    Wedding Woes

    So I am getting married next March. Do you have ANY idea how much it bloody costs?

    Just been to see the photographer. For what "she" wants, Ł1,600. Bargain.

    For that, any finish we want on the album is included in the price!!!

    I thought I take the piss with what I charge, but those guys???? Mental.

    Post your wedding woes on this thread to make me feel better....

    Wedding costs - they do add up don't they!
    Everything costs from ringing the church bells to royalties on any hymns you play in church to paying to be able to take your own video in. The list goes on and on and then on a bit more.

    I wish you all the best in your future and only pray that you end up better than I did. After 14 years of marriage to the woman I thought the world of I found out she was having an affair.

    If you think the wedding is expensive; thats nothing compared to the divorce!

    Honestly I don't want to put a downer on things. I'm sure you will have a great day and somehow all the money seems insignificant on the big day. Don't scrimp on anything as you only do this once so do it right.

    Good luck to you both.
    I'm an optimist but I don't think it helps much.

    Well, she has just called to say she has found the dress. When I asked how much, she said we needed to talk when she gets home.

    Thats woman talk for "a small fortune".

    If the engagement ring is anything to go by, thats going to be alot. Hell of a lot.

    I thought I was a money grabbing bar-steward being an IT consultant, but apparently, wedding photography is the place to be. Now looking at 1600 quid for the photos!!!

    I mean, these people take advantage of you on what supposed to be the best day of your life!!!

    That's exactly why they take advantage - as soon as you say it's for a wedding everybody triples their prices as they know no one's going to want to be seen to be haggling over the price for the big day.
    My advice is where possible don't say it's a wedding - just a party. Get a friend to take the photo's - wedding photo's are a massive scam and then you pay again when you want reprints.
    £15k is the cost of an average wedding - well worth it though think of all the stress & arguments leading up to it, the ridiculous amount of planning, the speeches etc all for one day that'll fly by in an instant!
    Keep it small, spend the money on the honeymoon and wherever you have the reception don't tell them it's a wedding!
    We kept our wedding under £2k, but I do have a very sensible wife who definately did not get carried away with such a massive waste of money.
    I would ask your fiance that if she really wants to spend £15k on her "big day", then you want to do likewise and take 30 mates on a Jonathan Palmer Raceday!

    Might be cheaper to build a robot wife might not be too hard to get into cybernetics what with having an IT background.
    You can all write about robot wives by using the text below .
