Why You Should Cancel That Big Wedding and Save the Money for Anniversary Milestones

Getting married can literally kill, or save lives.

Traditional foolery

Across customs and culture, weddings are typically grand affairs. Relatives and friends come, intricate ceremonies are conducted, the hosts serve abundant food and drinks, and guests come bearing expensive gifts.

Cash cows

In parts of Africa, cows are still given away by the groom as the price of securing a bride from her family.

Celebrating too early

Even in western traditions where guests give useful items as wedding gifts rather than cash, I honestly feel that grand weddings that consume too much time and money to organize are somewhat frivolous…. and illogical.

What, and those who truly matters

For me an ideal wedding should be intimate, regardless of crowd size. The key is inviting people I feel close to. Those whom I want to introduce my bride to, and vice versa.
