I was part of a wedding forum before and this bride was complaining about her in-laws shoving their noses in her choices. Thing was, her in-laws were paying for the wedding 100%. I told her flat out (much to the dismay of the other brides, I suppose - -I wasnt the most popular participant in that forum) that if she was so specific about something and didn't want anyone meddling about that detail then she or her family should pay for it. If your in-laws are paying for it, make them decide.
Coming from a family of mostly girls, my parents made it a point to pay for things that concerned ME alone such as my gown, hair and make up, jewelry, shoes, bag, etc...Para daw I'm free to decide who I want to work with. Same with the wedding planner. I paid for it because I wanted it. Ganyan din mga kapatid ko. Kasi shempre, pag yung in-laws or husband magbabayad, I'm not free to choose who I want. hahaha.
It was a big day in my life - - but was it the most important? Personally, I dont think it is. I wait for the day our future baby hands us that IVY LEAGUE diploma :P That is perhaps the most important day of my life. LOL.
Where on earth did you get that idea?
A many men don't need a wedding so that "The woman is finally theirs". And many men avoid a wedding like the plague.
For men with purer intentions, many of them don't even require a wedding to be with their woman. They just go through the wedding because (1) the girl wants it, and (2) it legalizes their relationship giving social benefits to their wife and their coming children.
But both see the wedding as the day that their lover is theirs legally.
They want to also share that day to their family and friends. To tell the world who they have chosen to spend the rest of their life with.
When a guy truly find the right woman that they respect and love, they generally want to celebrate that moment.
I never liked ostentatious waste of money events. Why spend so much on a one day event when there are other priorities to focus on later on?
In fact our wedding was a total surprise for me. My husband just asked me one day completely out of the blue. Hey wanna get married today? I said sure. And we got married the same day, civil, just the two of us and the officiant. We didn't even have a wedding ring or anything and both of us were just dressed plainly. We paid around $50 for the license and the officiant's fees. Then we went to our favorite restaurant to celebrate afterwards. Simple, no frills and no stress.
Been married over 3 years, have two kids, paying off mortgages, getting ready for the children's schooling, dealing with household expenses, managing finances etc. It's obviously not a fairytale ending but it's grounded in reality and all the postive and negative comes with the package.
