I know a guy who got married this Summer............

Only 10 people attended his wedding....................

Thats include him and the bride..........................

The other 8 Guests.............................................

Guest 1: His Mum.

Guest 2: His Grandmother.

Guest 3 & 4: His Aunty and Uncle

Guest 5 & 6 : His Sister and Her Husband

Guest 7: His Brother.

Guest 8: His Best Mate (Best Man).


The Bride had no family and friends attend - ZERO.

When questioned about this - the Groom explained she has no family - all dead - and she did invite her best friend but she was away on a holiday to Myknosos Greece that week.


A small ceremony at the local church.

But to the local pub for a wedding reception - which including a breif speech by the groom - and then they just all enjoyed a meal and some drinks and put the Karakoe music on into the night..

A few locals at the Pub joined in the fun.

Honeymoon .............Weekend down the Cravan park - packed lunch.

Maybe they did what they could afford so harsh to judge..day sounds depressing as fuck tbh though.

Average wedding these days cost around £15k plus.

Fucking hell............nowhere near that.

£50 reception fee - to marry them.

£200 - drink and food back at the pub.

£200 - Caravan for the weekend - and some entertainment.


Bobs your uncle..................


WEDDING ON A BUDGET.

Not be harsh - the bride had no family - they all dead - so she was lucky to have anyone turn out for her.

237 guests. Southern European wedding, they tend to be big. There were close to 300 invites but not all could make it- It was a bit complicated b/c I did not have it in the United States where I live and so quite a few of the invites couldn't make it. It did save me a fortune; if I had hosted it here I probably would've been bankrupt.

Fuck getting married.

I'd rather spend the money on a house.

It's not really the "getting married" that's expensive, it's how you get married. I've got friends that the father of the bride spent $40K-$50K for their daughter's weddings, and the most expensive wedding I ever attended was my nephews where the bride's dad had to have parted with at least $200K for the entire thing.

I've been married 3 times and all of them were civil ceremonies with a Justice of the Peace presiding and only family and close friends attending. The receptions for the first 2 were held in a small hall and catered which I paid for. The last wedding was held at my now late father-in-laws property in the country. It was officiated by a local JP and we had a large crawfish boil, Cajun music and lots of cold beer to celebrate it.

With divorce rates like they are, I don't understand dads laying out tens of thousands of dollars for little Muffy to get married to Biff and then watch it dissolve over the course of 10 years into divorce.

Put a down payment on a house for the couple if you want to do something real nice for them instead of one night's worth of partying.

Looking fairly likely for next summer. Will be a very small group of people in Hong Kong for the wedding itself. Fewer than 10 as there'll be no pomp. But I'll have to have 3 receptions/parties, one where we live, one at her home and one back in the UK.

Yeah, a civil ceremony or small ceremony with only close family & friends (as @Beefcake suggested) is what I'd go for.

Getting married doesnt have to be a huge expense but getting divorced can be costly :lol:

I know of a guy who was best man for his mate 3 times. When he was asked to do it on the 3rd occasion he said "yes, he would do it, but it is the last time".

True story.

Been best man at one. I'd say at least 50 people or so at that particular wedding. It was pretty boring, though. Real vanilla wedding with no real standout thing to it. The bachelor party was good, though. Only thing I regret is not getting a slice of wedding cake. That shit looked delicious, but IIRC, I was outside consoling a friend or something when they cut the cake. Anyways, I think it'd be better if the person footing the bill just gave you the money to put down on a house or something.

I'd say at least 5k-10k was the range for the wedding I attended, I'd guess. They rented a nice location, had catering, cake, drinks/alcohol, and suits/dresses. I'd assume that's roughly how much it costs. I doubt the wedding locations in my rural area are really all that expensive. They probably shelled out 5k on just the location. I've heard some people pay 10k just on the location!

(Note!) I found the location with a quick Google search. Huh, I was spot-on about the price! Starts at 4k for a wedding at the ranch-thing where they got married. Damn, I'm good!

:nono:nono:nono:nono:nono:nono:nono Regrets are all in vain.

Make up for it by ordering a Massive special made Wedding Cake for your own wedding and make sure you get first slice..........................But remeber to leave at least 4 reserved special slices for BOTH SETS OF PARENTS.
