as long as you don't let other people run it completely and you get some say in it all.

That sounds like a really nice charity to give to, but I make donations to The Head Foundation.
