It’s good to see that you’ve got strong opinions on the wearing of wedding rings. To paraphrase MacKenzie, a ring is a standard and easily recognised token of marriage. However if you do work with dead fish you can be reasonably let off…
So this week I’m talking about money. Cash, dough, lolly, filthy lucre. Brits have a wierd aversion to talking about money but not today! One of our fellow wedding bloggers was recently lambasted for talking honestly about how much she was spending on her wedding and whilst I didn’t see the exact figure, it’s certainly more her business than mine! Bearing in mind that the average wedding costs £17,000 in the UK and the cheapest is the bus fare to the registry office and the licence fee (less than £50 I think) how much is reasonable to spend on a wedding?
Here’s some options to get you started –
1. No debt for me! – Under £5000/ $9000?
2. I don’t want to compromise on a lovely day – £10,000/ $18,000?
3. My day is worth paying extra for – £15,000/ $27,000?
4. You only do it once, right?! £20,000/ $36,000 plus?
