Why Weddings Are So Expensive

Hot topic alert! Hot topic alert! Yes, weddings are an investment. But I promise all the cliches are true - it really is the best day ever and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. 

Case in point: I had zero desire for a wedding. After my now husband and I got engaged, I thought for sure we'd run off to Vegas or Mexico and call it a day. But you know what? I fell in love with a man who wanted a wedding and I'm so glad he did. Despite all my awkward introverted reservations, it really was amazing.

And it cost the amount of a down payment on a house.
