ARE LAVISH WEDDINGS A DISPLAY OF WEALTH & STATUS?

A wedding is a special occasion in one’s life and everyone wants to make it as memorable as possible. Yes, there is a portion of people in society who directly relate marriage to unnecessary expenses rather than a celebration of life. However, I am a firm believer that I look at the depth of my pocket rather than make a hole in it just to showcase my status in society. At the end of the day you should enjoy it. Your celebration should not become a cause for stress.

I prefer to say my wedding was a balance between a lavish and familial affair. We ensured our guests had a great time and we as a couple enjoyed every moment of it for which we didn’t go overboard.

Ultimately, it really differs from person to person. We cannot judge somebody’s wish list as an expense. What might be unnecessary for one person might be special for another. This is all subjective.
