Wedding guest list impacts budget

I was talking to an engaged friend who is getting married. She simply wants to get married, but feels the pull of society: fluffy white gown, pressure from family to have a large wedding, and friends who want to celebrate with her. She's overwhelmed by the thought of months of planning, mounting bills that will take years to pay, and putting on a party that she doesn't want.

What to do? I recommended that she talk to her fiance and together, they need to decide which direction to go. Perhaps getting married at the courthouse or by an officiant, then later having a reception with friends and family. For them a simple reception, with limited food and drink, and not a lot of decorations.

Each couple has to decide what they want. Remember it's only one day, yes an important one, but you will have many more memorable days in your lives. Most people are so tired from their wedding, they barely remember it.

Thoughtfully, make your plans together and stand united. It's your life, your day, choose what's best for you.

Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!
