ARE LAVISH WEDDINGS A DISPLAY OF WEALTH & STATUS?

How people celebrate their wedding completely depends on the couple and family. Lavish weddings, why not? After all, marriage happens once in a lifetime. Hence, I feel if people can afford it, they should go ‘all out’ at their weddings. My parents threw me an extravagant wedding. Lavish party and participation of my friends from all over the world made the function exceptional. I would also spend as much as I can to make my children’s wedding special.

Talking about the ideal budget for a marriage, it depends on the capability to spend. I think the expenses of marriage are not unnecessary. But one big issue I have found in Kathmandu is the lack of valet during huge functions in five-star hotels. I highly recommend a valet service while having big functions at hotels.
