How Much Does Your Wedding Costs?

Most girls, including myself, dreamed of having a nice wedding to someone I will spend the rest of my life with. When me and hubby wed, it was but a simple one. We do not have the lavish reception and I did not even wear a bridal gown. Our wedding rings are simple gold bands that we both treasured irregardless of its price. 

But have you wondered how all these lavish and grand weddings came about? I found a very interesting site, Moissanite, that talks about brief history of weddings. It is very interesting to learn when the wedding band started to be worn by newly weds, when the white bridal gown started to become the trend in weddings, and many other stories that we just did not think about. 

Another interesting fact I learned is about the costs of marriage in different cultures. What are the bride price and which countries are paying the highest bride price. Such a very interesting topic I should say and I was just amazed of the facts I learned about marriage through the ages.  To answer my question on how much your wedding costs? I would say ours was less than $500 included everything like the dress I wear and hubby's suit. I just want to be practical and don't want to be in debt just to have a grand wedding.

oh I don't have much to share because we had a civil wedding and we only paid for the registration... our friend invited us for dinner that night too. we didnt pretty much spend anything aside from the registration fee.

All in all, we spent only about P200k. Very cheap na. But we had fun and we are still married, so I guess that is what matters. :D

As for me, I think I had a very beautiful wedding, not lavish at all, but very memorable.

I have a dream wedding too. But I think that will take a lot of hardwork before we can save up for the dream wedding.

We have a simple wedding ten years ago. I wish that I will have a church wedding someday. I want to walk down the aisle. My in-laws paid for our reception.
