ARE LAVISH WEDDINGS A DISPLAY OF WEALTH & STATUS?

I am not in favour of a lavish wedding. I always believed that one should cut his coat according to his cloth. However, it depends on the bride and groom and their families how much they want to spend. Some want to have an extravagant wedding, while others want just to get married in court.

It’s difficult to say what an ideal budget for a wedding should be. But one thing is for sure that people should not spend more than what they can afford in a wedding just to impress their friends, neighbours and extended families.

I got married 22 years back and obviously, my parents took care of all the expenses. I have never really asked them how much they spent, but it was a very nice wedding.
