One Expensive Day

Posted by Teresa at 10:07 PM



This opinion article discusses the "wedding
industrial complex." Basically,
massive spending
on the wedding.
According to the article, the average
cost of a wedding and reception in the United
States
these days is almost twice the cost since
1990. There
is a book called "One Perfect Day,"
by Rebecca Mead
on the topic.

Here is a quote from the article:
Couples buy into the wedding extravaganza as

a substitute for the lost meaning of the ceremony
itself, Mead found. For many couples, especially those
living together, there's little difference between the days
before and after the big day. Many weddings seem to be
more about the bride and groom making a personal statement
than making one before God.

This is truly a sad trend. Weddings are turning into empty,
meaningless events.
